Empowering Farmers Through Data Analytics: Insights from Stratus Ag Research

As agriculture evolves, so too do the tools and technologies available to farmers. In this digital age, data analytics has emerged as a powerful ally for modern farmers, offering invaluable insights that drive decision-making and improve productivity. Stratus Ag Research, through its extensive surveys of farmers across North America, sheds light on the trends and challenges shaping the adoption of digital and precision tools in agriculture.

Survey Insights For Farmers 

Since 2016, Stratus Ag Research has conducted comprehensive surveys, providing unparalleled insights into the dynamics of modern agriculture. The latest survey data, gathered from 841 commercial crop farmers in the U.S., offers a glimpse into the evolving landscape of agriculture.

Here are five key takeaways from the 2023 survey data:

1. Growing Need for Data Support: Despite the increasing reliance on data analytics, there remains a significant gap in farmers’ understanding and utilization of software platforms. Less than 15% of farmers claim to have a strong grasp of the software they use, highlighting the need for enhanced support and training.

2. Harnessing the Power of Data: Data analytics has become indispensable in modern agriculture, offering farmers unprecedented insights into crop health, weather patterns, and market trends. By analyzing data from sensors, satellites, and machinery, farmers can make informed decisions that optimize planting, irrigation, and pest control practices.

3. Promoting Sustainability: Sustainable farm management is crucial for the long-term viability of agriculture. Through careful planning and resource allocation, farmers can maximize crop growth while minimizing waste. Precision techniques such as planting, irrigation, and pest control not only enhance productivity but also promote environmental sustainability.

4. Empowering Farmers: The integration of data analytics into decision-making processes empowers farmers to take control of their operations. By providing them with the tools and support they need to harness the power of data, we can drive innovation and improve the resilience of the agricultural sector.

5. Stratus Ag Research: A Beacon of Insights: With years of survey data at their disposal, Stratus Ag Research offers unparalleled insights into the challenges and opportunities facing modern farmers. By leveraging their expertise, we can better understand the needs of farmers and tailor our efforts to support their success.


As we look to the future of agriculture, data analytics will continue to play a pivotal role in driving innovation and sustainability. By empowering farmers with the tools and knowledge they need to harness the power of data, we can build a more resilient and productive agricultural sector for generations to come. Stratus Ag Research’s ongoing surveys provide invaluable insights that guide our efforts to support and empower farmers in this digital age.
