This week we take a look at the National Farmers Federation Data code and how it is helping farmers and tech companies better navigate data governance.

The NFF’s Data code was designed as a starting point for discussion between the farmer and the service provider about how data will be treated, in order to give producers legal assurances around how their data is going to be used, shared, stored and secured.
