Isabella Rodriguez y Baena's picture

The new issue of ICT Update, no. 79 "Data Revolution for Agriculture", by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation, has just been published. The authors, by asking the key questions "What does open data mean for agriculture?" and "Why should people care about open data in agriculture and nutrition?", analize if - and how - the data revolution is affecting the agricultural sector and the life of rural people.

"As mobile phones, tablets and improved connectivity spread across the world, the amount of data we are gathering and storing is increasing exponentially. With every satellite launch we add further data at ever increasing detail. Knowledge is a core input to agriculture, while data and information are the foundation of knowledge. Is agriculture making the most of the data revolution?"
