Harvest forecasts for the business world
Three graduates from Würzburg University will be supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology’s start-up program, EXIST. In their own company, the former students of the department headed by the director of DFD, Prof. Stefan Dech, intend to produce from satellite data precise harvest forecasts for the agricultural sector. “We are proud of our young colleagues. This step from the science world to independent employment is an excellent idea” is the way Prof. Dech sums up the plan. The business concept is an outgrowth of two doctoral dissertations dealing with sustainable land management, co-supervised by Prof. Christopher Conrad.
