Cambodia Is Optimizing Farming Yields With Big Data Insights

By Joe Devanesan

Cambodia’s agricultural economy has been taking some major hits over the last two decades, but can an analysis-driven combination of big data and the internet of things (IoT) help make a difference in the sector like they have done elsewhere in Southeast Asia?

The corrosive effects of ongoing climate changes and a significant dropoff in production output have been hailed by industry watchers as the main reasons why Cambodia’s agriculture sector has seen growth decline from 7.2% in 2003-2007, to 4.5% between 2008-2012, and is now just around 1% in recent years.
