    Eliminating Silos In Agriculture: How An End-To-End Supply Chain Solution Enables Food Security And Sustainability – By Declan Lafray (IB Times) / March 1, 2024

The importance of food production has been highlighted in recent years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. With food supplies being horrifically low, people started wondering, “What steps can we take to balance supply and demand once and for all?”

    The global farm management software market is anticipated to reach a revenue of $24.24B by the end of 2035, up from a revenue of $3.43B in 2022. That presents a 17.70% growth, setting the stage for precision solutions, such as Produceplan, to shine.
