Innovation in the everyday: Using data to create efficiencies in agribusiness

At FWD23, we focused on the ways agribusiness leaders can use the power of data and AI to start generating ROI now.

We explored the challenges of an agriculture industry that has a vast harvest of numbers yet struggles to turn them into value. But we didn’t shout about big tech investments that stretch shrinking budgets. Instead, we looked at how leaders can build on what they already have—using data and AI technologies to automate, optimize, and fuel efficiencies that counteract rising costs.

We call this innovation in the everyday—solutions that are practical, predictable, and provide growth where and when you need it most.
