He visited at Saga, Japan in 16th to 17th of May, 2019 to have some knowledge on smart agriculture. Kens.co has introduced Optim co ltd to Mr Thione to have some opportunity to get practical site visited. Optim Co Ltd have AI Drone for agriculture which can use for spray water and pesticide on rice filed or any other field without any hard control over it. You can select PIN POINT so that the drone will automatically fly over the selected areas with automatically return to base.
Mr Thione was interested to introduce in Senegal as well as other African countries for agriculture. Because the young generation is less interested in African for agricultural work. So that would be an interesting technology to bring back to agriculture if such smart agri technology from Japan can be available there.
