This IDC study provides an update on some of the most prominent use cases being adopted in the precision agriculture space. IDC has created a use case taxonomy for the digital transformation of multiple industry segments. The taxonomy follows a hierarchical structure that begins with the digital mission of that industry, then the strategic priorities that support that mission, the programs that will be initiated to satisfy the priorities, and the funded projects or use cases that will be implemented under these programs. The taxonomy not only forms the basis for our market forecasts but also provides the framework for the digital journey maps that will assist our clients in understanding the full scope of enterprise efforts."In the agriculture industry, there's an urgent need for digital transformation as the world is demanding more food and agriculture products than ever before. With fewer people involved in farming and less arable land available, the industry must look for ways to increase production and efficiency in order to cope with the growing demand and major events such as COVID-19. With the help of technologies, such as IoT sensors, drones, satellite imagery, and variable rate applications, we can achieve these goals as the industry embarks on the digital transformation journey," says John Zhang, research analyst, IDC Energy Insights.
