Is it possible to combine one of the world's oldest activities with a forward-looking perspective? It might sound like nonsense, but the answer is very simple: yes, and it is called innovative agriculture.
In a contemporary reality that is completely permeated by digital transformation, even the agricultural supply chain has managed to find effective and sustainable technological solutions: it is therefore a sector that is anything but static, and the set of achievements is called Agriculture 4.0.
Digitization, data collection and multifunctionality: these are some of the challenges that innovative agriculture has thrown at all professionals in the sector.

Innovative agriculture: definition and benefits
Innovative agriculture consists of the continuous search for original tools and ideas that will enable the agricultural sector to pass the baton between the past and the future. This is a concept that has recently appeared in primary sector policies but has not struggled to establish itself. Both the European Union and the World Bank, in fact, have included it among the main goals to be achieved given its close correlation with sustainable development, production efficiency and improved product quality.
But is the mere application of new technologies enough to speak of innovation? Actually, to make the real transition to digital transformation, it is necessary to spread culture, approaches and integrated strategies that act on the totality of the agrifood supply chain. In this way, in fact, the benefits will be able to affect the producer, the consumer and the entire ecosystem: optimization of resources, genuine products and respect for the environment are just some of the results that the advent of innovative agriculture has managed to produce. Precision agriculture, moreover, means the use of specific control, monitoring and data management techniques to increase agricultural production: it is therefore a true offshoot of innovative agriculture that in fact, has only recently begun to demonstrate its full potential!
The Caffini team was not unprepared: let's discover its innovative solutions!
Smart Synthesis Hybrid opens the door to innovative agriculture
An electric and innovative product that is the result of the best expertise: this is, in short, Smart Synthesis Hybrid, an award-winning trailed mist-blower sprayer recently awarded the Technology Innovation Award of the Lucio Mastroberardino Innovation Challenge at the Enovitis 2022 edition.
Born from the evolution of the previous Synthesis model, it consists of an autonomous 400v electric motor that is not dependent on the tractor engine: in addition, an ultrasonic sensor allows the reading of the plant size and its leaf density. Thanks to all the data collected, it is therefore possible to optimize the amount of plant protection product used: it will then be sufficient for the operator to set the size of the drops and adjust, based on needs and conditions, the volume to be distributed.
Smart, innovative, and fast: the Smart Synthesis Hybrid thus enables resource planning through the reduction of the drift effect and greater efficiency in the treatment of agri-products.
Innovative agriculture is thus a way of thinking about instrumental and strategic evolution as an ally rather than an obstacle: the new needs of the industry and consumers can no longer be met by traditional means and methods of production. Therefore, the passion and tenacity of the Caffini team have enabled the realization of technology that facilitates and innovates.
