Technological changes in the agriculture industry cause shifts in the roles and power relations of stakeholders. As stakeholders vie for control of intellectual property and increased revenue, tensions can be observed through the emergence of open agriculture and the right-to-repair community movements. The goal of this research-in-progress paper aims to explore these tensions and offers a background of current research, providing a road map for our continued work. Research investigating information technology use in agriculture, precision farming, agriculture decision support, and analytics is relevant and important for the Information Systems discipline because it continues to push the investigation of the changing nature of work due to technology.
