Saving natural resources, reducing inputs and drudgery, improving farm performance and traceability: AgriTech start-ups are on the move to meet environmental, economic and societal challenges. Agdatahub's mission is to help them do so so that the growth of digital agriculture benefits farmers and breeders.
Our CONSENT and EXCHANGE services and customised support services have been developed and designed to support agricultural innovation. By giving players back control over the data they exchange and ensuring secure, simplified transactions between identified players.
Our consent modules restore the balance of power between digital service providers and their farming customers. The use of agricultural digital identity also enables them to be sure of the identity of the person connecting, to simplify the collection of information and to strengthen security, and therefore trust.
Our service also simplifies life for farmers and secures the exchange of agricultural data while respecting consent. In this way, AgriTech players are providing an additional service to customers who use their solutions.
The heart of our EXCHANGE service is a catalogue of data offers (by file or by API) to which more than 2,000 subscribers have access.
It also includes pages presenting the companies or structures that have subscribed to the service and thematic pages.
This increases subscribers' visibility and boosts the potential of their presence on the platform tenfold. It also enables them to connect with key players in the agricultural sector and carry out secure transactions. At every stage, the data provider retains control over its circulation.
"For us, the data exchange platform represents the single point of entry to new users of our weather data. Weather is only of interest if it is linked to a use. That's why we want our data to be easily and simply accessible for use in farm management tools. The platform enables us to do this, while keeping a firm grip on the data".

Among our Capdata services, the Data-Agri labelling support is adapted to all digital service providers. Data-Agri is both a label and a charter of 13 principles established by the agricultural profession for greater transparency in contractual relations between digital service providers and farmers.
"Elzeard is a Social and Solidarity Economy company and we wanted our technological solution to be in line with our values: that is to say, respectful of farmers. We chose Capdata's support for Data-Agri certification because Data-Agri raises real technical questions. This enabled us to specify our architecture to meet our contractual commitments."
