Course Title: S0210 Precision Agriculture and Future
Duration: 2020.7.9-2020.7.24 (2 weeks)
This course aims to introduce precision agriculture research and application in China to participants and further to the world, including the development, current status, and the future of Chinese and Shanghai’s precision agriculture. The goal is to show an overview of the development and discuss the potentials in the future.
This course take different forms such as lectures and field trips, to give an overview of the development and application of precision agriculture in Shanghai, China.
The lectures are elaborated by agricultural science experts who have rich overseas education, working or teaching experiences, providing a professional course design.
Culture elements are woven into the lectures and field trips, in order to help the participants to comprehend the background information and development condition of China, Chinese agriculture, and precision agriculture development here.
By the end of this 2-week study experience, students should have basic knowledge and understanding of the rich history, flourishing present, and bright future of precision agriculture in Shanghai, China.
