Our mission

Wageningen Agricultural Monitoring supports your trading decisions by providing you with insights in expected yields of agricultural products, at every stage of the growing season, in every location of the world.

Your challenge

As a consequence of increased weather variability and climate uncertainty harvests of agricultural produce are also becoming more uncertain. Just like a weather forecast, a yield forecast helps you to reduce your risks to unexpected over- or undersupply of your product, already early on in the growing season.  For example, a sudden increase of supply of agricultural produce by your farmers requires you to sell a lot of produce quickly at a lower price. Alternatively, a sudden decrease in supply might force you to buy produce from elsewhere at higher prices with a need to pay for higher transport causes. A forecast of expected yields prepares you for these eventualities, and allows you to take timely actions.

Oogstvoorspelling van zetmeel aardappelen
