See How We're Innovating Around The World
Cargill leverages these new tools to continue to enhance our risk management capabilities that directly benefit our customers and manages our supply chains in a more efficient manner.
Bumper is a free, U.S.-based mobile app that helps farmers save time, stay informed and make smart grain and oilseed marketing decisions.
With Bumper, farmers can quickly and easily get all the information they need — grain and oilseed futures prices, local weather updates and market news — all in one place. The data collected from the Bumper app will help Cargill learn more about farmer interests, what content they like and share, and what future mobile app engagement might be like. To date, Bumper has close to 6,000 active users.
This project is expected to reduce the environmental impact of row crop irrigation in Nebraska and provide a scalable irrigation solution for farmers across the U.S. More than 50 percent of water used in U.S. beef production is dedicated to irrigating the row crops that become feed for cattle.
By putting first-of-its-kind, cost-effective technology in the hands of farmers, the amount of water needed for row crop irrigation is greatly reduced.
The potential to increase brand preference, turkey sales and market share, led to piloting a digital way to show consumers where their turkey was raised and the family who raised it.
The pilot for traceable Honeysuckle White® brand turkeys uses a first-to-market blockchain-based solution. Blockchain models build a trusted, transparent food chain that integrate key stakeholders into the supply chain and create a distributed ledger with immutable records. The technology also reduces the risk of fraud or human error, and cryptography within the network ensures security, authentication and integrity of transactions.
Lately, plant workers have had some help from a new co-worker: a remote-controlled robot. The robot will now do all the cattle driving, while employees safely control it from a catwalk. While fine-tuning the technology, this type of innovation could very well be replicated at other Cargill locations, both beef and beyond.
This project positions Cargill as a key contributor to open platforms for digital supply chains, including blockchain, as we continue to make significant engineering contributions to Sawtooth platform development and other open technologies.
Cargill's Enablon Event Management application is Cargill's single, common incident management system, a powerful tool that will help us reach zero harm so our people and our communities can continue to thrive.
Cargill invested in the Cainthus platform to help dairy farmers optimize their operations and earn more per animal. The Cainthus platform augments the manual process of observation, providing more precise, timely and efficient animal monitoring.
This partnership will help farmers improve production efficiency and farm profitability. We are working together to build a digital ecosystem that combines Cargill's scale with the technical skills and capabilities of Agriness to address challenges at the farm level.
The Poultry Enteligen platform connects the supply chain, allowing for powerful analysis using machine learning models. The first offering, PE Broiler, includes digital data collection and visualization in a mobile application with real-time live production predictions, a platform for communication between growers and technical service personnel, and technical service visit planning. Launched in Brazil in 2018, plans are underway to expand globally in 2019.
In the Ghanian market, the combination of mobile technologies has never been used before and is driving sector transformation. These systems improve trust and our relationship with farmers and our customers. Cargill is implementing a similar system in Ivory Coast.
As the iQuatic™ platform records more data, the models learn more about the animal operations to help improve decision-making. As a result, these models help inform decisions that improve harvest results, decrease input costs and run operations more efficiently.
Often from multiple software programs, DE combines all inputs into one comprehensive system, allowing farmers to make precise decisions on feed and farm management practices.
Initially, ADM, Bunge, Cargill and LDC are focused on technologies to automate the grain and oilseed post-trade execution processes, as they represent a highly manual and costly part of the supply chain, with the industry spending significant amounts of money every year moving documents around the globe.
The venture intends to provide grain marketing decision support, e-commerce and account management software for North American farmers. This includes the development of digital tools designed to help farmers across the U.S. and Canada consolidate information on production economics and grain marketing activities into a single digital platform, at no cost to them.
Accelerators are one way that Cargill creates space for innovation more effectively than ad-hoc individual networking and without the cost to create and manage a venture fund.
