Increasing data quantity and richness coupled to innovative informatics will support novel business, management and policy approaches in agricultural sector.
Agricultural systems are complex, with multi-tiered desired outcomes, some market driven, many others not. Policy outcomes from agricultural systems are also evolving, including outcomes in terms of ecosystem services or landscape stewardship that cannot immediately be monetarised, as well as monetary outcomes which cannot be directly predicted (such as marketable yield). We are interested here in the development of novel models and analytical methods which can provide insights and predictions of critical but hard to obtain outcomes from agricultural systems, developing an understanding of key drivers of ecological/environmental integrity and value, economic viability and farmer livelihood.Nawar, S., Corstanje, R., Halcro, G., Mouazen, A.M., Delineation of soil management zones for variable rate fertilisation - a review.
