Simplifying farm management for farmers: Agroptima’s mission is clearly defined! To make it easier for users to enter details of their operations, the mobile application publisher provides the GEVES database of seeds certified for use in France on API-AGRO.
The creation of crop rotations, fertilisation, CAP declarations or traceability and monitoring of production costs, field management is a time-consuming activity for farmers. Thanks to its mobile application and its website, Agroptima makes it possible to simplify this rather tedious management. On the application, farmers can record directly, in a private account, all their operations, straight from their phone. To optimise data entry, the application provides product databases that enable them to record their interventions in real time, in the field, by directly selecting the data to be integrated.
Given this background, access and use of approved product datasets is a differentiator and a business challenge for the company in the competitive marketplace for field management solutions.
“The challenge is to locate reliable databases from multiple sources and then integrate them into our system”
— says Hugo Compas, director of Agroptima France.
The Agroptima farm management solution now uses the GEVES certified seed database directly on the API-AGRO platform. This facilitates inputs from farmers but also the shared codification of this data favours its reuse for sharing or connection to decision support tools using the same references.
By subscribing to the API-AGRO platform, Agroptima has found an accessible and secure tool.
“API-AGRO exposes varied, sourced datasets and makes available those offers which are useful and adapted to Agroptima’s activities. This not only saves significant time for our teams but also makes it easier to evaluate the quality and reliability of the data,” says Hugo Compas. A desire for simplification and integration that meets Agroptima’s requirement for innovation and competitiveness!
