Our proprietary machine learning algorithm will work on data collected from on farm sensors, satellite images, weather data, historical data and agronomists’ inputs to predict the farm tonnage output. We will then work with finance providers to get you funding against the predicted yields.
Financial backing can be the difference between your new farm being a roaring success and
seeing you labour on day after day for very little reward. With new and tenant farmers
increasingly struggling to win short-term loans, the UK has seen a staggering 20% decrease
in farms during the last 10 years.
