Targeting crop characteristics
Americas Quality Crop Network, a non-profit scientific corporation, launched www.americrop.com to help growers preserve crop identity and match buyers to growers. After registering (it’s free), growers can order grain sampling kits to send a sample of their crop to a lab, which will post the test results to the site. Growers then choose whether to place that crop for sale, and buyers can search for and purchase products with specific characteristics. In addition, the site links buyers to a variety of transportation specialists, including truck, train, barge and ship providers.
