Conference on Digital Technologies
and Artificial Intelligence for Crop Growth
Monitoring and Improvement

The principal goal of digital technologies coupled with Artificial Intelligence for agriculture is to provide precision and forecasting to improve productivity, and resource preservation, to help in decision-making for sustainable agriculture.

6 -7 October 2023:

An Open plenary conference was organized at the Higher Institute of Biotechnology of Sfax (ISBS).

Main topics

-Phenomics and controlled monitoring of plant growth.

-Al in plant phenomics
