Agricultural and food research are increasingly becoming fields where data acquisition, processing, and analytics play a major role in the provision and application of novel methods in the general context of agri-food practices. The chapter focuses on the presentation of an innovative, holistic e-infrastructure solution that aims to enable researches for distinct but interconnected domains to share data, algorithms and results in a scalable and efficient fashion. It furthermore discusses on the potentially significant impact that such infrastructures can have on agriculture and food management and policy making, by applying the proposed solution in variegating agri food related domains.
