IBM expands AI-based platform for precision agriculture

Geospatial World reports that IBM has announced the global expansion plans for its Watson Decision Platform which supports precision agriculture. The AI-based platform is customized as per new crops and regional variations to enable food security for the rapidly booming population.

Merging predictive technology and data analytics, the platform would provide insights to farmers on issues related to cultivation planning, planting, spraying herbicides and insecticides, and harvesting.

IBM aims to increase crop yield, value and profitability for the farmers by a combination of historical, current and forecast datasets, along with weather prediction models provided by The Weather Company.

New crop models include corn, wheat, soy, cotton, sorghum, barley, sugar cane and potato, says IBM. These models will be available in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Brazil, and other markets across Europe, Africa and Australia.
