Modern agriculture faces various challenges, such as increasing productivity, reducing costs, improving quality and food safety, and protecting the environment. For this reason, farmers must incorporate agriculture 4.0, which includes advanced technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things. Implementing agriculture 4.0 can improve production efficiency and precision, reduce environmental impact, and ensure sustainable and profitable agricultural production.

Group Saltó and the Catalonia Technology Center Eurecat are developing the SOMAGRO platform for the optimized management of robotic vehicles that automate tasks in the agri-food sector, using digital agricultural management tools and methods that promote the efficient use of resources and sustainable production.

SOMAGRO aims to be a reference in agriculture 4.0, facilitating decision-making and automating valueless tasks, allowing farmers and agricultural companies to focus on higher-value decisions or those requiring greater attention.

The project, funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the State Research Agency, and the European Union with Next Generation funds, was presented to professional audiences and companies in the sector at the end of March, receiving an excellent response.
