AgTech Hackathon. The event will run for three days, during which agricultural experts, information technology specialists and representatives of the agricultural industry will identify solutions to the proposed challenges and develop products in this regard. Innovative ideas must be commercially viable, sectoral, sustainable, integrate IT technologies, encourage collaboration and seek to solve one of the problems facing farmers.
