Environmental Incentives a 'Tailwind' for Ag Digitization
The agricultural industry has been talking about digitization for decades now, but yet many are still calling it the least digitized industry. There are a number of reasons for this, but recent trends in carbon markets and environmental commitments could be a catalyst for wider adoption. Jason Tatge is the vice president of AGI Digital.
Tatge… “We're starting to see these programs specifically in the climate smart stuff. So we're talking about carbon today, but I call it all ESG initiatives, are going to be a real tailwind to your ability to have a highly accurate set of quality data. We're gonna start to see farmers grow specific crops for a specific end user, right, using specific methods. And their ability to document those, I believe will translate into premiums.”
Tatge said this is exciting for AGI Digital because they are uniquely positioned to help farmers in this area.
Tatge… “Not only can we do the field level data collection, but if that grain is then stored on the farm in one of the AGI brands of bins, and we have BinManager in it, suddenly now we're able to tell this story with these two pretty unique data sets for validation purposes, to be able to create additional value opportunities for growers.”
