Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture organized a virtual workshop titled “Drones and artificial intelligence technologies in agriculture,” which was attended by several officials of major international companies in the agricultural and digital sectors.

The two-day workshop discussed four main areas: plant health, farm output, farm irrigation and agricultural management.

“The use of drones will be one of the main pillars of investment in the agricultural sector, in light of the geographical and climatic challenges and the lack of sufficient and trained agricultural labour and the failure of the human mind to match the amount of data and information flowing significantly in the agricultural sector,” Dr Bandar Al-Saqhan, Director General of the general department for agricultural research and guidance, said.
