Agricultural Technology Platforms and Software to Manage Risks

Technology exists to solve agricultural challenges and manage business risks, yet the landscape of available options can be confusing and overwhelming.  Which technology solution or software application is right for my farm?  Is the cost worth the investment?  How much time and management will I need to invest to see a return on my time or money?  Join us to gather insight into these questions through a series of 12 educational workshops featuring experienced farmers, software developers, agricultural technology companies, and agricultural service providers.  Workshops will provide risk management solutions to help address:

  • legal risk (farmland access and tenure tools)
  • production risk (field and yield tracking systems)
  • financial risk (record-keeping, sales integration, and enterprise analysis)
  • marketing risk (online sales and customer management systems)

Workshops will feature software demonstrations by leading technology platforms alongside local farmers providing user testimonials and 1:1 advising. Technology risk management decision-making tools, workshop recordings, and a fact sheet series with producer case studies will be posted here as the series unfolds. 

Register Here for the workshops.  All workshops are free, but registration is required.
