Digital technology and agroecology: opportunities to explore, challenges to overcome 4.1 Improving production: creating knowledge to support the transition towards agroecology. Representing complex systems within agroecology Large scale data collection for new agroecosystems Data-based modelling: a step towards new knowledge 4.2 Improving production: using digital technology to assist farmers with the running of their farms Adapting the principles of precision agriculture to agroecology: observing and taking decisions. Multi-objective decision-making in agroecology Co-designing innovative agricultural equipment and agroecosystems 4.3 Improving integration within the agricultural regional or economic ecosystem Agricultural services reshaped by digital technology Reshaping value chains with greater market connectivity Managing resources at a regional level 9. An interesting parallel is that of the "printer/ink" lock-in: printers are sold very cheaply but require ink of the same brand to be used, which itself is sold at a very high price. Executive summary 18. See issue 1566 (2017) of the Alim'agri magazine by the Ministry for Agriculture and Food, which summarises the various projects underway https://agriculture.gouv.fr/alimagri-les-etats-generaux-de-lalimentation. The Égalim Law (agriculture and food), which follows on from this work, was enacted in 2018. 19. In thirty years, almost 80% of insects have disappeared in Europe. 2.2 2_What are the challenges facing agriculture?
