Farming And Internet: Quick State of the Art
I recently stumbled upon article written back in 2000 by professor Larry D. Jones of the University of Kentucky’s Department of Agricultural Economics. The article tackles with elaborating emerging uses of internet in agriculture, but also with problems and barriers when it comes down to farmer‘s internet adoption.
It was a revealing experience for me to sift through some old pieces out there, written in the times where internet in agriculture was considered to be a very distant – almost science fiction future. Today, 11 years later, agriculture is moving fast in terms of further diversifying ways of farmers leveraging internet to boost their businesses. But one major, core thing still needs to be done – bringing agricultural production data to the web.
