9–10 May 2017. Kigali, Rwanda. The AgriFuture Days were organized by the Club of Ossiach, a group of agriculturists, agri-business managers, agriculture and forestry technologists, agricultural ICT specialists and environmentalists from around the world. They meet periodically to collectively discuss and collaboratively act on influencing the use of information and communications technologies (ICTs) to improve agricultural productivity, profitability and contribution to food and nutrition security and safety globally.

The AgriFuture Days 2017 offered the possibility to get latest information about new technologies as well as new concepts how to use these technologies most efficiently. So every farmer, a large one on his own and a smallholder with the help of advisory services, will benefit from technology integration and stakeholder cooperation. Around 20 presentations will give a great overview on technologies and business models.

The 2nd day was mainly focusing on workshops with following topics:

  1. Smart rural areas – a continuum to smart cities
  2. Rural Advisory services and ICT – not public, not private, smart
  3. Census and Livestock ear-tagging – smart animal management
