Innovation Farm

The Innovation Farm is concerned with new technologies, trends and developments and makes them visible, tangible and applicable for the agriculture.


The aim of the innovation farm is to bundle competencies in the field of digitalisation in order to promote sustainable further development of agriculture with the help of new technologies. The job is the field trial, optimisation and imparting of modern, technical developments, products and concepts in livestock farming as well as in arable and grassland farming. The innovation farm has the fundamental goal of working out the benefits of new technical solutions for Austrian agriculture and facilitating access to new developments for farmers, making an important contribution to sustainable agriculture. The interaction between manufacturer and research is intended to evaluate and provide practical solutions for modern agricultural operations. The term Agriculture 4.0 must be made tangible and applicable for users. Opportunities, but also risks, are to be identified, trends are to be analysed and efficient and sustainable management is to be ensured with the existing know-how.
