- The main objective of the project is to connect younger generations of farmers with knowledge of information technology, and older generations of farmers who have years of experience, to increase their professional skills and competences. Young farmers will help older colleagues to use digital technologies, and older farmers will share their work experiences with young colleagues based on local practice and knowledge - explained Dr. vet. honey. Milan Husnjak, Project Coordinator in front of the Ministry of Agriculture, which is a member of the Southeastern European Network of Advisory Services. Namely, in comparison to many other economic sectors, agriculture is lagging behind in terms of technology more than its competitors in the EU, which is why it is extremely important to implement this project. Some of the digital tools are already present among us and we already use them, such as smartphones, the internet, gadgets, social networks and applications. The use of digital technologies enables agriculture to be more productive, at lower costs and to make the products better.
