Scope: ISO TC on Data-Driven Agrifood Systems
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 agrifoodsystems;
   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
