The governmental team was present at the conference to promote agricultural business between the Republique of Congo and the Netherlands. They showed vivid interest in FutureWater and HiView’s joint flying sensors applications in the agricultural sector. Especially the ThirdEye service, that FutureWater-HiView havecommonly set up in the period of the last 5 years in different countries on the African continent, like Mozambique and Kenya, received much attention. The ThirdEye service uses flying sensors to monitor crops of (smallholder) African farmers and subsequently provide in-field agronomical advisory.
