Challenge

The agri-food sector is one of the least digitized industries in the world, with major barriers to collecting, sharing, and using data. This has stalled much needed innovation. Data owners, such as farmers, startups, and commercial agribusinesses, worry that sharing data will give away their competitive advantage. Meanwhile, agri-tech innovators who need data are unable to find it. With access to this data, growers could maximize crop yields sustainably, food processors could use analytics to ensure the efficient supply of food, and researchers could help agribusinesses become more efficient and sustainable.

Solutions

The Agrimetrics Data Marketplace overcomes barriers to data sharing and collaboration. Data owners can share and monetize data without losing control of it, and innovators can access critical information in a usable format. AI helps connect valuable agricultural and environmental datasets within the marketplace, providing analysis-ready data quickly and cost-effectively. By connecting people and data, Agrimetrics helps the entire industry work together to address agricultural problems.
