In late 2014, seven farm groups and six Ag Tech Providers signed a document entitled “Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data”. This document highlighted a dozen principles regarding the use of Big Data in agriculture. What were they? How was a concensus reached: Has that document “made a difference”? Is that the end of the partnership between the thirteen groups? What’s next?
Leading Iowa farm organizations, agribusinesses, state government and Iowa State University have developed comprehensive action steps to help harness the power of agricultural data to the benefit of farmers. This presentation will cover the key outcomes of this report including plans for continuous, ongoing education for farmers, ag retailers, and policy makers, support for farmer-controlled data warehousing, and the need for assessment tools for new products, services, and business models in the digital agriculture marketplace.
