The Agricultural Data Coalition's (ADC) mission is to help farmers better control and manage their electronic data and promote innovation and progress in the agricultural marketplace. The goal of ADC is a create a neutral, independent, farmer-centric data repository where farmers can securely store and control the information collected every day in the fields by their tractors, harvesters, aerial imaging and other devices. Over time, that data can then be scrubbed, synced, and transmitted in an efficient and uniform way to third parties — whether they be researchers, crop insurance agents, government officials, farm managers, input providers, or anyone else the farmer chooses. The ADC will provide a privacy-ensured way for farmers to access markets; increase yields and profitability; and ensure unrestricted access to their data, services and products.
