The future of agriculture will put consumers closer to farmers and their practices than ever before. We firmly believe that sustainability and profitability are not mutually exclusive goals. By networking thousands of farms across millions of acres, FBN analytics can help farmers maximize their profitability and yields, while minimizing their input usage.
We’ve already started. By marrying precision planting, fertilizer application, and harvest data with soil, weather, and tillage data, we can evaluate fertility in entire new ways. Our FBN Seed Finder system tracks the fertility response of thousands of hybrids and varieties for over a dozen crops. Meaning farmers can now easily search for the most nutrient efficient seeds. We also help growers look at the interplay between tillage, rotation, cover cropping, and weather in how they affect application timing and rates.
The future of data analytics will enable farmers to move beyond limited predictive models. We can conduct broad scale, real world analysis spanning millions of acres, annually and continually. And by tying grain buyers to field level data, we can help create markets for nutrient stewardship – bringing farmers more profit.
