Folks might be interested in the current UK experience of trying to fundamentally re-design agri-environment policy post-Brexit. This has been the largest exercise in public consultation ever undertaken by the agriculture department of the government and plans to set up a ‘public money for public goods’ system. This completely changes UK agricultural policy but there is some controversy about which ecosystem services we should pay for, how much, who should monitor, what are the indicators, what is the role of technology etc. Defra are undertaking various 'tests and trials' around the country (England specifically) to determine how the new policy might work and is trying out various bits of technology to see if they can be incorporated into scheme delivery. These include things like recording apps to help farmers send info the Defra, apps to map ecosystem services to help farmers understand what 'public goods' they can best manage on their land, remote sensing etc.
I have an academic project with the University of Sheffield (I'm based at the University of Reading) looking at how this new agri-environment scheme is being designed. The role of technology is a key theme in Defra's (the government department) thinking https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/geography/research/projects/agri-environmental-governance-post-brexit
