New and emerging technologies such as IoT, big data, remote sensing, AI and ML are playing a transformative role in converting traditional agriculture into data-driven precision farming, says Mr Nalin Rawal, CEO of NCML AGCON, one of India’s largest integrated weather, agri & commodity risk management company.
