Nature feature: Smallholders need access to big-data agronomy too
Our Postdoctoral Fellow Zia Mehrabi was featured in Nature talking about the need for governments, the private sector and agricultural-development organizations to create data-driven agronomy that is accessible to all farmers.
“…many smallholders have no Internet access and are unable to buy goods such as fertilizer or irrigation systems. There are shortfalls in the organization of supply chains, market access and advice for small farms. Such factors could stymie the vision of an agricultural revolution that is technology-based, inclusive and equitable.”
