The challenge is daunting: Within 40 years, farmers across the world will need to double production and do it with fewer resources - especially water - to feed, clothe and provide energy for a global population of 9 billion souls.
“Farmers will need to produce as much food, feed and fiber during the first half of this century as has been produced over the last 100 centuries combined to meet the growing demand,” says Greg Hart, John Deere sales manager for the U.S. Western Region.
“We believe integrated solutions and specifically precision technology and data enabled agriculture are key to conserving resources and producing more food and agriculture for the world.” - Cory Reed, John Deere senior vice president, Intelligent Solutions Group2
John Deere was a technical innovator and the company he founded is continually pioneering the application of technology. Today that means GPS Driven Tractors, Mobile Operations Center solutions (like air traffic control for farming operations), Smart Farming & Crowd Source Agriculture enabled by Big Data and Internet of Things Solutions, and a Monster Factory interesting enough to be the subject of a documentary.
Aquent IT Solutions has partnered with John Deere for over 25 years on front and back end application development projects. We have been recognized as a Partner Level Supplier for 15 consecutive years and are the only IT supplier to win 15 Year Hall of Fame status. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/aquent-it-solutions-recognized-by-john-deere-with-highest-supplier-rating-300045294.html
