## Sustainable Agriculture Technology for Sustainable Farming Transformation – Fireside Chat
Welcome to this fireside chat with Annina Winkler, an investment manager at Emerald Technology Ventures, and Matteo Vanotti, CEO of xFarm Technologies. In this discussion, we explore the potential of sustainable agriculture technology and its impact on transforming farming practices for a more sustainable future.
Emerald Technology Ventures is a venture capital company with a focus on deep Tech B2B Technologies companies in sectors like agri-food, water, energy, and advanced materials. They have a strong track record of supporting startups and have recently made investments in companies like xFarm.
xFarm Technologies is at the forefront of digital farming, aiming to make farmers more efficient and sustainable through the use of technology. With their digital platform, xFarm provides real-time agronomic advice to farmers, helping them optimize their water usage and reduce carbon emissions.
The agri-food sector is a major contributor to global warming, accounting for approximately one quarter of total greenhouse gas emissions. As sustainability-oriented investors, Emerald Technology Ventures is committed to finding solutions to this problem. xFarm’s data-driven farming approach offers a promising solution by making farmers more efficient and indirectly addressing the issue of greenhouse gas emissions.
Regulations are also playing a role in shaping the future of sustainable agriculture. Changes in regulations, such as carbon credits and subsidies for sustainable farming practices, create opportunities for farmers to embrace sustainability. xFarm has developed a tool that measures carbon and water footprints in real time, allowing farmers to monitor their environmental impact and potentially monetize their sustainable practices.
In addition to food producers, xFarm also works with machine producers, or OEMs, to support the digitalization of the agriculture industry. By connecting with tractors and other machinery, xFarm helps improve efficiency and optimize resource usage on the field.
As the digitalization of farming continues to grow, xFarm sees new opportunities to empower farmers and transform the industry. With more farmers embracing digital tools, the potential for optimizing supply chains and improving sustainability becomes even greater.
