ACRE offers layers of insights to help farm operators manage their operations more effectively. We pair this knowledge with analytics—including on crop identification and yield optimization—and with the expertise to implement end-to-end operational improvements, from the field to processing to logistics.
Informing and optimizing farm operations
What we do
We define the most suitable and attractive crop to grow based on soil and climate profile, with long-run revenue projections.
We predict yield and production to optimize harvest and post harvest logistics and identify production-management approaches that will maximize yield and minimize costs.
We assemble the right suite of precision-agriculture tools—including data management, drone and imagery use, and the Internet of Things—to improve yield and your bottom line.
