The need for high-quality, healthy and varied nutrition is increasing worldwide. For some years now, it has been hoped that digitization strategies will help to make domestic production and grocery chains more sustainable, more crisis-proof and more resource-efficient.
The central aim of the DITAC project is the analysis and evaluation of digitization processes in the Chinese agriculture and food industry with regard to their effects on production, resource use and trade. Based on a systematic recording of the status quo of digital agriculture in China, econometric and behavioral analyzes of the adaptation and implementation of selected technologies as well as an empirical estimate of the economic and ecological consequences are carried out. The knowledge gained should serve as a basis for a discussion of future development paths and impact assessment of digital transformation processes from a global perspective. At the same time, they provide important information regarding the effects on international trade relations.
