Thanks to precision agriculture and advancements in equipment and computing technology, America’s farmers are building a treasure trove of production information that will help fuel future innovation. A new organization announced today, the Agricultural Data Coalition (ADC), plans to help farmers better control, manage and maximize the value of their data.
Farmers collect valuable data every time their equipment passes through fields and that information will fuel tomorrow's innovation. But currently the potential of this resource is not being fully realized.
The Agricultural Data Coalition, or ADC, is dedicated to helping farmers get the most out of their newest asset. Our mission is focused on designing, creating and managing a central repository where farmers can store their information and oversee how it is accessed. Data farming will be key to agriculture's future, and farmers should be in control.
