Special Issue in Agriculture: Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture
Research in agricultural information and knowledge management will be the key pathway to handle the world’s food crisis in the decades to come. In the last decade, digital disruptions and digitization of information in a form of Big Data has given birth of a new era of Digital Agriculture, where satellites and drones could be used to monitor and measure what we grow and feed. However, ultimately, challenge remains in the extraction of knowledge from the data, developing techniques of handling data to manage knowledge and develop decision application for a better and sustainable agriculture. In today’s world, demand of suitable agricultural applications is dominating the agricultural research space, where researcher are continuously innovating novel techniques to make agriculture more productive and profitable. It is appropriate and timely to publish a Special Issue in Agriculture, which highlights the progress made in developing strategies for the successful adoption of knowledge and techniques application in agriculture. I invite those working in this area to submit manuscripts summarizing results of this research for this Special Issue.Dr. Ritaban Dutta
