Open Agriculture Initiative

Opportunities with OpenAg

The Open Agriculture Initiative brings together partners from industry, government, and academia to develop an open source "food tech" research collective for the creation of the global agricultural hardware, software, and data commons. Together we build collaborative tools and open technology platforms for the exploration of future food systems.

As an open-source project, OpenAg relies heavily on our community to co-create the future of agriculture. Future #nerdfarmers are always welcome to collaborate in building, hacking, and innovating food computing tools and platforms on our forum
