Iowa Corn Promotion Board® steps up as first SHP Data Supporter
At the core of SHP’s mission is our ability to create, collect, and integrate data. This is no easy task. We collect at least 165 disparate variables from our partner farms. Those data come from a wide range of sources without any natural integration so we manually pull together this information. Adding our growing number of Associate sites to the mix means we are awash in data. The need to develop automated integration is necessary to allow SHP to scale to include more farmers, more practices, more acres. However, there is not an “off the shelf” solution and the construction of such a system is necessary.
