This guide is designed to assist farmers better to understand the key phrases used in the on-farm, AgTech and connectivity sectors as they are relevant to agricultural operations. We want this guide to be a key reference point for industry to use, providing a basis for consistent use of language across the sector to assist farmers, and their technology advisers, to navigate the constantly evolving world of connectivity.
