The use of state-of-the-art technology to achieve better results is a fact that occurs in all activities and the Colombian agricultural sector is no stranger to it. The Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies develop the Agro 4.0 program, which aims to generate public policy recommendations for technological appropriation, aimed at encouraging the use and adoption of advanced technologies and exploitation of data in Colombian agriculture as factors that increase productivity and competitiveness. To fulfill this purpose, ten pilots are being developed in different regions of the country, which benefit small and medium farmers from three production chains, coffee, cocoa, and avocado, although the idea later is to expand it to more lines. These pilots will impact a hundred direct and indirect producers from municipalities such as Urrao (Antioquia), Andes (Antioquia), Florián (Santander), El Carmen de Chucurí (Santander), Isnos (Huila), Tierralta (Córdoba), Florencia (Caquetá), Urumita (La Guajira), Santa Marta (Magdalena) and Chinchiná (Caldas).
