Agro-geoinformatics: the new tool for food security

A shift in paradigm from landscape to farmscape for ensuring food security, sustainability and land use management

Geospatial technologies are becoming an integral part of solving the food security equation from an integrated research and development, aid intervention and delivery programs, policy, and outreach. A recent advance in geoinformatics technology has opened new avenues for integrated agro-ecosystems research and applications. The shift in paradigm from landscape level studies to farmscape to underhand the matric of granularity within and among the small holder farming systems in a participatory and integrated agro-ecosystem approach to improve capacity and processes which leads to cross-fertilization of diverse interests and, by way of spill-overs, to the development of sustainable, imagery-based farm information services at a higher spatial scale from effective interventions to ex-ante analysis.
