Hispasat, Eurona testing smart agrofood technology

Thursday 14 November 2019 | 08:50 CET | News
Satellite operator Hispasat, now owned by national grid operator Red Electrica, has teamed up with telecommunications services provider Eurona to launch two pilot projects in collaboration with Florette and Digitanimal to enable real-time monitoring of crops and livestock. The initiatives are being carried out in the provinces of Avila and Alicante in collaboration with local crop and cattle farmers and are designed to promote digital transformation in the rural agrofood sector while bridging the digital divide in the field through technologies like satellites and WiFi hotspots.
