Executive Summary
Finding ways to cater to the ever increasing demand for food from the limited farmlands requires solutions that would help improve the productivity of the farm.

Moreover, with the increasing farm sizes, the management of farms has become more and more difficult. Farm management software provide a convenient and effective solution to the problems of handling large amounts of data generated from farms which are larger in size. In a survey conducted by USDA, they revealed that the number of farms in U.S. decreased from 2.2 million in 2013 to 2.06 million in 2016.

During the same time, the average farm size increased from 435 acres in 2013 to 442 acres in 2016. These software not only help in data handling, but they also provide analytical services which help a farmer in taking more informed decisions. This way the farmers do not have to depend on decision making by chance, instead they can make decisions with assurance of success.

Farm management assists in managing all the farm activities so that the farm yields better results. Limited availability of resources and the need to cut down on the usage of chemical fertilizers has led to the governments searching for ways and alternatives that help in increasing yields from the available lands while reducing the fertilizer consumption.

According to the World Bank, the use of fertilizer in China increased from 423.4 kg/hectare in 2005 to 565.3 kg/hectare in 2014 which shows the efforts that have been put into increasing the yields from the available area. But, increase in fertilizer usage has negative impacts on the environment and also on human health. Thus the need for farm management software is increasing with the increasing need to produce more output from the available land.

Farm management software ensures the utilization of each acre of a farm to its maximum potential. These software also help in making sure that the application of fertilizer and the irrigation of fields is effective and in precise quantities.

The market is expected to progress at a substantial rate due to the ever growing affinity for more convenient cloud storage which has been widely incorporated in farm management software. The governments have also realized the need and importance of these software, thus their initiatives to promote farming and agriculture further drive the growth of the market.

These software promote cost effective farming which makes it profitable for the farmers as well. The increasing farm size in most of the regions further promotes the growth of the farm management software and services market as the need of software is more in larger farms were more data is generated and its collection and analysis is more complicated.

The growth of this market is being driven by certain factors such as the convenience of cloud usage in storing and accessing data, government initiatives to improve farming and agriculture, cost effective farming which helps in improving yields while reducing costs, the increasing farm size and the growing demand for food. However, certain challenges are inhibiting the overall growth for the farm management software & services market which include lack of technical knowledge, risk of security breaches, the need of large investment for on-premise software and the lack of acceptance from small farmers.

The farm management software and services market is expected to reach $2,883.4 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 17.6% from 2017 to 2021. This growth is attributed to the increasing awareness among governments about the need to produce more food while taking care about the environment.

The concept of farm management software and services market revolves around the major applications which include record keeping, farm mapping, monitoring and forecasting, farm economics and other applications. The market can also be classified on basis of the type of service provided by the software. These services can either be managed services or maintenance and support services. Managed services include data services, analytics and farm operation services which include inventory management and maintenance of equipment.

The trends of the farm management software and services market varies with different geographical regions. The farm management software and services market holds a prominent share in various countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the World (RoW). The competitive landscape for the farm management software and services market demonstrates an inclination towards companies adopting strategies such as product launch and development, and partnerships and collaborations.

The major established players in the market, are focusing more product launch and development to introduce new forms of innovations. Trimble Navigation, Iteris Inc., AgJunction, Ag Leader, and The Climate Corporation were the most prominent names that surfaced in 2016 in this regard. These companies launched various new products and brought new developments to their existing products in order to expand their share in the market.

The need for more R&D and appropriate regulatory environments is a prerequisite for sustained growth of this market. Various government and private research institutes, and regulatory bodies and associations are putting in substantial efforts to identifying how farm management software can be important for required food production.

The need for sophisticated farming techniques is necessary to fulfill the increasing demand for food. Farm management software not only makes farming more productive, it also helps in attracting the youth towards farming and agriculture. The youth needs to step up in order to bring improvements in the condition of farming, for which farm management software can play an important role.
