So...what’s Agrirouter? It’s a independent hub for sharing data between machines and between software. Funded initially by makers of machinery and data-based systems and compatible with most major equipment brands, its service is free to end-users. Security and privacy look to be good: Agrirouter says its system takes only information selected by the user, then transfers it solely between the locations specified by the user. No data is permanently retained.
