Digitalization is one of the most important transformations in global agriculture.

Smart agriculture
aims to sustain increased agricultural production while limiting the negative environmental impacts.

Advanced monitoring and sensing technology, data capture, Internet of Things (IoT), GIS, and data analytics are now all being explored in commercially relevant and cutting-edge agricultural, ecological, earth and environmental research, and are having impacts on agricultural production and will serve to support the modernization of traditional agriculture.

This issue aims to explore the area of digitalisation, smart agriculture and geo-informatics.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

Agricultural information retrieval in geographically distributed networks
Digital tools and methods for farmland irrigation and drainage systems
Geoinformatics for farming system management
Development, integration, and testing of new and emerging digital technologies for crop management
Digital technologies for environmental education
Data acquisition and preprocessing systems for precision agriculture
Digital and intelligent applications for ecological disaster management
Smart technology in sustainable agriculture
