PROBLEM: High-Risk Industry with Ever-Changing Conditions
Being a modern agriculture producer requires a lot of diverse skills and carries a lot of responsibility. The output from your fields and herds affect not only your bottom line but the nation’s — and the world’s — economies. An environmental disaster that wipes out crops or devastates livestock means your profits slump, market prices rise, and people go hungry. You are charged with delivering the right amount of quality product on time, despite market and meteorological conditions changing every day. Agriculture can be a high-risk industry, but there are ways to mitigate risks and use the changing conditions to your advantage. With the right information at your disposal, you can generate the highest possible yield from every acre, crop, or head of livestock.
