Beyond fascinating smart tools: everyday digitalisation in agriculture and food

Here I share a paper published in the Geoagenda of the Swiss Association of Geography. In this paper I offer some thoughts on everyday challenges in the digitalization of agriculture.

The paper highlights a few points to debate on:

  • If hi-tech farming practices are important to study, we should not forget more subtle aspects of an everyday digitalization of agriculture and food.
  • How do we create an intellectual environment that allows the combination of critical perspectives on power relations related to digitalization, and more hopeful approaches of alternative uses of digital technologies?
  • We should not forget that issues of power and control are always central in the development of new knowledge and new technologies.
