From September, agricultural entrepreneurs and advisers can follow short courses on precision agriculture, nature-inclusive entrepreneurship and nitrogen. Aeres Hogeschool, HAS Hogeschool, Van Hall Larenstein, Inholland and Wageningen University & Research offer a joint training program about this.

Corné Kocks, lecturer in precision agriculture/smart farming at Aeres University of Applied Sciences, explains why the program is especially important in these uncertain times. 'It is our ambition to support agricultural entrepreneurs in the transition to a sustainable and future-proof sector. Even if not all questions regarding the commercial implementation of things such as precision agriculture, nature-inclusive agriculture and nitrogen have been answered yet. Agricultural higher education supports by training entrepreneurs and advisors in the transition to future-proof business operations, including a sustainable revenue model.'
