“Smart farm is a concept of adoption smart technologies to collect and analyse data on the overall value chain which farmers can manage and operate their farm in real-time and reuse of data comprising plants, animals and soil to improve the quality of food.”
Small and medium sized farms, which build the majority of the global agricultural production, are traditionally slow in adopting the use of these innovative tools based on digital technologies for a number of reasons. This finding is more true in some Asian countries where farmers have not learned how to earn more money by producing and marketing their produce in a better way.
The goal of SUNSpaCe is to provide an enabled framework to develop an Education and Training System to help Farmers understand the use and usefulness of the new technologies. We develop an appropriate adaptive learning approach, tools and ready to use learning materials to be trained in “Cascade Training Program”.
What is the challenge of project?
SUNSpACe seeks to strength farmer adopting ICT to improve the productivity and sustainability of agriculture to support the vision of Asian countries…
- The Government of Bhutan aims to convert the completely agricultural area to Organic Agriculture (OA) by 2020.
- Thailand stablished new strategies for developing Thailand’s organic agriculture industry. A vision has been set to develop Thailand as a centre for the production, trade, and consumption of organic agricultural products.
- In Nepal, many projects and programs are promoting climate-smart agriculture and become big challenges to succeed.
More productivity and quality
- Most of Asian national agriculture policies are focusing on the potential of poverty reduction through rapid growth and quality improvement in the agricultural sector.
These challenges will be addressed in logical structure begging by the identification of the skill priorities and the requirement of smart farm, developing an appropriate adaptive learning approach for smart farmers and design four (04) training programs and learning materials to be trained in local and regional target partners farm. To support this program, the project will set-up a smart farming lab that provide knowledge in Smart Farming among Asian countries.
