Big Data and Digital Agriculture Platforms
March 9, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Speaker: Visiting Professor Chandra Madramootoo
Time: 12 pm – 2 pm
There are now many types of environmental sensors used in agriculture, and copious amounts of agricultural field data being collected. However, few platforms have been developed which make use of this data for improved crop productivity. The seminar will discuss the application of sensors and software tools as part of climate smart and precision agriculture systems, to improve soil health, and nutrient and water management.
