Smart agriculture video series launches
The video series – titled “Farm Different” – is a three-part series focused on the people, technology, and challenges of modern agriculture.
“We’re excited to share these important perspectives and insights from farmers, agtech designers and others involved in technology solving the challenges of modern agriculture,” says Robbie Paul, director of IoT business solutions for Digi-Key Electronics. “Agtech as a sector is set for explosive growth in 2021, and many Digi-Key customers and suppliers are on track to play pivotal roles in the innovation.”
The first episode focuses on farmers, talking to them about their current methods of growing and harvesting, the challenges they face, and their predictions for the future of agriculture. The second episode looks at the current standards and limitations of farming equipment, and how companies are rising to the challenge and leveraging new technology in their design. The third video considers the future of agriculture, and the next major breakthroughs that will address growing environmental and population challenges.
Mike Comer, director of business development and product marketing for Amphenol RF says, “Amphenol RF is excited about the future of smart agriculture and the positive effects it will have on the farming community. Our longstanding partnership with Digi-Key allows us to continuously support their innovative and entrepreneurial customer base with high performing, ruggedized RF interconnect, adapters and cable assemblies. We understand that as this vertical develops, there will be challenges. Amphenol RF’s talented and experienced team is committed to the development of products designed to overcome those challenges and to enable connectivity for the next generation of smart ag devices.”
The first of the three videos in the series is now live on Digi-Key’s website, and available in all local languages served. The second video will be released in February and the third in March.
