According to the experts, by the middle of the century the world population is rising to more than 10 billion people. Combined with urbanization and the rise of the middle class, this growth will increase demand for good, reasonably produced and sustainable food, which will require double agricultural production.
To succeed we need smart farm-to-fork solutions. We expect agribusiness digitization to play a key role in resolving this issue. New processes and technologies optimize seed selection, irrigation, fertilization and crop protection; automate agricultural work with autonomous equipment, optimize use of assets and streamline the food supply chain to reduce waste.
You need to have the right platform in place to reimagine your business. You’ll need a neutral partner dedicated to an open ecosystem. The digital agribusiness platform enables applications in the agricultural value chain to evolve and be agile. At the same time, it maintains data protection and faith in collaborative situations and protects Intellectual Property ( IP), such as precision farming algorithms.
