This survey covers some very recent applications of data miningtechniques in the field of agriculture. This is an emerging researchfield that is experiencing a constant development. In this paper, we firstpresent two applications in this field in details; in particular, we considerthe problem of discovering problematic wine augmentations at the earlystages of the process, and the problem of predicting yield production byusing sensor data information. Secondly, we briefly describe other problemsin the field for which we found very recent contributions in the Scientificliterature.
