We at Yara are part of a global network, collaborating to profitably and responsibly solve some of the world's key challenges - resource scarcity, food insecurity and environmental change.

About the Unit

There are more than 500 million smallholder farms globally. 2.5 billion people depend on Smallholder Communities for their food and livelihoods. Smallholder regions are characterized by low living standards, high rates of illiteracy and low agricultural productivity. Yara's mission is "Responsibly Feed the World and Protect the Planet". Key to achieving this is enabling thriving Smallholder Communities.

In 2017, Yara created the business unit, Digital Farming. At Yara Digital Farming, we are building solutions for farming communities, constructing hardware and sensors, crunching satellite data, applying artificial intelligence, and turning research results into services, products and solutions, all aimed at achieving this mission.

Our team is made up of designers, software engineers, hardware developers, data scientists, services and solution managers and product owners. Digital Farming is a strategic priority within Yara. Each year we significantly grow our global Digital Farming team and country coverage. With hubs in Europe, Latin America, Asia and North America, Yara Digital Farming is shaping the future of farming by building new digital solutions solving critical problems within agriculture.
