Harnessing Data for Agronomic Gain: Empowering Farmer Productivity and Transforming Agriculture in the Global South

This side event dives deep into the world of data-driven agriculture, showcasing how the Global South can leverage this powerful tool to transform its agricultural landscape.

We’ll unveil the intricate data ecosystems and modelling infrastructure that form the foundation for this transformation. We’ll move beyond the assumption of readily available data and delve into the crucial processes of data collection, standardization, and open sharing.

Key Highlights:

  • Unveiling the data ecosystem: Witness the journey of data, from its collection and standardization to its transformation into actionable insights.
  • Building decision support tools: Explore the power of data in creating user-friendly tools that empower farmers to make informed decisions.
  • Validated agronomy solutions: Discover practical applications of data-driven solutions that contribute directly to agronomic gains.

Join us and witness the power of data to unlock agricultural productivity and empower farmers in the Global South.

Session Format: In-depth exploration of agronomic gain dimensions through a thematic presentation, live demonstrations, a panel discussion, and a Q&A session.
