CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture
The database includes varietal release and adoption estimates for eleven CGIAR mandated crops across 15 countries: 134 crop-country-combinations (CCCs) in the South, Southeast, and East Asia region. Data were collected by the CGIAR Centers (CIAT, CIMMYT, CIP, IRRI and ICRISAT) and their national partners.
The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture is where information becomes power: power to predict, prescribe, and produce more food, more sustainably. It democratizes decades of agricultural data empowering analysts, statisticians, programmers and more to mine information for trends and quirks, and develop rapid, accurate and compelling recommendations for farmers, researchers and policymakers.
