Iran’s Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology has signed an agreement with a knowledge-based company to implement a plan for incorporating modern technologies in agriculture.
Vice President Sorena Sattari and Fariborz Nejaddadgar, the head of Future Wave Ultratech Company, recently signed a deal, based on which the vice presidential office will support FWUTech in introducing an integrated smart agricultural system, YJC reported.
The company’s project is aimed at managing water consumption, automating irrigation, reducing waste and boosting productivity. The deal is expected to prepare the ground for the maximum employment of local tech potentials in the farming sector.
Nejaddadgar says the project has been selected out of the best IoT projects introduced during the sixth edition of the national internet of things exhibition Iotex2021 that was held on Feb. 15-16 in Tehran. He is hopeful that with state support, a large step will be taken to enhance the domestic farming sector.
“Soon, the internet of things will alter our life, from advanced industries to public transportation and smart cities,” he added, noting that IoT can make big changes in agriculture.
