Oct 24, 2018AGTools launches online tool that provides real-time data to growers
AGTools Inc. has created a new online tool enabling the agriculture industry to improve decision making, reduce waste and increase revenue. The tool is the first of its kind in the agriculture industry designed to help farmers by providing hard data in real time to food supply chain stakeholders, helping to improve their bottom line.
The agriculture industry is fast-paced and farmers work long days. Any one of a series of variables can cause drastic swings in farm profit. This includes market crop pricing, energy pricing, climate changes, currency swings and much more. AGTools brings change to this vital industry, with an objective of bringing the data in a practical, effective manner directly to the farmer and all members of the food supply chain.
Lack of real-time data impacts the agriculture industry and is part of the cause of more than $74 billion dollars of food waste per year in the U.S. and more than $350 billion worldwide from harvest to distribution centers. AGTools provides real-time algorithm data by gathering and mining of over 513 commodities of fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and ornamentals to reduce waste and increase profitability. The online tool helps those in the industry to better determine when to plant, harvest, ship and buy.
