The Smart Farming program is a collaboration between Bodossaki Foundation, AB Vassilopoulos, and the American Farm School in Greece, aimed at supporting Greek agriculture. Their goal is to introduce new technologies to Greek farmers to improve productivity and sustainability. The program focuses on providing tools and training to farmers, promoting the use of high-tech solutions in agriculture.

The program introduces telemetry devices to monitor weather and soil conditions on farms, helping farmers make informed decisions about irrigation and other farming practices. These devices, installed in key agricultural areas across Greece, provide real-time data accessible via computers and smartphones. Additionally, the program includes training sessions and educational visits for farmers and students, fostering a community of knowledge-sharing and collaboration.

Through the Smart Farming program, about 155 farmers directly benefit from improved farm management and resource utilization.
