Surveillance, land use planning and forced reforestation are imposed on peasant communities. The World March of Women, Red TECLA, Grupo ETC and REDES-Friends of the Earth Uruguay share this animation on Agriculture 4.0.
The so-called Agriculture 4.0 articulates changes in the way agriculture is practiced, directly impacting farmers. These changes are linked to the use of digital technologies in agricultural machinery and new equipment, such as drones and increasingly automated sensors.
With the use of these technologies and equipment, the extraction of climate, soil and management data, and their processing by large companies, becomes central. These large databases allow agriculture to become more and more part of the financialized circuit of capital, organized by speculation.
