Stara and ABIMAQ have a partnership on the Farm Collaborative Database (BDCA)

The digital agriculture, as it is known the high technology used on field information, it is now a reality. Different machines and sensors produce information all the time, and combine them for more effective decision-making is a challenge. That is why the BDCA has been created.
The BDCA, an ABIMAQ initiative – Brazilian Machinery and Equipment Industry Association – and agricultural machines industries, aims to gather and consolidate the relevant information to the farmer decision-making in only one place, in a safe and impartial way. With the BDCA information such as positioning, speed, seed population, solid application volume (fertilization), and liquid application volume (spraying) will be shared.
Although the data are stored under the ABIMAQ responsibility, they are exclusively owned by the farmer. The producer is the only one who has the power to release the information to partners whom they believe to be reliable and thus can optimize their business. The machine factory companies can share the information from the generated data partially or totally, in that way providing the demand for farmers to integrate data from different agricultural machines.
The project is being led by seven companies in the agribusiness area, among them the Stara, and is expected to be available to producers in 2020.
