UAE: Workshop organized to explore tech interventions in agriculture
The AgriTech Sector Development Team, a newly set-up team from the UAE’s booming agri-tech sector, organized a workshop in order to explore proposed interventions to promote the cutting-edge technology adoption in farming.
Led by Minister of State for Food and Water Security Mariam Almheiri, the workshop discussed the progress made by the team.
“The team strives to promote the adoption of advanced and emerging technologies in every subdivision of the agriculture sector to increase local production, establish a green and sustainable economy in the UAE, and ensure food security for the country’s citizens and residents,” Almheiri said.
It is to be noted that the agriculture sector in the Arab state, modern irrigation systems and hydroponics are being increasingly engaged, and growers are switching to organic farming.
