DIGITAL AG RESOURCES
What is Digital Agriculture?
It is the use of digital devices to gather, process and analyze spatial or temporal data for integrated characterization and modeling. These modern, data-intensive technologies can help guide targeted actions to improve agricultural and forestry efficiency, productivity and sustainability.
About this Digital Agriculture Resource Website
We consider digital agriculture and applied data science for agriculture to encompass a wide range of topic areas as shown above. This site is designed to be a resource for individuals involved in digital agriculture and forestry.
The purposes of this site include:
- Inform regarding research, education, and outreach activities, within and beyond our University
- Offer a means to identify expertise
- Point to opportunities to increase knowledge
- Provide direct links to useful resources and applications
- Highlight and announce important events
