Dublin, Nov. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Agriculture Analytics Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The agriculture analytics market is projected to grow at 14.4% CAGR during the forecast period of 2020-2025. Agriculture analytics is the application of cutting-edge technologies like Big Data, IoT, and other analytics tools in agricultural farming. The primary growth factor for the agriculture analytics market is increasing government initiatives for deploying improved agricultural techniques. Data volumes in the agriculture sector are growing exponentially. The increasing adoption of IoT devices that collect data from connected farm equipment such as smart tractors and drones is also driving the growth of agriculture analytics. Crop growers and agribusiness players are recognizing the potential for uncovering breakthroughs on plant genomics, livestock management, soil health, and faster development of new technologies in big data and other analytics methods. Key Market Trends Farm Analytics is Expected to Grow at a Significant Rate Over the Forecast Period Agriculture researchers are using artificial intelligence and data science to make on-farm predictive analytics before delivering the insights that matter in the farming land. The rising subscription-based service model aims to cut down the cost for farmers and provide them real-time alerts about crop conditions. Moreover, predictive models and optimization of daily tasks will give complete control over their future harvest. * Companies like Ag-Analytics access insights from precision agriculture data to address weather impacting concerns. The company uses tools like FarmScope, which combine diverse data sources like satellite, soil, weather, historical crop, and farm equipment data to create an analysis of the current state of an agricultural field and forecast for future yield. * In February 2020, AI and Robotics Ventures, a subsidiary of PTT Exploration, is diversifying into agriculture business by developing AI and data analytics systems for local farming. The company has planned to collaborate with Thaicom for the project. These rising investments by existing vendors drive the growth of the farm analytics segment over the forecast period. * However, the growing AI and other emerging technologies require high initial investments, efficient farming tools, and skilled and knowledgeable farmers or growers, thereby making farmers apprehensive about using farm analytics to analyze precise field data.North America Geographic Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Share Throughout the Forecast Period The primary driving force for the growth of the North America geographic segment is the significant presence of technology providers and increasing government initiatives towards smart farming. These players focus on entering into partnerships, merger-acquisitions, and innovative solutions offerings to stay in the regional and globally competitive landscape. * For instance, in May 2019, IBM Corporation announced the global expansion of the Watson Decision Platform for Agriculture, with AI technology tailored for new crops to feed a growing population across the United States. The company is providing a global agriculture solution that combines predictive technology with data from The Weather Company, an IBM Business, and IoT data to help give farmers around the world more significant insights about planning, plowing, planting, spraying, and harvesting. * During the last few decades, there has been a considerable shift from traditional agricultural activities to an organized one to improve agricultural activities through the application of analytics and smart devices. * For instance, General Mills, a multinational manufacturer and marketer of branded consumer foods, is planning to advance regenerative agriculture practices on one million acres of farmland in the United States by 2030. * There is high market penetration for emerging technology-enabled agriculture across the United States. In July 2019, the Federal Communications Commission decided to form a new task force to advise the commission on how to ensure farmers and ranchers have the connectivity they need to use and benefit from precision agriculture. This task force will work with USDA to develop policy recommendations to promote the rapid, expanded deployment of broadband internet service in unserved agricultural land, to achieve strong capabilities on 95% of agricultural land in the United States by 2025.Competitive Landscape The agriculture analytics market is moderately competitive and consists of a significant number of global and regional players. These players account for a considerable share in the market and focusing on expanding their customer base across the globe. These vendors are focusing on the research and development activities, strategic partnerships, and other organic & inorganic growth strategies to earn a competitive edge throughout the forecast period. In April 2020, Ag-Analytics announced the release of fully remote, on-demand UAV service to assist crop growers by providing cost-effective UAV flights and machine learning analytics. With the help of this service, farmers can easily place a no-obligation order in less time when the fly-out occurs in 3-5 days. The process is done entirely remotely, which does not require any physical contact. * In March 2020, Growers Holdings, Inc., a software and analytics company, is entering into a strategic partnership with SAS Institute to help farmers with data-driven insights, making better agronomic decisions across their entire agriculture ecosystem. With the help of this partnership, the alliance will have the opportunity to address the global food crisis in the coming years.Reasons to Purchase this report: * The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format * 3 months of analyst supportKey Topics Covered: 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Study Assumptions and Market Definition 1.2 Scope of the Study 2 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 4 MARKET INSIGHTS 4.1 Market Overview 4.2 Industry Attractiveness - Porter's Five Forces Analysis 4.2.1 Threat of New Entrants 4.2.2 Bargaining Power of Buyers/Consumers 4.2.3 Bargaining Power of Suppliers 4.2.4 Threat of Substitute Products 4.2.5 Intensity of Competitive Rivalry 5 MARKET DYNAMICS 5.1 Market Drivers 5.1.1 Rising Usage of Cutting-edge Technology-based Solutions for Farming 5.2 Market Challenges 5.2.1 Problems Related to Data Management and Data Aggregation 6 IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE AGRICULTURE ANALYTICS MARKET 7 MARKET SEGMENTATION 7.1 Component Type 7.1.1 Solutions 7.1.2 Services 7.2 Type 7.2.1 Farm Analytics 7.2.2 Livestock Analytics 7.3 Deployment Type 7.3.1 On-Premise 7.3.2 Cloud 7.4 Farm Size 7.4.1 Small and Medium Farms 7.4.2 Large Farms 7.5 Geography 7.5.1 North America 7.5.2 Europe 7.5.3 Asia Pacific 7.5.4 Latin America 7.5.5 Middle East & Africa 8 COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE 8.1 Key Vendor Profiles 8.1.1 Trimble Inc. 8.1.2 IBM Corporation 8.1.3 Deere & Company 8.1.4 Vistex, Inc. 8.1.5 Bayer AG 8.1.6 Iteris Inc 8.1.7 Ageagle Aerial Systems Inc 8.1.8 Agrivi 8.1.9 Conservis Corporation 8.1.10 PrecisionHawk, Inc. 8.1.11 SAS Institute Inc. 9 INVESTMENT ANALYSIS 10 FUTURE OF THE MARKET For more information about this report visit https://www.researchandmarkets.com/r/rmu3j1Research and Markets also offers Custom Research services providing focused, comprehensive and tailored research.

With two COVID vaccine candidates proven effective in trails, distribution of the shots is ramping up, which may leave you wondering, when can I get mine? Robert Redfield, Director of the CDC, discussed just that on Fox News, projecting the vaccine would be rolled out "by the end of the second week of December" and mentioning who would get it first. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.Those in Nursing Homes, and Others, Will Get the Vaccine First"First it's exceptional that we have these vaccines and it's very exciting," said Redfield. "And again, it just reinforces why I want people to be vigilant because we're turning the corner." He said the vaccine would be rolled out "probably by the end of the second week of December, initially in a hierarchical way—to nursing home residents, and then some combination of healthcare providers and individuals at high risk for a poor outcome. And those decisions are in the process of being finalized as we speak."The Country Club Village Retirement Community in Hot Springs, Arkansas, for example, is already on the CDC's list, according to local news station KARK4."As all of these pieces come together, we want to try to give Americans the best sense of when our most vulnerable will start receiving vaccines," Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said during a briefing Tuesday. "We believe we can distribute vaccines to all 64 jurisdictions within 24 hours of FDA authorization. Then, we hope administration can begin as soon as the product arrives. One of the private sector partners we've enlisted, CVS Health, has said that they expect to be vaccinating residents in nursing homes, one of the top priority groups, within 48 hours after FDA authorization," he added.

"By the time we get into December, we'll be able to have doses available for people who are judged to be at the highest priority," Fauci said. In another interview with PBS, Fauci revealed that those "higher priority groups" would be determined "according to the recommendation of the CDC." Per the CDC in addition to age, there are a number of underlying medical conditions that would deem an adult of any age to be at an increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19. These include cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies, immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant, obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 kg/m2 or higher but < 40 kg/m2), severe obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2), pregnancy, sickle cell disease, smoking, and type 2 diabetes mellitus.According to the AP, an expert panel advising the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also considering giving high priority to workers in essential industries."Once a vaccine gets a green light from the Food and Drug Administration, the panel will look at clinical trial data on side effects and how people of various ages, ethnicities and health statuses responded. That will determine the panel's recommendations to the CDC on how to prioritize shots," they explain. "I do think we'll have about 40 million doses of vaccine before the end of the first year of the year, that's enough to vaccinate 20 million people," said Redfield, "but then it will continue through January and February. And hopefully by March, we'll start to see the vaccine available for the general public."RELATED: 7 Side Effects of Wearing a Face MaskThe CDC Chief Says "We Still Need to be Vigilant"Until the vaccine is available, Redfield implored that we all double down on safety measures. "Clearly right now you can see the surge that we're seeing in new cases, unfortunately, in hospitalizations and deaths. And I just try to remind the American public that we're not defenseless against this," he said. "We have powerful tools that we now know they work —wearing a mask. That works. Social distancing. Hand-washing. Being smart about crowds. Really trying to be careful about what we do in indoor settings. These things really do work and they can really blunt this current surge that we're having right now.""Hope is on the way with the vaccine," he continues, "but over the next two, four, six, eight, 10, 12 weeks for many Americans, we still need to really be vigilant about these mitigation steps and stop the debate about whether they work or not. There's clear evidence that you, for example, that masks do work and protect individuals from both becoming infected as well as potentially infecting others."

Murtaza Khademi left his home in Afghanistan and smuggled himself into France because he thought he would be safe, but this week he encountered a different side of Europe: a police operation in which, he says, he was beaten with a truncheon. Khademi was among dozens of migrants and asylum seekers who had pitched pop-up tents on a central square in the city in an organised protest intended to attract attention to their precarious living conditions. Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin said some of the scenes were "shocking" and that officers who behaved unacceptably would be punished.
