Wildeklawer at the forefront of new technology and innovation – AI
Louis de Kock, owner of Wildeklawer Farm, together with his daughter, Christine, attended the Fruit Logistica exhibition in Berlin.
Christine, with a masters at Edinburgh in artificial intelligence (AI), accompanied her father to view the Smart Agri section of the exhibition, based on AI-digital pest control, AI technology for estimating fruit crop yield, intelligent reporting and reliable forecasting, decision-making support systems and harvesting drone. She recently submitted her PhD thesis in Computer Science after three years at Cambridge University. She looks after the AI-section of the farm.
Innovations are occurring at great speed in every segment of the fresh produce industry – be it in the development of crop seeds, fruit and vegetables, packaging or automation. The trade fair mirrored the entire spectrum of the value chain.
AI can help farmers to optimise crop production, increase efficiency, reduce waste and make more informed decisions. By leveraging AI, farmers can improve their yields, increase profits and make agriculture more sustainable. Wildeklawer is at the forefront of new technology and innovation.
