Our Take on Software in the AgTech Industry

At Atomic, we balance consultation with craft. We’ll be your guide, helping you make smart decisions that work for your business. Based on what we’ve seen in AgTech, here are three challenges waiting to be solved by custom software.

Profitability Improvements with Precision Agriculture

It's not just about yield—it’s also about profitability. Custom software tools can help growers gain insights to shepherd resources where they’re most impactful. Imaging technology can bring the right interventions at the right time all the way down to a single plant or animal.

Reducing Risk with Natural Resource Management

AgTech needs to think long term. Controlling agriculture environments with software can help agriculturalists manage resources like light, water, soil, and fertilizer. This makes the season more efficient and also maintains resource reserves needed down the line. 

Addressing Labor Shortages through Automation and Robotics

Labor shortage is top-of-mind for anyone in the agriculture space. Automated equipment, satellite imagery, location tracking and IoT sensors can reduce manual labor needs and allow on-hand labor to provide more value.
“We’re farmers here, and when [people] ask why we decided to go with Atomic Object, I tell them that I walked into the office, and we noticed the sign they had hanging in the lobby area, and it said, 'We give a shit.' I don’t want to say that’s the only reason you won the project, but it was big.”

AgTech Software Decision Guide

Agriculture Industry leaders face a decision when it comes to software: should they build it or buy it?

Off-the-shelf solutions may almost fit your needs. Should you spend more for custom AgTech software bespoke to your operation?

There are pros and cons to both approaches. But how do you weigh them in your particular case? At the end of the day, the decision comes down to cost and control. 

Our free guide for AgTech leaders helps them weigh the benefits and costs of each decision.

Once you’ve opted to custom-build software, find the platform and tech stack that best suit your organization’s AgTech needs. Atomic Object has built more than 250 custom software products for growers, AgTech startups, heavy machinery manufacturers, irrigation utilities, and other types of companies.
