Whether we call it the fourth agricultural revolution, smart farming, precision agriculture or Agriculture 4.0, digital technologies are transforming farming. Mobile phones and other data-enabled services have increased access to information, knowledge, financial services, markets, and farm tools for millions of farmers worldwide. Small-scale producers use an array of digital tools, ranging from data-based crop management to mobile phone based banking. The goal of the Agriculture in the Digital Age scoping review is to capture, classify, and annotate—to the fullest degree possible—the research on digital interventions in agriculture, using peer-reviewed studies and other carefully selected sources, in order to help funding organizations determine priorities for further programming and research based on gaps in the evidence.
