Interested in On-Farm Experimentation?
On-Farm experimentation is a promising way to explore the local suitability of best practice recommendations with farmers. In a digital world of data abundance, however, the risks of drawing wrong conclusions are also more considerable than what they were. The on-farm experimentation community (OFE-C) of the ISPA intends to list, organize and make best on-farm experimentation practises (social, data, analytics, value creation) available to users. Signup using the OFE-C expression-of-interest form to be in the loop of very near future developments.
Nobel laureate shows the power of digital agriculture and on-farm experimentation
Michael Kremer got a share of the 2019 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for his work on experimental approaches to alleviating global poverty. He notably showed innovative uses of randomized control trials to answer key development questions related to agriculture. Kremer recently gave a lecture at the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) to show how mobile technologies and digital agriculture can create innovations reaching out to smallholders as well. Kremer also addressed the role of higher-resolution weather information, customized pest-control advice and the opportunities to improve supply chains and extension services. His recently published work shows how information sharing through mobile telephony can improve yields and adoption of recommended inputs across sub-Saharan Africa and India. 
1st African Conference on Precision Agriculture - A Virtual Experience!

AfCPAAfCPA 2020 is now fully virtual! The event’s main program of invited speakers will be live-streamed December 8-10 to registrants around the world, and to participants of the 14 satellite sites located across Africa. Content will be recorded and available to registrants after the conference for a limited time.
AfCPA 2020 is building an enhanced virtual experience for all its registrants, speakers, and sponsors. As a fully digital event, AfCPA 2020 can maximize the inclusion of the global precision agriculture community, stimulate new ideas and partnerships, and strengthen the network needed to put precision agriculture in action in Africa.
