技术触动了我们生活的每一部分。它改变了我们沟通,旅行和工作的方式。但很多人可能不会意识到技术改变食物种植的方式。

在目前的人口增长率下,农民需要在2050年之前喂养约10亿人口。喂养世界不断增长的人口 - 并做得这么可持续 - 意味着帮助种植者使用更少的资源生产更多的食物,这并不容易完成。它将采取创新和大胆的技术投资。

Nutrien是一家由目的驱动的公司。我们正在使用技术来解决农业的主要挑战。

Nutrien是一家农业公司。这就是我们所做的。但在过去的几十年中,农业可持续和有效地从一个大拖拉机问题到大数据问题,营养不良致力于成为解决方案的重要组成部分。这就是为什么我们正如我们作为一个农业领袖所在的技术领导者,我们总是在寻找最优秀最明亮的技术人才。技术从矿井的底部到筒仓的顶部,触动了Nutrien的每一部分。

通过我们的NextGen Potash计划,我们利用自动采矿和远程系统,这有助于通过将运营商摆脱危害的方式增加我们地下矿井的安全性和效率。使用相机,通信系统和尖端技术的组合,操作员实时概述整个矿业系统,可以远程导航巨大的地下机。技术也让我们保持更好地与我们的同事的地下联系,并帮助我们更准确地确定异常的地面条件并计划和预测。

We’ve also implemented遥控推土机技术在我们的上述磷矿矿山之一,允许工人安全地在室内控制站中安全地从几千英尺远离距离。操作员可以完全控制机器,而不会暴露在灰尘,噪音,振动或其他危险中,这也导致生产率提高。

Above ground, we provide direct support to our wholesale customers through Nutrien Experience — a new digital platform that allows our nitrogen, phosphate and potash wholesale customers to access critical information on any device, anytime, anywhere. Taking a human-centric approach to design, we developed the platform by engaging with our customers right from the start, proactively seeking their feedback, listening to their needs and turning their suggestions into reality.

这有助于确保我们的努力集中并针对最有利的东西量身定制。该平台使客户能够查看他们的购买和承诺,检查其帐户状态,立即访问其订单和出货量的状态,搜索并查看RailCars的传递状态等。Nutrien体验之旅刚刚开始,我们有一些重要的运动计划,将把平台带到一个全新的水平。

近年来,您可能听说过我们的行业领先Nutrien AG Solutions数字枢纽, a one-stop shop that helps growers manage their farming operations and do business with us. Through the Hub, growers can access ag-focused local weather stories, field-level insights (in the United States) and transactional services that are comprehensive, intuitive and flexible — from the kitchen table, the truck or the field.

The Hub’s field planning tool, in particular, is a game changer for farmers: It takes product information, sample data, weather history, pricing information and manufacturer programs into account and provides farmers and their Nutrien Ag Solutions crop consultants with a forum to build, update and execute a season plan for each individual field. The plans also integrate with our ordering and inventory systems to ensure seamless and timely delivery and application of products.

The Hub is a groundbreaking innovation in the digital ag space, and our Digital Product Development Team is constantly developing new features and functions that build on this foundation, to help eliminate both paperwork and guesswork for our retail customers. Meanwhile, similar digital agriculture journeys are underway for Nutrien Ag Solutions customers in Australia and Latin America.

Nutrien是一个农民第一组织。我们所做的一切都旨在实现和装备养活未来的种植者。

世界上有巨大的挑战和Nutrienis stepping up to find the solutions and investing in technology to make our industry more efficient, safe and sustainable. The future of tech really isn’t confined to Silicon Valley, and if you’re looking for a purpose-driven career, my hope is that you’ll consider agriculture.
