[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries announced that it will invite local governments to participate in the ‘Smart Farming Cluster Project’ from November 28 to December 31.
'Smart farming clusters' refers to large-scale complexes of smart farms, mass production complexes, processing, distribution and export complexes, research and development, and manpower cultivation, which are automated utilizing the fourth industrial revolution technology.
Recently, advanced countries such as Norway are focusing on expanding smart farms that automatically control optimal living conditions such as water temperature and water quality, and patent applications for smart farming technologies such as water treatment technology and automation system increased rapidly in South Korea from 30 cases in 2012 to 66 in 2017.
Through the project, the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries plans to build a pilot farm to introduce smart farming and establish a basis for cluster formation such as wastewater and drainage facilities, water supply and sewage, and electricity facilities.
