Agrimetrics is an Agri-Tech Centre of Excellence: a collaboration between Government, academia and industry to unlock the value in data generated across the agrifood sector. Agrimetrics’ data platform and Field Explorer suite of API products allow disparate data to be connected and converted into insights, trends and predictions that are not evident when viewed in isolation. Agrimetrics has a firm foundation in data science, smart analytics and bioinformatics expertise, and, through its founders, which include the University of Reading, research in soils, crops, livestock, food and sustainability.
The Univesity's Richard Tiffin, Agrimetrics’ Chief Scientific Officer, says: “The University of Reading has long been at the forefront of research that will help us to build a more sustainable and resilient food system. Agrimetrics provides a vehicle to put that research into practice so that it has a real impact. For example we can take expertise in earth observation and combine this expertise in crop and livestock production to give farmers digital tools which help them to improve their productivity.”
David Flanders, Agrimetrics CEO says: “We are delighted to be selected as one of the Connect TVT’s Game Changers in the Thames Valley region for 2018. Technology and data are at the heart of everything we do and with that comes change. As technology evolves so do our products and we will continue to provide data and tools to businesses, researchers and policy-makers to drive innovation that address the challenges of sustainable food production.”
