It has been a while since I’ve seen an announcement of a social network designed to connect farmers and the whole agricultural community. But I just found out about AgFuse. Take a look and let me know what you think. Learn more below.
AgFuse is a free social media tool created specifically to connect farmers and the agricultural community with one another. Never before has there been a platform that enables farmers, experts, suppliers and farm organizations to communicate with one another with such effectiveness and ease.
The farming community now has a way to connect, tell their stories, promote useful products, share and network. Farmers and ag professionals can use AgFuse to not just connect with one another, but also to quickly learn the latest farming information, new developments, research, tips and much more.
User profiles include basic information, areas of interest, such as organic farming or livestock. Users can form or join Groups allowing for the discussion of specific topics, such as cover crops and precision technology. The diverse toolset provided by AgFuse allows farmers to increase knowledge in the field, update members and provide instant news through groups.
After graduation from Clemson University in 2005, Founder Pat Rogers went to work on the family farm in South Carolina. It was during an agricultural technology conference that he first envisioned the concept for AgFuse.
AgFuse Founder Pat Rogers explained, “During the conference I realized that the world of agriculture was in desperate need of a way for people to interact with one another in a fast, convenient and intuitive fashion. Like any other industry, agriculture depends on quick access to information for facilitating growth in the 21st Century. We have to move faster and faster in the digital age. That is exactly what is now possible through AgFuse.”
