Nov 1, 2018AGTools launches online tool for growers
AGTools (www.Ag.Tools) has launched a brand-new online tool providing growers with hard data in real time to food supply chain stakeholders, helping to improve their bottom line.
AGTools offers over 40 million real-time and historical records. It is powered by weather.com, a division of IBM, and provides information from over 125,000 weather stations across the USA.
Lack of real-time data impacts the agriculture industry and is part of the cause of over $74 billion dollars of food waste per year in the USA and over $350 billion worldwide from harvest to distribution centers. AGTools provides real-time algorithm data gathering and mining of over 513 commodities of fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, and ornamentals, to reduce waste and increase profitability. The new, user friendly online tool is designed to help growers better determine when to plant, harvest, ship, and buy, to increase their return on investment.
