Doktar’s co-founder Tanzer Bilgen recently participated in the talk on “Digitalization and Sustainability in Agriculture and Finance.” Bilgen provided an insightful analysis of the current agricultural ecosystem, highlighting the challenges in digitalization, and Doktar’s pioneering role in digital and green transformation in the sector.  

Before we dive into the details of the talk, let’s have a look at how Doktar perceives green transformation. 

 

 

In the dynamic realm of agriculture, the call for sustainable practices has transcended buzzword status to become a global imperative. As environmental challenges loom large, the agricultural sector finds itself at the forefront of a crucial paradigm shift towards green transformation. The urgency to adopt digitalization and sustainable practices has never been more evident, and recent discussions illuminate the pivotal role companies like Doktar play in navigating this transformative journey. 

The Significance of Green Agricultural Transformation 

Green transformation in agriculture is not merely a trend; it represents a fundamental reimagination of how we cultivate and consume food. With the escalating impacts of climate change and the specter of resource scarcity, the agricultural sector faces increasing pressure to innovate. This transformation entails integrating sustainable practices, reducing carbon footprints, and ensuring the long-term viability of farming methods. 

In this context, the European Union's regulatory framework emerges as a catalyst for change, propelling the agricultural industry toward comprehensive digitalization. Addressing critical compliance issues such as pesticide and fertilizer application, this regulatory impetus propels the sector towards a future where sustainability is not just an aspiration but an integral part of everyday operations.

How CropMap Detects Grain, Silage and Second-Corn

While grain corn is grown for human consumption or industrial use, silage corn is primarily used as animal feed. First-crop corn is typically sown and harvested once a year, whereas second-crop corn represents a second harvest within the same year. CropMap is a data analysis and management application that relies on a harvest tracking algorithm and is utilized in agricultural fields. Detection algorithms are employed to differentiate between grain and silage corn, as well as to monitor the stages of crop growth and harvest. The CropMap application plays a significant role in optimizing agricultural processes and assisting farmers in making data-based decisions.
