Dear Members,

Our best wishes to you for 2019!

We hope we will be able to keep on building on our community of practice on data-driven agronomy towards collectively fostering innovation and working together to provide those involved in agriculture with rapid and actionable information based on data-driven systems in order to optimize productivity in a sustainable way.


Our Strategy

Sharing knowledge
The topic of the year in 2019 is digital extension services. We will provide you with more information about this soon.

Joint Ventures
In 2018 we closed the topic of that year on validation standards our tools. In 2019 we will continue working on this topic with a workgroup on designing standards for tool validation lead by Sylvain Delerce  (CIAT -International Center for Tropical Agriculture, Colombia).

We will also continue with our workgroup on global baselines lead by Zia Mehrabi (University of British Columbia). If you are interested in participating in these workgroups please contact us through the link below. Please stay alert to our website and your inbox about messages about these workgroups.   


We are looking forward to a year of working together within our community!

Systematic review data-driven agronomy services lead by WUR

You may recall the presentation by Mariette McCampbell during the first webinar organized by the community of practice. During her presentation, Mariette mentioned that she and Peter Tamas from Wageningen University and Research (WUR) are working on a literature review.

This work seeks to give insight into existing and previous digital agronomy interventions and find evidence of what works, what does not work, and who is affected by it. The review team believes that a lot of the interesting material and insights cannot be found through database searches alone. They would like to use the knowledge and experience of the community of practice members to  collect more relevant publications. 

Data-driven extension is the community's theme this year and this review would be a way to collect evidence from previous and existing tools and platforms, and show that the investments are worth the energy and money. It will be both exciting and interesting to learn about all the projects and tools that members know about. 

It will be great if you can spare a few minutes of your time to fill in this form
