  1. 1. Cloud Computing in Agriculture e-Learning Module Start
  2. 2. Learning Objectives After completing this course, you will be able to: ✓ Define Cloud Computing ✓ Describe the evolution of cloud computing across data driven industries ✓ Explain the use of cloud computing at the point of production with precision agriculture ✓ Recognize the significance of cloud computing across the value chain ✓ Explain the key emerging trends in synthetic biology Back Next
  3. 3. Topics 1 Defining Cloud Computing 2 Cloud Computing Across Data Driven Industries 3 Cloud Computing for Precision Agriculture 4 Logistics Support and Collection of Data Across the Value Chain Back Next 5 Key Emerging Trends in Synthetic Biology
  4. 4. What is Cloud Computing? Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data rather than a local server. It has been widely adopted in data driven industries. Cloud computing is also being driven by the embrace of “Internet of Things” (IoT) data collection devices and sensors, including in the use of precision agriculture techniques in farming.

  5. 5. Adoption of Cloud Computing by Farmers Farmers are adopting cloud computing: • At the point of production, • In managing logistics of delivering production through the value chain, and • In the emerging field of synthetic biology which is being used to design seeds and crops. Back Next
  6. 6. Adoption in the Federal Sector Wireless data transfer, mobile web apps and cloud computing have all received significant investment and adoption across industries, driven by tech firms like Google, Amazon, Apple and IBM, among others. In the federal sector, the USDA was the first cabinet-level agency to move its e-mail and productivity applications to the cloud in 2012. This strategy has been adopted in their Office of the Inspector General, the U.S. National Resource Conservation Service, the Office of International Trade, and throughout USDA Headquarters.

  7. 7. Government Computer News explained that the strategy got implemented in 2016 is as follow: “The USDA’s approach to “guiding agencies through the cloud” focuses on federal security compliance and providing the technology and expertise to host any data allowable on the cloud. The USDA offers its services with any organization in government, including agencies at the federal, state and local levels. All are compliant with the Federal Information Security Modernization Act, certified by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program and equipped with the tools and technology needed to build applications.” Federal Strategy for Cloud Computing X

  9. 9. How did Cloud Computing evolve? The improvement in data processing speeds in the last five years coupled with the desire to have secure backups and ready access to data across remote locations has driven cloud computing. The concept of cloud computing dates back to 1996 when a small company called NetCentric discussed the distributed model of processing at Compaq Computer, according to the MIT Technology Review. However, Gartner Group has pointed out in a 28 July, 2016 report (ID: G00294396) that “many enterprises have failed to achieve success with cloud computing, because they failed to develop a cloud strategy rooted in the definition and delivery of IT services linked to business outcomes.” Back Next How to achieve success with cloud computing?

  10. 10. The Gartner Group recommend that enterprises: ✓ Identify the cloud-computing-related IT services you will offer or procure. ✓ Document the internal processes that will be affected by the identified cloud services. ✓ Map applications and workloads to the associated cloud services.

  12. 12. Cloud Computing and Precision Agriculture The adoption of precision agriculture has been driving cloud computing and all the major harvest equipment suppliers have installed advanced display software. The 2017 Crop Life/Purdue Precision Dealer Services Survey has even labeled the move to control all inputs to the production process something called “Decision Agriculture.” Back NextClick the image to enlarge

  14. 14. Demand For Hybrid Systems As you noticed in the chart, the most widely adopted precision services involve highly data intensive GPS-based soil sampling and field mapping (75% adoption) plus yield monitor data analysis and satellite imagery. Variable Rate Technology (VRT) has also undergone adoption among farmers looking to understand the variability of yields across fields, including precise seeding and fertilization which both cut waste and generate higher crop yields. Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) leaders are now looking at hybrid systems implementation, rather than generic cloud computing deployments. Back Next
  15. 15. Crop Management Systems Crop Management Systems, which are now being sold as Software as a Service by dedicated Ag vendors, have integrated seamlessly with the hardware platform such as the newer John Deere Field Connect system. Back NextClick the image to enlarge As the Purdue survey suggested, “A new question in 2017 asked dealers to gauge the influence of pooled data on a variety of factors related to crop management decisions (see the figure here). This would be the data aggregated from multiple farms, either managed within the dealership or as part of an outside offering.”

  18. 18. Logistical Support via Cloud Computing Agricultural trade is critical for the U.S. farm sector and the American economy. U.S. agricultural and food exports account for 20% of the value of production, and every dollar of these exports creates another $1.27 in business activity. Additionally, every $1 billion in U.S. agricultural exports supports approximately 8,000 American jobs. The Farm to Plate community networks have materially aided the adoption of organic farming. They helped smaller operators share information and understand local logistics and distribution systems they can embrace. Back Next
  19. 19. Collection of Data However, the adoption of cloud computing in agriculture has really occurred among the 3% of the 2.1m U.S. farms. By 2012, 3.2 million farmers operated 2.1 million farms covering 915 million acres that generated food, fuel, and fiber, with corn and soy the most widely cultivated crops (according to USDA Farm Demographics). For example, the Deere Generation 4 Operating System employs a standard display, improvements to ease-of-use, and all production data is uploaded to the cloud and can be accessed by storage facilities and event use buyers. Another advanced application was delivered by AnswerTech by WinField United last year by teaming with Google Cloud Platform and Cloud Technology Partners to build its Data Silo with a centralized portal with proprietary applications. This portal enables farmers to directly connect with retail partners.

  21. 21. Key Players: TeselaGen San Francisco-based TeselaGen the private-cloud platform will enable scientists at Dow AgroSciences to advance their research to find new crop protection and seed products at an accelerated pace. Dr. Michael Fero, Chief Executive Officer, TeselaGen, said, “TeselaGen is a platform that automates and optimizes protocol generation for biomanufacturing. This collaboration is a great complement to our previous work in medical and industrial biotechnology. We are very excited to now bring our platform to bear on problems facing farmers. Our kernel of intellectual property is a DNA assembly protocol generator called “j5” developed at the Joint BioEnergy Institute in Emeryville, CA.“ Back Next
  22. 22. Key Players: iGEM Some of the drive behind synbio has come from the iGEM university competitions started out of MIT in 2003. The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to education and competition, the advancement of synthetic biology, and the development of an open community and collaboration.
