Farm Data Train - FAIR data principles in agriculture

The Farm Data Train’s main goal is connecting farm data to make them more useable.

The Farm Data Train, a short video explaining the importance of connecting data and data sources, to make them more usable for improved farm management and research aimed at further improvement.

Making the data into FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. This animation video is produced with Dutch Techcentre for Lifesciences (DTL), CABI, Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) and Wageningen University and Research and was launched during the GODAN High Level Forum at GFIA Europe.

Modern farm management requires ever increasing amounts of farm data. But today, this information can not easily be used because the data are produced and managed by various manufacturers of machines, authorities, and more and more by farmers themselves. These stakeholders collect and manage their data in different ways, making the data hard to find and use. Furthermore, specific farm information is often very business critical. As a consequence farm data cannot be used easily by farmers themselves, nor by agronomists and researchers.
