Big Data On the Farm Redux

ABC Rural in Australia had a story on Big Data on the Farm last week that is worth discussing here.  It relates to many past posts on this blog, it is key to mention that most data still comes in slowly and not real time but the technology already exists to get real time streams of data for any operation around the world to anyplace around the world instantly.

The story referenced the American Farm Bureau and the big data agreements that have been mentioned on past posts.  The story also takes a idea here on a past post about UAV Agriculture co-ops and extend that to all data collected on the farm.  As farms get connected through point-to-point WiFi, satellite, or fiber optics, this discussion will only grown in coming years.
