Kyrgyzstan has emerged as an agrarian nation, with a significant portion of its rural population engaged in animal husbandry and agriculture. Approximately 40 percent of the workforce is employed in the agricultural sector, which contributes to 20 percent of the country’s gross domestic product. In light of this, our upcoming webinar will focus on the subject of digital agriculture, as digitalization plays a vital role in the country’s overall development, particularly in the agricultural domain.

The modern agricultural revolution encompasses the integration of advanced information technologies (IT), which not only reduce manual labor and costs but also enhance productivity. Nowadays, computers are not the sole representatives of modern agricultural technologies. Digital advancements enable the comprehensive monitoring of the entire plant cultivation or animal husbandry process through “smart” devices that measure and transmit valuable data regarding soil conditions, vegetation growth, and microclimate. Additionally, mobile or online applications empower farmers and agronomists to determine the optimal time for planting or harvesting crops, calculate suitable fertilizer schemes, and even forecast future harvest yields.
