Details

Some of the very biggest agriculture firms have been offering services based on Big Data technologies in recent years. The principle process is to use Big Data collection to make farming more efficient and ultimately making each field yield more crops with less inputs. Some big claims are being made about this type of technology, with some suggesting 10-15% gains in farm efficiency are possible.

- Learn what techniques are used to implement Big Data and why so many industries and companies are trying to implement its lessons.
- Establish what the offerings are from the Big Agriculture companies and learn how they work.
- Find out what benefits the technology has for farming and food production as a whole.
- learn what risks there are within the industry and what negatives might there be to collecting all this data.
- There is a broader reason why companies are using big data techniques and usually the primary purpose, hides a more useful secondary one.
