The conference will cover topics such as what the  VIA platform can do, description of the tools,  how they work and how to partner with the VIA in research projects or business opportunities.

The Virtual Irrigation Academy (VIA) was launched at the University of Pretoria in 2017. Since then VIA has worked in 13 countries, collected data from over  2000 crops and has 1840 Chameleon sensor arrays sending data to the VIA  platform.
