XMPro announces the publication of a significant review, co-authored by its CEO Pieter van Schalkwyk, in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

The article, titled “Digital Twins in Agriculture: Orchestration and Applications,” critically analyzes the role of Digital Twins (DTs) in precision agriculture. The paper highlights how DTs, coupled with technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), can enhance farm management, optimize irrigation, fertilization, and pest control strategies, and reduce overall environmental impact. By providing a real-time virtual replica of agricultural processes, DTs enable data-driven decision-making to improve crop yield, quality, and resource efficiency.

In the review, the authors discuss how DTs are framed within the emerging concepts of Agriculture 4.0, exploring their benefits and challenges across different agricultural lifecycle stages. They provide compelling case studies that demonstrate how DTs can optimize agronomic practices, farm infrastructure, and supply chain management.

Pieter van Schalkwyk noted, “Digital Twin technology offers a transformative approach to agriculture, allowing farmers to leverage data and simulations for smarter, more efficient farming practices.”
