Digital supervision in the field of agriculture has become one of the topics of the X St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, reports press service of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia.
The applied use of such technologies was discussed during the interactive discussion “The use of artificial intelligence in the control and supervision activities of the Rosselkhoznadzor”. The event was attended by Deputy Minister of Agriculture Svetlana Khodneva.
According to her, the use of artificial intelligence makes it possible to optimize the time and labor resources of the supervisory authority and provides comfortable conditions for supervised facilities. Modern technologies help to identify unscrupulous market participants who misuse land. Today, for this, the inspector no longer needs to bypass the territory, it is enough to take land remote sensing data and compare it with the available information. As a result, the supervisory authority receives segregated information for all objects and knows what needs to be examined first. This provides a risk-based approach, saves money and simplifies the work of both the controller and the agricultural enterprise.
Also during the discussion, it was noted that now the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia has begun to implement a project to create a federal map-scheme of agricultural land, which will be drawn up in the context of subjects. This work will allow obtaining complete and up-to-date data on the state of all agricultural lands, effectively identifying illegally used and unregistered plots among them. In the future, the map-scheme will be used by Rosselkhoznadzor in the implementation of land control.
In addition, the participants of the event got acquainted with the work of the digital platform for control and supervision activities of the Rosselkhoznadzor.
