Our digital hubs

Digital Hubs are centers of gravity for our efforts.

Our Digital Farming team is centered around four Digital Hubs as competence centers that host our new digital solution teams. The hubs are located in Germany, Brazil, USA and Singapore.

We chose the locations combining proximity to our core markets and to the digital talent, and allowing a global yet tailored innovation.

Our digital hubs are designed as creative spaces fostering innovation and entrepreneurship.

Yara Digital Hubs 2018

Berlin is the largest of our hubs, with six of Yara's digital farming products - such as Atfarm and YaraIrix - being developed and maintained by the teams here.

The Berlin hub focuses on digital design and research, product management, agronomy, data science and hardware operations and development.

This European hub also has satellite teams in Varna (Bulgaria), Pocklington (UK) and Oslo (Norway).

Singapore's renowned start-up culture and geographical advantage serve as backdrop to our culturally-diverse Singapore hub where we focus on providing solutions for smallholder farmers.

The team consists of AgTech research scientists, software engineers and designers, as well as skilled workers within product management, agronomy, data science and hardware operations and development.

FarmWeather, the first hyperlocal weather app used by farmers across different countries, was developed here.

The São Paulo hub sits together with the Yara Brazil office and is strategically chosen to be close to our nearby research centers, like the Sumaré plant.

Our São Paulo team is focused on developing digital farming experiences for both professional and smallholder markets. We have a good distribution of skills - from marketing and commercialization, partnerships team, business experts and agronomists, designers (from the research side up to interface), as well as tech engineers.
