Why it matters
Sustainable food supplies are critical to the health and quality of life of all people.
- Global population growth makes ensuring sufficient, sustainable food supplies critical.
- The climate is changing, creating more volatile weather patterns.
- Severe weather events — such as extreme temperatures and extended periods of heavy rain or drought — create significant risks for agriculture operations and commodity markets.
- The landscape of agriculture is changing, leading to larger farms, more crops, and greater commodity market volitivity.
- Low commodity prices reduce the margin of error for farmers, making actionable insights vital to managing costs and improving yields.
- To make better operational decisions, farmers need precise, accurate, and consistent information.
- Precision agriculture can provide an abundance of information from multiple sources.
