Agritech Case Studies
Agri-tech is being implemented in the field

An Agri-Tech case study introduction, "Agri-Tech being implemented in the field," will be held within the "Kochi Prefecture x Hyperdisciplinary Society of Japan Agri-Tech Forum" to be held on September 16, 2020 (Wednesday) in collaboration with Kochi Prefecture and LIVANES.

Agritech Forum WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/kochi-agri/


Kochi Prefecture boasts long hours of sunshine, but is prone to typhoons and rain, making it difficult to cultivate wine grapes due to its high temperature and humidity. In this session, Mr. Nishioka of Kisvin Science, who aims to improve the quality of wine grapes by using sap flow sensors and grafting technology, Mr. Tsuboi of SAgri, who uses satellite data to sense farmland, and Mr. Ohata of Inoue Lime Industry will join the session. Ltd. will discuss the effectiveness of introducing technology in agriculture and approaches to quality improvement, using case studies.

The Forum aims to create highly unique demonstration projects in Kochi's rich natural environment through collaboration between startup companies and researchers with advanced technological seeds and businesses and entrepreneurs in Kochi Prefecture.

We are currently accepting applications for presenters and audience members for the Pitch Session.
The information is available on the convention website (see below).
