When we think about limited resources in agriculture, water is normally the first that springs to mind.

The good news: research is providing farmers, landowners and policymakers with new tools to turn the tide.
Digitalisation is a game changer in many sectors – and agriculture is no exception. For years, technological innovations have been helping farmers work more efficiently and sustainably. Now data-driven insights can also guide them to improve the health of soil – the most critical part of successful agriculture.
