agriculture

Today, the agricultural sector faces numerous challenges. Land is not being managed sustainably and many fields are being lost to urbanization. We need to optimize the way we use water and soil and also adapt agriculture to climate change and growing populations. 21st century agriculture will be characterized by efficiency, responsible land management and fewer chemicals. Trends such as organic food production and urban and indoor farming are already on the up.

Digital agriculture will enable us to be efficient and sustainable. Increased storage and computational capacity, coupled with high-resolution environmental and remotely sensed data, have created unprecedented opportunities for data-driven discoveries in agriculture and food systems. Digital can be applied to all aspects of agricultural production systems, and reflects a shift from generalized management towards highly optimized, individualized, real- time, hyper-connected and data-driven management.
