Data science provides information about farmers’ farm management and data, which can be used to make accurate decisions which are available at any point in the production cycle. As the world population grows, farmers are also required to develop sustainable farming methods and implement more sustainable agriculture practices. Data mining can be used in this regard to guide farmers in more sustainable production by improving their productivity, predict crop diseases and pest outbreaks, and improve crop yield.
How should modern agriculture use big data?
Modern agriculture is increasingly dependent on data and big data is increasingly making it possible to collect information about farmers, their farm and their production cycle. Big data analytics can be used to find better ways to achieve farmers’ goals. Data science is changing the way farmers have been making decisions (Matthews, 2019) In addition, modern technology such as smartphones can help growers to collect data from their farm to make better farm management decisions. This combination of big data and smart technologies can make modern agriculture work better for farmers. Big data analytics can be used to advise farmers on how to optimize the use of their farm resources.
On the other hand, this kind of technology can also be used to get data from non-farm sources. Biomarkers which have not been applied to agriculture before can now be incorporated in it. This kind of data collection is becoming increasingly important to use in decision-making in modern agriculture. As mentioned above, data analytics is a tool that allows a farm to collect and aggregate data which can be used to make better decisions. Moreover, big data analytics can be used to make smart decisions that reduce costs and support sustainability in agriculture.
In conclusion, more data-driven agriculture in modern agriculture can be seen as an opportunity, an opportunity to improve the efficiency of a farm. Big data analytics is also an opportunity to improve the use of technology to make farmers more efficient. Big data can also help farmers to get new information about crops.
What are the impacts of data science in modern agriculture?
Data science allows a farm to collect and aggregate data from various data sources and make more efficient decisions on the farm. Data can also help to reduce costs. But, data is just one tool to make farmers more efficient. As the paper before this one mentions, smarter agricultural tools can be used to reduce costs and increase yields. But, a modern system should not be based on just one tool, but, a combination of tools to improve its performance. In the future, data analytics in modern agriculture can help farmers take better decisions which support sustainable farming. Data can be used to improve farmers’ productivity, but also make them more informed and accountable. That is, data can be used to increase farmers’ accountability on both the farm and with their neighbors.
Data science in modern agriculture can improve farmers’ responsibility to reduce their environmental impacts. The case of farming in rural and urban areas is growing. In 2015, the issue of global poverty and agriculture ranked number one among the seven priority issues of global governance (Rajan, 2016). The prevalence of farming in the global society can be classified into two extremes: one, agriculture is an important and costly sector in the global economy and, two, farming is an important and cost-effective sector in the global economy. Agriculture in a developed nation is often associated with less-than-ideal soil and water quality and the right environmental concerns. As we can see in the graph below, the main causes of food poverty (the amount of money that it costs for a family to
