BASF AgroStart introduces MasterBarter, which has created a blockchain-enabled transaction and payment system that allows farmers to convert future harvest into immediate liquidity for personal expenses.

Yara introduces Boomitra, which runs a soil carbon market where farmers worldwide are able to increase soil carbon and their incomes by generating third-party certified carbon credits, purchased by corporations and governments.

Cubo Agro introduces ICrop, which offers a full-cycle irrigation management platform that provides comprehensive soil, climate, and crop information using data intelligence.

The Yield Lab introduces Agroforte, a credit fintech company connecting small and medium rural producers to the capital market for complete financial inclusion.

Xperiment introduces AgriAcordo, which has developed a B2B ag-input marketplace where ag retailers, cooperatives and ag-input manufacturers trade products with one another strategically.

Barn Investments introduces Agrolend, a fintech start-up that gives small- and medium-sized farmers in Brazil access to loans to incentivize investment in technology and finance the development of their operation.

On the Main Stage

Successful innovators are a critical part of the agtech conversation, and the summit welcomes industry entrepreneurs to the discussion to share their perspectives:

Fabricio Pezente (Traive) explores the potential of agri-fintech for improving farmers’ access to finance, and creating a more connected, streamlined, and transparent value chain.

Jairo Trad (Kilimo) and Israel Talpaz (SeeTree) review what new strategies and technologies are being put forward to support high-value crop growers to meet sustainability and traceability standards.
