Key Takeaways

  1. AmplifiedAg introduces the Enterprise Farm Health (EFH) function on its AmpEDGE farm software platform.
  2. The EFH function offers a unified view of an entire farming enterprise, including supply chain data.
  3. The new feature allows for real-time monitoring of environmental, operational, financial, and risk metrics across multiple farm locations.
  4. The EFH aims to simplify complex indoor farming operations, especially for scaling businesses.
  5. The AmpEDGE platform is designed to meet the evolving needs of modern agriculture, particularly as food production moves closer to end consumers.

As vertical farming continues to gain traction, the need for more sophisticated data analytics and management tools has become apparent. While most Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) software platforms focus on single-location analytics, AmplifiedAg, an agtech company, aims to change the game. The company recently announced the release of its Enterprise Farm Health (EFH) function, a feature designed to provide a comprehensive view of an entire farming enterprise, including the inbound and outbound supply chain.

Breaking the Mold

Traditionally, CEA software platforms have been built around the monitoring and analytics of isolated farms. AmplifiedAg’s EFH function, however, breaks this segmented application mold. It assembles and organizes data from every farm in a user’s network, across all site locations, facilities, and farm environments, including container farms, vertical farms, and greenhouses.

Real-Time Monitoring and Reporting

One of the most significant advantages of the EFH function is its real-time monitoring capabilities. Users can access consolidated environmental, operational, financial, and risk reporting, providing a holistic view of the health of an entire organization. From the enterprise viewpoint, the user can narrow down to a specific farm facility, site location, or even an individual farm unit, gaining control over all associated functions and data analytics.

A Critical Component for Scaling Businesses

Don Taylor, CEO and founder of AmplifiedAg emphasized the EFH function’s importance, especially for scaling indoor farming operations. “Indoor farming has a complex set of requirements and operations, and the EFH enables the farmer to track and report on the global breadth of an organization for complete agricultural and agribusiness management,” Taylor said.

Meeting the Evolving Needs of Modern Agriculture

The AmpEDGE platform, which houses the EFH function, is positioned to assist the evolving needs of modern agriculture. As the need to move food production closer to the end consumer increases, the platform’s multi-farm, multi-site management capabilities become increasingly relevant. “We’re seeing more and more farmers diversifying their operations by blending existing greenhouse production with vertical farming to add meaningful capacity to their business,” Taylor added.
