Data Management Analysis and Visualization for Agriculture and Rural Development Course

Introduction

Agriculture sector have impact on number of sectors in the economy including manufacturing, health, education, wholesale and retail, transport, financial services among others. As a result, the agriculture data can go along way beyond the data requirements of the immediate agriculture sector. For farmers, data such as weather data, market price data, and agricultural inputs data can improve farmer productivity by addressing key constraints, providing knowledge and access to appropriate inputs, extension advice, weather warnings and market prices. Data on quantity of produce, seasonal variation in production and varieties of crops grown can inform other actors in other sectors such as manufacturing in planning on expected quantity of produce supply. It is therefore important to collect accurate and timely data from agriculture sector which will inform decision making in interlinked sectors. This 5 days course aims at equipping participants in data collection, management, analysis and interpretation of data in agriculture for decision making.
