Smart Agriculture with David Potere


Agriculture infrastructure allows plants such as corn, soy, and wheat to move from large scale farms to consumers all around the world. The relevant players in the agricultural infrastructure includes growers, shippers, and planners. These individuals need new technology to interact more efficiently. 

Growers need to be able to connect more smoothly with buyers. Farmers need better management of their carbon credits. Microbial technology can allow plants to be better shielded from tough conditions. 

Agricultural health, transport, commerce, and logistics are all problems that Indigo Agriculture is focused on solving. David Potere is head of geoinnovation at Indigo, and joins the show to talk about the problems the company is solving and the engineering practices at Indigo.
