Digital Agriculture Association
Digital agriculture is emerging as one of the most exciting new innovation spaces in the food and agriculture sector. There is a high level of interest from consumers, investors and policymakers in the potential of this new approach to help deliver a sustainable and secure food supply. While there is a lot of positive interest in this field, there also are several policy and regulatory issues that companies will need to address to ensure they are able to grow and maintain their license to operate. These include topics such as privacy and data use policies, intellectual property, technology transfer, and public perceptions of benefits. The Digital Agriculture Association aims to bring the voice of the private sector to these prevailing issues and nurture an ecosystem for organizations working in the digital agriculture space for increased cooperation.
Emerging ag is spearheading the formation of the Digital Agriculture Association and will provide secretariat services.
The Association will draw membership from private sector companies collecting and storing information on primary agriculture, working across different regions around the world in both large-scale farming and small-scale production.
