The theme of the summer course is: “SMART AGROINDUSTRY 4.0”. The webinar was on “Implementation of Information Technology in Smart Farming for Small Farmers”. Taufiq spoke about the current situation of the dairy sector in Indonesia, the opportunities and challenges, and how the use of tools such as UniformAgri can bring benefits.
