Ukraine began the implementation of a pilot project in the field of its agro-industrial complex. The project is aimed at reducing the number of illegally employed farmers. The World Bank is working on the project, writes “Agro-Center” with a reference to the UNN.
The project is about trying to control and verify the activities of Ukrainian farmers through satellites. According to experts, such measures will help reduce the number of illegal workers in the Ukrainian agricultural sector.
“Within the framework of the project, the technology of monitoring is being developed and improved,”
said a representative of the Space Research Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
At the same time, the Institute develops methods for classifying the planet’s surface and determining the types of land usage. The project is being implemented with the support of the European Commission and the European Space Agency.
“Today, the overall precision of classification based on neural network models of machine learning is 90% (independent test data),”
said the scientists.
In Ukraine, about 40% of small and medium-sized farms work illegally and don’t pay taxes.
Previously, we wrote about the new bill and whether it can help Ukrainian farmers to come out of the shadows and register their businesses.
