Digital devices put data from our fields and facilities at our fingertips. Only by harnessing data’s power — and training others to do the same — can it create a sustainable agricultural future. At Purdue University, digital agriculture and data science leverages increasingly innovative technology with our world-renowned know-how to improve agricultural efficiency, productivity and sustainability.
What is Digital Agriculture?
It’s the use of digital devices to gather, process and analyze spatial (object) or temporal (time) data. This data can then guide targeted actions to improve agricultural efficiency, productivity and sustainability.
Purdue Agriculture’s vision is to be a global leader in:
- Digital science and agriculture education to prepare our students for what’s next
- Outreach / training to empower producers and stakeholders
- Applying data standards, analytics and management to decision-making
