AgGateway welcomes Epik Systems, a product incubation service provider focused on building sustainability solutions. Epik is particularly interested in AgGateway’s ADAPT, an open-source project that enables interoperability between different agriculture software and hardware applications.
“Without ADAPT, we would have to develop an innumerable number of interfaces to collect the data we need, not only for efficient operations and yield management but also for effective sustainability and carbon management,” said Tim O’Neal, Epik co-founder and CEO.
Epik is developing solutions for greenhouse gas (GHG) measurement, reporting and mitigation at the farm level. There is a requirement for enhanced data acquisition and AI modeling across land preparation, fertilization, protection, planting, irrigation, harvesting, measurement/scouting, post-processing, transport and carbon sequestration.
“We want to help extend the ADAPT data model to support GHG management,” said Kevin Hannah, Epik vice-president of product marketing & strategy. “To this end, the next step will be to explore the potential of a new GHG Management Working Group with the AgGateway community.”
For the farmer, any solution for both farm and carbon management requires data. The acquisition and value generation from that data, for them, must be as near effortless as possible. Epik is using ADAPT to do just that.
Epik works with both startups and established companies with initiatives exploring new technologies. It provides AI, Blockchain, and Edge technology skills to accelerate software development, alongside domain expertise to help design, deploy and deliver products.
