We stand behind sustainability
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do at The Seam. Our technology provides key information to help ensure your land remains healthy and viable. As we continue to focus on traceability and transparency in the supply chain, we’re committed to doing business with those who practice responsible farming.
What is sustainable agriculture?
Essentially, it is the ability to produce enough food and agricultural products to meet present needs without endangering the environment, public health or economic profitability. As the population grows, so does the demand for food and resources, and farmers must find ways to increase production rates while remaining environmentally conscious. If food and agricultural products are not produced with care, future generations of crops are at risk. The idea behind sustainable farming is to minimize one’s environmental footprint and enforce good stewardship of the land and natural resources.
Where can you make a change?
To accomplish such a lofty goal, leaders in agriculture need to continue developing more ecological solutions in production and trade. Unlike industrialized farming, sustainable farms utilize methods such as crop rotation, pasture-raised livestock and conservative tilling to assure that the environment is protected, and the process is as natural as possible.
There are already a number of innovative solutions in agtech that enforce sustainable farming. From evaluating soil health to managing water infrastructure, technology provides tools that help maintain healthy and environmentally friendly yields with more precision and efficiency. Drones and other equipment are now able to conduct data analyses, and GPS-enabled tractors help plant crops more efficiently. Technology allows farmers to streamline their processes and care for the environment during production.
The goal of sustainable agriculture is simply to care for the environment, facilitate economic profitability, and create social and communal equity. Small decisions that you make today lead to large improvements in farming practices, and technology forges the undiscovered path that leads to worldwide solutions. While the journey is still in its adolescence, developments in agritech are already cultivating better crops and building a more sustainable future.
How we’re making a difference
At The Seam, we believe there’s nothing more critical to the future of our industry than protecting the environment. Future generations are counting on us to leave them a world that flourishes. Even now, we need to ensure that next year’s harvest will be as viable as this one.
By embracing technology in the field, we focus on paving the way for traders and consumers to embrace technology in the supply chain as well, creating not only sustainable agriculture, but also a sustainable economy. Farm management software, yield mapping, digital markets and data solutions like blockchain contribute to a sustainable future by offering both farmers and consumers efficiency, traceability and immutability.
The Seam has already seen tremendous success for users in the cotton and peanut industries, and we are currently working to provide the same high standards in other agricultural industries worldwide.
