Todd Robran on fintech, farmers and data as a differentiator

Reading Time: < 1 minute

From food production to R&D heavy plant science and animal health, Agbioscience is a capital-intensive business. This week, we are joined by Growers Edge Chief Commercial Officer, Todd Robran, to talk reducing risk for farmers, partnerships with ag retailers and how models are shifting to reward growers with lower rates for more productivity.

Todd also gets into data as a differentiator when it comes to lending and risk management, the current challenges in the agbisocience landscape – from tight commodity markets to interest rates – and how Growers Edge is navigating those waters. He also talks backing innovation for farmer confidence to drive efficient decision-making and incentivize farmers alongside ag retailers.

As experts in fintech, how does Growers Edge see themselves when it comes to the adoption of new and emerging technologies? Todd talks about where the company has been, where it’s headed and how he sees the next chapter of agtech coming to fruition.
