Cool Farm Tool Adds Depth to Agrible’s Predictive Analytics Platform to Help Growers Make the Best Decisions Possible and Improve Productivity Globally
Champaign, Ill., February 20, 2018- In a move designed to enhance its services on a global scale, Agrible has partnered with Cool Farm Alliance (CFA) to bring Agrible’s Sustainable Sourcing platform to more growers around the world.
"Agrible is laying the foundation for the next generation of agricultural systems and technologies with partners like CFA to make farmers around the world more productive, profitable, and efficient. Access to globally-scalable services and technology to help farmers make more informed decisions is our passion and commitment,” said Jeff Peters, Agrible’s VP of Sustainability.
The challenge agriculture has ahead is increasing production while optimizing natural resource use. The goal of CFA’s Cool Farm Tool (CFT) is to enable millions of growers across the globe to make on-farm decisions using management options that reduce their environmental impact and improve their sustainability.
"We are excited to announce Agrible's membership in CFA. Our members see integration of the CFT with farm management software as a key enabler for scaling sustainability measurement and management in their supply chains, and we're delighted to start this process with Agrible,” said Simon Miller, General Manager at Cool Farm Alliance.
"This collaboration will enable reporting of The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and is a big step forward in mobilizing data from farm to retail. Agrible and CFA are important partners in TSC’s commitment to solve for farm data connectivity and interoperability along supply chains. This addition to the Agrible platform will enable growers to have easy and flexible sustainability reporting of farm metrics to their customers and ultimately to TSC’s retail KPI’s, a win-win,” said Christy Slay, Ph.D., Director, Research at The Sustainability Consortium.
Agrible’s platform brings real-time agronomy to the farm by forecasting agronomics, yields, and nutrient requirements in real-time. Growers can finally get in front of production by making profitable and sustainable decisions at the same time. This better understanding of agronomy promotes the most efficient and profitable ways to grow crops on the farm.
“We call the linking of our real-time agronomics with sustainability systems like the CFT, real-time sustainability- a first in agriculture. Agrible’s platform is the only platform to be able to offer this new science to growers. We are also excited to offer this to more growers for more crops across the world,” said Agrible’s Chief Science Officer, Paul S. Miller, Ph.D.
Adding the Cool Farm Alliance sustainability metrics to Agrible’s predictive analytics and service recommendations including early alert systems for nutrient and disease management helps in the larger commitment to ensure the sustainability of agriculture, globally. Agrible has sustainably sourced 50 million bushels of grain with their platform and is fast approaching 1 million acres, and currently has over 13,000 users across 6 different countries who will benefit from this global partnership.
Agrible’s mission is to analyze and provide agronomic information using science and technology to transform results into globally useful knowledge. We give all agricultural communities the insights, services, and connections to make their decisions easy and sustainable and their operations seamless. Connecting parts of this larger agricultural community to each other through our platform is important to us and is something we do. Join us in our evolution of agriculture.™ Learn more at http://www.agrible.com/.
