Large scale Ag focused data collection and advanced modeling techniques have opened the flood gates of transformational changes in the entire Ag ecosystem. Data driven Ag insights are fundamentally derived from synergistic use of large amount of data collected from multiple devices, sources, locations and are also collected continuously over time. This convergence of geospatial big data, molecular biology driven big data, IoT and AI/ML and their effective use in an industrial fashion has a huge entry barrier. Microsoft through Azure cloud is developing a digital agriculture platform to specifically address all of the above challenges and thereby expedite time to market the entire gamut of data and analytics driven products/insights being conceived and developed by seed and agri commodity enterprises, agri-finance enterprises, agtech startups, and non-government and policy making institutions.
