It assists farms in keeping track of their business, improves operations and identifies optimization potential by crunching data.
Increasing agricultural innovation & technology is talked about being the most promising way to soon feed 10 billion people. Today, agriculture is a $3,1 tn market with an investment growth in AgTech equaling that of FinTech.
Within the last 6 years we were able to establish a solid position in the German market. While we’re going to scale our multi-service platform by adding new functionalities we take on the challenge of synchronizing data, orchestrating microservices and keep them maintainable using docker containers on AWS (soon also with Kubernetes)!
