“As emerging technologies radically disrupt all aspects of food and agriculture, how do we enable legal frameworks to meet this accelerated pace of innovation while leaving no one behind?”
This study analyses the ownership, control, and governance of the benefits of data related to food and agriculture. It covers genetic information derived from crop germplasm as well as other data from and/or for e-agriculture, also known as digital agriculture, precision agriculture, or smart farming. A key point is that the data governance challenges for gene sequence information are often discussed separately from data governance in e-agriculture, but the core issues are fundamentally related. Connecting policy debates about digital sequence information with developments in e-agriculture more generally can improve food and agricultural data governance overall.
