Chair of Digital Farming


Chair of Digital Farming

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Dörr


Research focus

  • Software and systems engineering in the field of Digital Farming
  • Requirements analysis for different actors in the agricultural ecosystem
  • Improving interoperability and networking between actors and systems
  • Improving the user acceptance of digital farming solutions (e.g. FMIS, decision support systems, agricultural machinery)
  • Data management for innovative solutions in the food chain


Our chair cooperates with the Friends of Digital Farming e.V., in which renowned companies along the value chain, such as BASF, John Deere, Hochwald, Aldi Süd but also agricultural practitioners such as the Hofgut Neumühle Teaching and Research Institute are represented. Furthermore, the chair is active in the national AI lighthouse project Nachhaltige Landwirtschaft mittels KI (Sustainable Agriculture Using AI) active and collaborates closely with the Smart Farming program of Fraunhofer IESE in Kaiserslautern.

Our Research

Research focus: Digitalization in agriculture

In agriculture, there is a high degree of heterogeneity between the individual actors and the systems used. This makes it difficult to network the systems due to a lack of interoperability. Digital farming solutions (e.g. farm management systems, decision support systems, agricultural machinery) also often meet with low user acceptance due to a lack of transparency..... More
