In the UAE, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi has approved a series of incentive packages
totalling up to AED1 billion ($272 million) for local and international AgTech firms.

create a highly accurate agricultural database that supports decision-making and forward
planning by enabling the best use of resources and determining the optimum areas for crop
growth.
