This short discussion paper considers the current agricultural extension shortfalls and considers how agricultural big data might be used to change the way unknown on-farm issues are identified and managed. The premise being that if unknown issues are brought to light on an individual basis, and potential solutions discussed within trusted networks, that this will enhance the incidence of practice change. Knowledge is discussed in terms of that which is known and that which is not, with the discussion focused on the use of data to help realise unknown knowledge and thus determine on-farm issues, as well as predict cause and effect. The paper draws on the concepts of big data and networked learning to provide a base model on which digital platforms might operate to provide efficiencies in the on-farm decision-making process, as well as enhance the power of those decisions.
