With the advent of the Green revolution, there has been intensive use of agricultural technology. Efficient farms and adoption of traditional best farming practices, have raised the bar and propelled the growth of agriculture in Africa. However, agriculture today faces the new challenges of climate change, exploding population, water scarcity and lack of traceability. There then arises a need for agri-innovation, which can be used for uniform and instantaneous dissemination of knowledge and integration of all stakeholders and processes to ensure better monitoring and traceability.
Big data can be leveraged in a multitude of ways including the formulation of robust and scalable policies, processes and systems, the ease and convenience of real time governance, monitoring, controlling and optimization.
