We can increase yield on less productive farm land where we see huge yield gaps between current production levels and those possible with improved production practices, mechanization and precision farming. Combined with for instance our innovative sprayers being able to achieve more yield with less crop protection, to provide each plant what it needs, our business contributes to a brilliant simple solution in helping farmers to feed the world in a sustainable manner.
Agrifac develops machines that provide every plant exactly what it needs. As the first manufacturer, Agrifac is now able to nurture exactly that plant that needs treatment, based on plot maps. We call this “Every drop hits the right spot.” We are heading towards 50% more revenue with 50% less crop protection. This development means that there will be a change in agriculture. The future farmer goes back to personal inspection of each plant. All kinds of data e.g. satellites and sensors make this possible. For those farmers combining their own knowledge and experience with the available data, the possibilities are endless. With this new technology, available data and common sense, together we can make the world a little more beautiful. The future of agriculture has begun, with NEED Farming, powered by Agrifac!
We need land to grow food, healthy soils to nourish crops and livestock, clean water on farms and farmers to make it all happen. Every farmer and contractor has its own daily challenge to achieve the highest possible return at the lowest cost. On a more global level, we know there is sufficient capacity to produce enough food to feed everyone adequately, despite the fact that the world population is predicted to increase to 9 billion by 2050. Instead of cultivating more and more land, we should be able to increase food productivity on existing farmland while at the same time lowering our footprint.
That’s exactly the business that Agrifac is in! We want to contribute to the higher food need in a sustainable, brilliant simple way.
