Avocados are trending. Sales have grown tremendously over the past decade due to factors such as cuisine trends (avocado toast) and diet crazes (Paleo and KETO diets). But it is not merely fads that drive sales.
The avocado has recently become a vital staple of the North American diet. Thousands of restaurants and Tuesday-night-taco-dinners rely on the creamy fruit to supply flavor and nutrients. The forecast clearly demonstrates that sales will only grow.
Avocado orchards and farms are hard pressed to output a consistent, quality product. However, production rates depend heavily upon an array of factors, ranging anywhere from pruning, planting, and watering practices, to climate change and disease exposure. We account for uncertainty to predict future outcomes and asses the underlying risks in agricultural operations of all sizes.
Mind the Grow offers CadoCast, a software solution that analyzes the factors influencing Avocado Agribusiness. CadoCast utilizes existing data and models built on ecological and biological principles to create simulations of future production trends. By analyzing these trends and comparing them with operation procedures, CadoCast guides better business practice through data-driven decision making.
Consultations function across the industry, addressing opportunities from tree to table. We help to locate issues in operation practices and make recommendations to address the consequences of factors such as:
- Intercropping strategies.
- Cost analysis of pest and disease control.
- Labor contracting and employee resource allocation.
- Plant nutrition and irrigation.
Unpredictability is inevitable. Overcome difficulties on-the-farm and in-the-market by trying out Mind the Grow’s CadoCast dashboard-capable solution, making it easy to play what-if with your farming operation. Our proprietary models enable rapid assessments of business growth-strategies, development, and long-term sustainability.
