Digital agriculture

Digital agriculture refers to tools that digitally collect, store, analyze, and share electronic data and/or information along the agricultural value chain. Other definitions, such as those from the United Nations Project Breakthrough,[1] Cornell University,[2] and Purdue University,[3] also emphasize the role of digital technology in the optimization of food systems.

Sometimes known as “smart farming” or “e-agriculture,”[4] digital agriculture includes (but is not limited to) precision agriculture. Unlike precision agriculture, digital agriculture impacts the entire agri-food value chain — before, during, and after on-farm production.[5] Therefore, on-farm technologies, like yield mapping, GPS guidance systems, and variable-rate application, fall under the domain of precision agriculture and digital agriculture. On the other hand, digital technologies involved in e-commerce platforms, e-extension services, warehouse receipt systems, blockchain-enabled food traceability systems, tractor rental apps, etc. fall under the umbrella of digital agriculture but not precision agriculture.

  1. Hello there! This post could not be written much better! Going through this post
    reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept talking about this.
    I will send this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a very good read.

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hey I am so excited I found your web site, I really found you by
    accident, while I was researching on Google for something else,
    Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a tremendous
    post and a all round entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all
    at the moment but I have bookmarked it and
    also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to
    read a great deal more, Please do keep up the awesome b.

  3. We are a group of volunteers and starting a
    new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with valuable
    info to work on. You’ve done a formidable job and our entire community will be grateful to
    you.

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  5. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your weblog.

    You have some really great posts and I think I would
    be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love
    to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please send me an e-mail if interested.
    Regards!

  6. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a
    lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the
    message home a little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  7. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

  8. Hi there exceptional website! Does running a blog such as this
    take a great deal of work? I have very little understanding of coding
    but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog
    owners please share. I know this is off topic however I just needed to ask.
    Thanks a lot!

  9. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Cheers!
