NIAB Digital

Innovation in data analytics

NIAB is committed to exploiting our unique knowledge of crop agronomy and plant science for the benefit of agricultural and horticultural production.

NIAB Digital, powered by software firm KisanHub, aims to improve farm business performance through data integration alongside crop decision support tools. Available on PC, smartphone and tablet, NIAB Digital is built on the KisanHub platform of core technologies which makes it easy to aggregate data from different sources, with simple to use dynamic interfaces.

Already available to NIAB TAG members, new subscribers will have access to their own secure, private account with; digital field mapping, NIAB modelling tools for field and crop specific agronomy, satellite imagery and UAV upload, farm and crop data collection and storage, field specific weather, and crowd-sourced crop, pest and disease information. Additional services include: ActivSmart, an interactive agrochemical product comparison tool; Potato Crop Management and decision support services such as yield and quality forecasts and irrigation scheduling; and a Trials App to map and manage field crop experiments.

Fully launching in summer 2017 NIAB will be showcasing NIAB Digital at key events demonstrating how use of the platform allows users to combine farm records with other datasets to make informed day-to-day agronomic decisions.

The platform is available to research projects to support discovery activities, data management and/or knowledge transfer.
