Standardization in the field of big-picture, data-driven, principled-decision-making, multi-objective optimization of agricultural and food systems. This includes interoperability challenges such as:

  • Agrisemantics;
  • Sustainability models, metrics and data in agrifood systems;
  • Livestock activities data management;
  • Greenhouse, controlled environment, and urban farming.

Excluded: standardization covered by ISO/TC 34 “Food Products” and ISO/TC 23 SC 19 “Agricultural Electronics”. A strategic objective of the proposed Data-Driven Agrifood Systems committee is to concentrate expertise on data management to serve as a resource for other relevant committees and where appropriate, work in liaison and in joint projects with existing committees
