Exchange of experiences and best practices in managing agricultural land, digitalization and AgroLife application, learning about the practices in digital land management in Serbia, and identifying opportunities for further improvements, are among the topics discussed during the study tour organized by NALED for guests in the region. Along with the representatives of the ministries of agriculture of Montenegro and the Republic of Srpska, study tour was also attended by pilot municipalities from BiH – Trebinje, Brod, Srbac and Prijedor, as well as the representatives of Telegroup company.
The study tour, organized within the project „Digitalization of municipal agricultural land management“, was initiated with an opening meeting in NALED, presenting the results and exchanging experiences in project implementation so far. The hosts and guests were joined by the representatives of the chamber of commerce of Serbia and Republic of Srpska.
The participants were addressed by Stefanos Jokić, Regional Development Coordinator in NALED, saying that constructive dialogue about the problems and challenges faced by farmers in the region, and the replication of best practices are the only way to raise awareness about the importance of land management and ensure better and sustainable planning of agricultural production.
The visit was continued by a meeting in the Agricultural Land Directorate, attended by colleagues from the region, NALED and GIZ, presenting the Directorate's experiences in land management and the farming land information system. The hosts also had the opportunity to learn more about the situation in the region – how their colleagues from Montenegro and Republic of Srpska manage farming land and digitalization.
The second day of the visit was marked by a visit to the City of Sombor. The ceremonial part was accompanied with meetings, presenting the practices of Sombor on this topic. Additionally, the hosts and representatives of Teelgroup talked about the experiences with AgroLife application – a unique IT platform for automated agricultural production management, for all types of land.
According to Telegroup representatives, a particularly effective system in Serbia have been the meteo stations - around 50 of them in the country. Thanks to them, farmers receive real-time data about microclimate conditions and weather forecast with 90% precision, and it is expected that colleagues in the region will soon be able to experience these benefits as well.
The regional project „Digitalization of municipal agricultural land management“ is implemented by German Development Cooperation (GIZ), NALED and TeleGroup with the support of develoPPP.de program of German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
