farm in late summer

Google Ventures is the leading investor in a $15 million round of funding for the Farmers Business Network, a company that is using big data to show farms large and small how to make the most of their business. Farmers Business Network is the brainchild of Charles Baron, a former program lead of energy innovation and geothermal projects at Google.

For $500 a year farmers can contribute to and access FBN’s giant store of farming data that tells them which products and methods deliver the highest yields for a specific crop in a given location.

Drone generated data will definitely be part of this.
