Study on “Precision Agriculture and the future of farming in Europe” published

Based on a horizon scanning of existing insights on Precision Agriculture (PA) and framing in Europe, the STUDY highlights four main concerns and opportunities for potential follow-up anticipatory action by the European Parliament: the contribution of precision agriculture to food safety and security, the support of PA for sustainability, and the fact that PA will bring along societal changes and require new skills. Cornelia Daheim led the foresight part of the project, realized in a team with Erica Silke den Hartog de Wilde, in which scenarios for the future of precision agriculture were developed. The main foresight insights are included in this REPORT. More details on the scenarios are available HERE. The final results were presented at the STOA panel and for members of the European Parliament AGRI Committee in Strasbourg and can be viewed HERE.
