Supporting faster, smarter decisions across the entire agriculture ecosystem

There is a tremendous amount of big data in modern agriculture that is created but never used. Past attempts at utilizing this data to increase yields and profitability have failed because they relied on manual input or remote internet accessibility.

Combining AI, IoT, and predictive analytics with industry expertise and decades of research aids stakeholders across the agriculture ecosystem in gaining insights into projected yields and potential problems, helping to enable better decisions.

Fulfilling the promise of modern agriculture

Due to global population expansion over the next 40 years, the agriculture industry will need to produce more food than the industry has grown during the last 8,000 years with the same amount of arable land. To overcome this challenge, IBM has brought together the experience of veteran industry leaders, decades of IBM research, artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, and predictive insights with unique agricultural Internet of Things (IoT) data.

Watson Decision Platform for Agriculture combines AI and weather technology to help unlock new insights.
