Our recent webinar, "Unlocking Yields, Saving Resources: The AI Advantage for Agriculture," explored how AI can address some of the most pressing challenges faced by global agricultural companies. These companies, often involved in the production, procurement, and processing, while staying committed to sustainability, grapple with a range of concerns at both regional and farm levels.

Challenges Faced by Agribusinesses

  • Demand forecasting: Accurately predicting crop quantity and quality for informed decision-making.
  • Remote sensing for sourcing: Identifying suitable regions and farmers for contracting.
  • Quality and compliance: Ensuring adherence to the package of practices to meet stringent quality standards and regulatory compliances.
  • Sustainable practices: Promoting sustainable agriculture across the supply chain.
  • Strategic procurement: Optimizing timing for better pricing.
  • Global crop monitoring: Monitor crop health across multiple regions on a centralized single dashboard.
  • Yield optimization: Increasing yield per acre for greater profitability rather than expanding contracted acreage.

Addressing Agri-challenges with Cloud

Addressing these challenges requires a robust integrated cloud platform for agriculture, transcending the current fragmented technological landscape. To streamline operations, this platform should have the following features:

Ease of Adoption: The platform must be user-friendly and require minimal cross-functional training.

Eliminate Data Silos: Foster seamless data integration and enable interoperability to eliminate data silos and improve accessibility.

Ground Truth Data Collection: Simplify and improve ground truth data collection and reporting efficacy.

Sustainability Integration: Support adherence to regenerative principles within complex global supply chains.

Back-end System Integration: Ensure seamless integration with existing back-end systems to facilitate smooth operation and transition.

The Financial Impact

Data silos, inaccurate forecasts, supply chain inefficiencies, and climate-induced production losses can negatively impact profitability. Additionally, non-compliance with regulations like EUDR can result in revenue losses of up to 4%.

The Power of AI for Agribusinesses

By leveraging AI, agri-businesses can:

  • Bridge data silos
  • Optimize operations
  • Achieve greater sustainability and profitability
  • Enhance visibility
