INNOVATION & GROWTH
The confluence of precision farming, a re-birth of accurate ground, air, and air-born sensors, and cheap real-time processing power in the cloud now provide an incredibly rich set of insights into the full spectrum of ag markets. AgTech 2.0 promises to produce dependable yield advancements and excellent crop quality without sacrificing the ratio of raw inputs. Dependable Efficiency
Leveraging the recent advances of large enterprise IT infrastructures such as finance and healthcare, ag is now at the edge of a technological renaissance. Ranging from large ag, hydroponics, and even customer-driven small batch CSAs, technology continues to disrupt all aspects of growing, harvesting, and distribution by providing deeper big-data insights into product cycles, on-demand markets, and transparent prices.
Today's ag markets naturally include growers, distributors, and of course the end customers. However, today's global data troves collected today now allow farmers to selectively irrigate, cultivate, apply herbicide/pesticides; all to create a more efficient and informed ecosystem. These insights enable a wide variety of investors, insurance providers, and value-chain participants and empower the grower.
