Through its 4Afrika Initiative, Microsoft Corp has launched a new collaboration with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) at the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) to co-create tech-solutions in agriculture.

The partnership will support digital transformation of the alliance as it works to improve food security for about 30 million farming households.

Through the tie-up, the US-based tech giant and AGRA will explore cutting-edge technologies like big data and artificial intelligence in supporting precision farming that increases farm productivity as well as profitability.
