Just a few years ago, the word "innovation" was by no means associated with the owners of farms that were smaller than holdings. However, today everything is changing just before our very eyes – more and more difficult tasks in the farms are performed by machines powered by smart software with business processes converted to online mode to ensure remote control and higher mobility. Evgeniy Krazhan, B2B Director of Kyivstar, comments on the digital solutions for agribusiness.
