itk is a knowledge integrator committed to developing easyto- use, efficient and useful decision-making tools that connect scientific research with production agriculture and allied industries to drive value to farmers and all players of the food system value chain. Concretely, itk develops process driven AI models applied to crop and animal production. Those models are imbedded in web applications and target 1) growers/ breeders and their consultants to help them make tactical and strategic decisions on their daily practices in order to maximize their return on investment while gaining time, 2) insurances to predict yield volatility and help them anticipate compensations and 3) food processing companies to secure their supplies and 4) traders to predict yield volatility and help them manage their risk.
