Solutions for Food Concerns in 2030, 2050, and Beyond

By the year 2050, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the world population will have grown from its current level of 7.5 billion to over 10 billion people. Growers must adopt new methods and technology if they are to provide food security. AGERpoint’s mission is to give growers data tools they can use to ensure that they can meet the demand for the crops that grow on trees, vines, and bushes.

Growers with access to better information about their crops have a competitive advantage.

Modern tools for collecting and analyzing data about a grove, orchard or vineyard can be prohibitively expensive, particularly for small and mid-sized producers. AGERpoint™ can help growers of all sizes by providing these vital information services at a reasonable price while providing scheduling and management tools to keep operations running smoothly from the field to the market.

How we do it:

AGERpoint™ is an analytics company specializing in precision agriculture services for permanent crops.
