  6. Crowdsourcing variety performance data to boost performance, variety adoption and farmer empowerment

    SBC: SEEDLLINKED LLC            Topic: 812

    In today's tight agriculture economy, one of the most important decisions a farmer makes throughout the year is what type of seed to plant. Optimum yield, maturity, and disease resistance for a specific environment will secure farm revenue by creating better production and decreased use of inputs. However, in a highly consolidated industry where the top 3 players control 60% of the seed market ...
