Jadwiga Jaskot

As technology advances, digitization is becoming a key element in the development of most economic sectors. In recent years, digitization in the agribusiness sector has attracted increasing attention, opening up new opportunities for farmers, food producers and the entire supply chain.

Agribusiness encompasses a variety of industries, each with a number of distinct processes. For this reason, it contains a wide range of areas that can be managed through computer applications. Here are some of them:

Knowledge base

1. Crop management:

  • Crop calendar, determining optimal dates for planting, harvesting and other important activities.
  • Monitoring of weather conditions and weather forecast information.

2. Inventory and stock management:

  • Recording of deliveries, consumption and inventory levels.
  • Notifications of replenishment needs.

3. Agricultural planning:

  • Crop rotation planning tools, which can improve soil health.
  • Analysis of yield and productivity data over years.

4. Financial management:

  • Track production costs, sales and other financial aspects of the farm.
  • Generating financial reports.

5. IoT (Internet of Things) technologies:

  • Use of sensors to monitor soil moisture, temperature, water levels, etc.
  • Automatic irrigation control based on sensor data.

6. Plant and animal health monitoring:

  • Disease and pest tracking.
  • Photo-based disease identification systems.

7. Animal production planning and monitoring:

  • Herd management: recording animal data, feeding, breeding.
  • Disease incidence control and vaccination.

8. Education and counseling:

  • Access to information and advice on new technologies, market trends, etc.
  • Advice on optimizing agricultural processes.

9. Reporting and analysis:

  • Creation of reports and analysis based on collected data.
  • Monitoring the effectiveness of various activities and processes.

10. Integration with government systems:

  • Facilitate completion of documents and forms required by government agencies.
  • Updates on changes in regulations and support programs.

11. Mobility support:

  • Mobile application to access data and functions from anywhere.

12. Data security:

  • Ensuring secure storage of data, especially sensitive financial information.

The technological answer to these diverse needs can be a low code system such as INTENSE Platform. Our agribusiness customers have chosen to use INTENSE Platform because:

  • It enables rapid implementation of solutions, without the need for deep programming. This makes it possible to implement innovative solutions in agribusiness, such as crop monitoring systems, inventory management or production process tracking;

  • enables management of logistics, harvest planning, monitoring of crop conditions, where automation of these agribusiness processes can significantly improve operational efficiency;

  • in agricultural operations, there are often some IT systems already in place, such as warehouse management systems, soil monitoring systems or tools for analyzing meteorological data. INTENSE Platform integrates these systems which will contribute to better data collection and use;

  • enables tracking of the supply chain, which is important in the context of food safety, as well as in the need to locate the source of potential problems;

  • in agribusiness, workforce mobility is vital. INTENSE Platform can be easily adapted to a variety of mobile devices, allowing employees to access important information even in the field;

  • facilitates the creation of data analytics to better understand agribusiness processes and make more informed decisions.

The use of INTENSE Platform can therefore bring many benefits to an agribusiness enterprise, streamlining processes, increasing flexibility and enabling faster adaptation to dynamic market conditions.

Digitalization will also expand in individual agriculture business, shaping its future and enabling sustainable development. However, the implementation of digital technologies requires investment in modern equipment and training, which can be a barrier for smaller farms. That's why it's worth keeping an eye on the subsidy programs proposed by the Agency for Restructuring and Modernization of Agriculture to prepare for agriculture 4.0.
