About the Unit

About Digital Ag Solutions

Yara aims to be the crop nutrition company for the future and is leading the development of sustainable agriculture and digital tools to contribute to solving global agricultural challenges. We have a worldwide presence with sales teams in ~150 countries and around 17,000 employees. 

Drawing on over a century of crop nutrition experience, Yara established the Digital Farming unit – now Digital Ag Solutions (DAS) – 4 years ago to explore how technology could be used to impact farmer livelihoods and productivity. Today, DAS has built products for smallholder and professional farmers, retailers and other farming ecosystem stakeholders across Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe. 

We are an international team of engineers, scientists, researchers, designers and agronomists working together to achieve Yara’s goal to responsibly feed this world and protect the planet. Join us in building new digital products and services to create value for stakeholders across the agricultural ecosystem. 

About Connect and 3rd Party Channel

Retailers are an essential part of the smallholder farming community. They are mainly shops located in local towns that supply farmers with products (seeds, nutrients, equipment, crop nutrition and protection products, etc.) and services (soil testing, field mapping, nutrition management, etc.). They understand the local context and climate of the region, are familiar with the varied products and brands and already have an existing relationship with farmers. Farmers rely heavily on the retailers for farming advice and to make input purchase decisions, such as what fertilizer or pesticide brand to buy. This relationship holds the key to establishing a strong connection between Yara, retailers and farmers, and to increase Yara brand loyalty amongst the community. By providing value added services to retailers, retailers are in turn empowered to better advise farmers and recommend Yara as an effective solution to the farmers’ needs.
