Virtual Workshop on
Data Science for Agriculture and Natural Resource Management
(DSANRM 2020)

16th December, 2020



DSANRM-2020 address challenges and issues related to Data Science in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management, data mining of weather or crop production data for estimation or prediction of disease, tools, and data mining for the prediction models to solve the problem and develop frameworks for data mining in a specific domain of agricultural databases. The Indian Society of Agricultural Information Technology (INSAIT) is organizing this virtual workshop on 16th December, 2020 in collaboration with Ahmedabad University as a part of the 8th International Conference on Big Data Analytics 2020 (BDA2020) ( to be held at Ashoka University, Sonipat, Haryana, India during 15-18 December, 2020 in India.

Supporting Organizations

Indian Society of Agricultural Information Technology (INSAIT)
In India, the majority of the population still depends on agriculture for livelihood. Indian agriculture has stood the test of time and achieved green, white, yellow, blue and cyber revolutions. Access to information and its effective use as knowledge is crucial for successful economic development. Instant access to information on the availability of inputs, financial resources, technological innovations and changing market conditions has become critical to the viability of rural economy. In this context, it is most prudent to extend the benefit of IT to agriculture and allied industries. Efforts in this direction would help in extending the benefits of technological advances to the rural people. As a first step in this direction, the Indian Society of Agricultural Information Technology (INSAIT), a professional society was launched at Dharwad in the year 2000.
