Use of Big Data in Agriculture

Since time immemorial, farmers across the world have depended mainly on rain-fed agriculture in their activities. This has significantly affected production due to climate change and unpredictable environmental or weather patterns. Consequently, the sector which was the backbone of many countries has continually experienced dwindling fortunes not only for the farmers but also for the economies which depended on agriculture as the main contributor to the GDP. Technology is beginning to offer solutions to many problems that have haunted the agriculture sector.

These shifts, along many others over the last two decades, have been heavily influenced by the conglomerate Alibaba, affecting the supply chain of companies worldwide.
