Data-Driven Knowledge Agriculture: A Paradigm Shift for Enhancing
Farm Productivity & Global Food Security

Aprajita Srivastava & Dr. H. O. Srivastava

Abstract- Data-driven Knowledge agriculture using mechanized intelligent computer-based
monitoring and control systems and complex Software for machine learning and visualization for
predicting a variety of parameters such as future food requirements, resource planning for higher
yield, and supply chain is the future of farming. This needs to be urgently adopted by the world
farming community to provide food to the growing world population, remove hunger, and at the
same time sustain planet resources by judicious uses of input such as water, fertilizer, pesticide
etc., as envisioned by Sustainable Development Goals 2030. This paper discusses data-driven
technology for identifying trends and other insights for making informed decisions for enhanced
productivity and profitability, through market research and evaluating customer needs and
Keywords: precision agriculture, knowledge agriculture, data-driven agriculture, SDG2030, farm

Lesson 2 : Takeaways and Solutions









Lesson 3 : Course of action

Present situation

It would be seen that so far the work on SDG2030 goals have remained unfulfilled.
The poverty has increased;
Climate has deteriorated;
Most of the targets fixed for 2020 have not been achieved “


“From the analysis in Lesson-2, it can be seen that the solutions can be divided in two parts:
Those which need public participation with the help various agencies. These involve education and skill development, agriculture using modern methods etc.;
Those which need Government’s interaction such as Infrastructure building and policy changes.”
