NCSA Private Sector Program

 
 

Agrible is happy to announce that we have joined the National Center for Supercomputing Application’s (NCSA) Private Sector Program. What we are doing with Morning Farm Report takes a lot of computing power, and lucky for us we have one of the world’s best super computers right in our backyard. 

As part of the program, we will use the iForge High-Performance Computing system for Morning Farm Report calculations. By leveraging its power, we can perform the grand scale, big-data calculations that our models require and deliver the highest quality results to our customers. 

We've previewed these sort of calculations in our Rainfall Big Data View, the Morning Farm Index feature, and our Yield Engine estimations. iForge will help us simulate the effects of weather on crop growth across the continental US, allowing Morning Farm Report customers to know exactly how their fields compare to the rest of the grain market. 

iForge is enabling us to think about our data in a radically different way and provide new and interesting benefits to our customers. Plus. we get to play with a supercomputer.
