Entrepreneurs active in the agricultural sector spend more and more of their time registering and publishing all kinds of data, as the government, certification bodies, banks, clients, the retail sector and consumers all want to have more insight into how safe and sustainable their food is.
The majority of this agriculture-related data is still paper-based, spread over different systems and difficult to exchange between the people who want to access it. This is why digitising agricultural business data is an important item on the agenda. With FarmDigital, we can respond to these developments.
FarmDigital is an action research programme which is currently working towards a situation in which data only needs to be entered once and can be shared easily. It aims to achieve this goal by standardising data and developing and implementing an independent, digital platform for people to use.
