Aware of the importance of Agri Analytics and Big data in driving change and promoting sustainable agriculture, OCP Group and the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University initiate the Agri Analytics Days which will be held on May 8th and 9th, 2018 in BenGuerir city, (60km from Marrakesh), Morocco.
Agri Analytics Days is platform that aims at exploring Big Data to provide new efficient decisionmaking tools for helping agricultural sustainable development. New acquired, aggregated and shared data is a breeding ground for extracting and sharing useful information and knowledge among different actors involved in agriculture and technology domains to provide actionable onfarm decisions.
Today, a number of digital technologies and trends with the potential of entirely transforming the way we work are now becoming available to the agricultural sector. These include big data, internet of things, robotics, etc. Applying these technologies to agriculture could provide solutions for many of the challenges the sector is facing.
We strongly believe Big Data is one of the major building blocks for effective decision making for farmers, policy makers, companies involved in agri-business and agro-inputs, banks, insurance companies and service providers.
Agri Analytics Day offers the framework conditions that would bring together all the communities interested by developing sustainably the agriculture worldwide. Our aim is to explore Big Data Perspectives and Implementation Challenges in agricultural domains.
