    Description

    There’s $1 Billion Buried in Illinois Farmland. The Next Frontier of AgTech Will Help You Find It.

    Are you getting fair market value for your farmland? There’s a good chance the answer is no. It’s estimated that Illinois landowners left as much as $1 billion in rent on the table in 2017, simply because they haven’t had an easy way to understand the true value of their land. Advancements in AgTech have introduced the power of equipment automation and Big Data to make farmers more productive than ever—but landowners have been left behind. Join seasoned AgTech entrepreneur Corbett Kull, Founder and CEO of Tillable, as he explains how the trajectory of technology in agriculture over the past 10 years has brought us, finally, to digital marketplaces that benefit both landowners and great growers.
