Judging from the age of concept, smart agriculture is far earlier than digital agriculture. At the stage, you can simply draw an equal sign between the two. The difference is that when smart agriculture was born, it was only the in-depth application of the Internet of Things and the simple application of the agricultural system. At that time, our system was developed in conjunction with the agricultural Internet of Things equipment, with an ugly interface and a single function. After the Internet of Things equipment, there is the agricultural information system.
Later, with the popularization of big data, middle platform, artificial intelligence, etc., and the rapid development of front-end technology. We first have a good-looking agricultural information system (such as a resource map, emergency command system, quality traceability system, etc.), and then we think about what type of agricultural Internet of Things equipment to deploy and how many nodes to deploy in order to collect these agricultural data. At this time, the concept of agriculture also began to enter the stage of digital agriculture.
But at the stage of digital agriculture, it is fatal to not just talk about technology. Smart agriculture can be said to be the blessing of information technology and communication technology, and digital agriculture is bound to be a battleground between management technology and operational technology. Just talking about information technology is the narrow perspective of an outdated IT company, not the wide-angle perspective of technology companies. 2. Effectively distinguish between smart agriculture and digital agriculture Based on my explanation above, if you want to know whether what your Party B has introduced to you and deployed to you is smart agriculture or digital agriculture, it depends on whether there is only pure informational, without other management concepts, business process optimization, etc. enter.
