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 Yara AgTech (YAT) – 5 years ago to explore how technology could be used to impact farmer livelihoods and productivity.
