Informatics for guiding/directing agricultural production - Research and expert work on the drafting, design, and accessibility of useful/necessary information to guide agricultural production efficiency and environmental performance. The examples below represent an attempt to develop information and databases for land assessment, for example, to predict the increased risk of drought.
