What data to publish first?

The agricultural sector is diverse (including husbandry, forestry, fisheries, horticulture, aquaculture, etc) with many types of actors and organisations involved. The list of open datasets that could improve agriculture is extensive, however, in this section, we focus on arable farming.

This section focuses on what data may be opened to catalyze agriculture transformation in arable farming. Broadly,  the data that may be opened depends on the policy perspective and that goals of the country or regional area. Of course, the challenges vary among areas.

We introduce:

  • Six policy perspectives where open government data can make a difference
  • Fourteen key data categories for agriculture that emerged from global consultation with experts agronomic and open data experts
  • A decision matrix to explain how these 14 data categories can impact the 6 policy perspectives describing a number of use cases.
