Challenge Overview

Farming operations collect thousands of datapoints using farm management systems, financial software, tax statements and complex spreadsheets. Despite the cadence in which this data updates, it paints a full picture of where a farm has been, where it stands today and where it can expect to go in the future.

The 2022 Producer-Led Innovation Challenge presents an opportunity for entrepreneurs, students, technologists, academics and agtech companies to develop a solution that optimizes existing on-farm data, creating a farmer-focused platform that:


Integrates and aggregates already existing data sets to increase accessibility and farmer usage;


Builds a trusted source of accurate data for on-farm operational, financial, and tax usage while also creating actionable insights for current and future farm management.
