The SAS Vision for Agtech

Why choose SAS® for agriculture analytics?

SAS helps leaders in agriculture, animal health and consumer goods companies transform data into valuable insights for better decisions. We understand what’s at stake for your business and our food supply. And we deliver innovative agtech solutions you can trust to improve the way you discover, develop, manufacture and commercialize new products and technologies.

Optimization where it matters

As food production changes globally, the need to holistically approach planning and forecasting can turn great challenges into strategic opportunities.

SAS – rooted in agriculture

Born at North Carolina State University (NCSU), where the company's first project was analyzing crop yield data, SAS is partnering with NCSU and Microsoft to predict plant disease and tackle food recalls.

Crop science meets data science

SAS is partnering with Boragen, a world-leading boron-based discovery platform company, to use AI-powered research to protect crops and boost food production to keep pace with global population growth.

How SAS Delivers Agriculture Analytics

Data volumes in the agriculture industry are growing exponentially. IoT devices that collect data from connected farm equipment – smart tractors, drones, etc. – are becoming more common. Growers and agriculture leaders are recognizing the potential for uncovering breakthroughs – on soil health, plant genomics, livestock management and faster development of new technologies – hidden in big data. Agriculture analytics from SAS, with embedded AI, helps you extract valuable insights that can lead to better plant and animal health, crop yields, sustainable practices and more.

Integrate transparency throughout the food supply chain.

Understand the impact and performance of sustainability initiatives.

The Challenge for Agriculture

More efficient food production requires farmers and agriculture leaders to undergo a digital transformation, embracing AI, IoT, big data and analytic technologies to produce insights that enable sound, data-driven decisions. The power of SAS analytics works across the entire agriculture industry, and we can help you tackle problems ranging from yield optimization on the farm to supply chain optimization for consumer goods companies.

Customer Success

Look Who's Working Smarter With SAS®

Gavilon reduces workloads and operational costs by migrating to the SAS® Cloud on Azure.

"A comprehensive understanding of risk is critical for monitoring and managing our exposure during these very volatile times. To serve our stakeholders, we need to manage large volumes of data and risk calculations in real time, as well as adapt to new use cases over time. We've had a long collaborative partnership with SAS. To position ourselves for the future and reduce our workload and operational costs, we migrated to the SAS Cloud on Azure. It’s a no-brainer for Gavilon to make the switch – we are transitioning support, server upgrades and application monitoring to SAS, and we can take advantage of new features and enhancements in SAS Viya."
