Getting started

Using DjustConnect is very simple. Once you’re registered you are redirected to a personal dashboard.

Want to get more out of your data?

In the agri-food sector we produce food and data. From the moment a product leaves the farm it becomes part of an extensive agri-food chain. New data gets added at each link in the processing chain. Each link therefore has data with its own potential value.

By drawing up a digital strategy and by correctly addressing the technical, legal and business considerations, your company can get more out of your data.


How can you ensure that your technical choices support your digital roadmap?

  • Use APIs to share data more quickly and more flexibly.
  • Be sure to use certain standards and identifiers that are useful for potential data receivers.
  • Using DjustConnect handles many IT issues for you, so you can concentrate on the content.


What about privacy, data ownership and the required contracts?

  • DjustConnect offers one central digital contract for all users and participating companies
  • The rules are clear and are in line with the EU Code of Conduct for data sharing in agriculture
  • The technical infrastructure ensures that data can only be shared after explicit consent and under the conditions specified in the data request.


You want to develop a revenue model for data sharing?

  • Determine the best revenue model for your project, and see it as part of your overall business model.
  • Always look at your revenue model in relation to that of your partners, so it works best for everyone.
  • Find out how this model adds value for the farmer as well.
  • Invest in growth first; count on profit later.

You can manage the data requests by clicking ‘overview’ in the data tab to get a detailed overview of the requested data sources. You can give permission for each data source separately in the column ‘Actions’. You will see a checkmark in ‘Status’ when you have given permission. These data will be sent to the application.

My dashboard is empty. Why?

Not a dairy farmer? Then it is possible that there are no data-requests for you at this moment. Behind the scenes we are working hard on new applications. Please register today to be personally kept informed of data-requests for your business through email. This way you keep 100% control over your agricultural data, now and in the future.

Experiencing a problem logging in?

Signing in to DjustConnect is smoothest if you use Google Chrome as your browser. For browsers such as Edge, Safari, Firefox, Opera or others, logging in works best if you briefly disable the cookie blocker in the settings. Do problems persist? Please get in contact.

Can I access my DjustConnect dashboard on my smartphone?

DjustConnect is up and running smoothly from your PC today. Unfortunately, there is no app or mobile version of DjustConnect today.

This allows you to use DjustConnect from your smartphone, but the display will not be pretty and the ease of use will be much less.

If you still want to try this, we recommend ticking "desktop site".


My iPhone cannot open DjustConnect. How to Enable Cookies in Chrome on iPhone?

Google Chrome has first-party cookies enabled and there are no settings to turn that off. However, by default, iOS disables third-party cookies. If you want to turn that on, we have to again head over to Settings.

Under the Settings menu, scroll down to Chrome and tap on it. Under the Chrome Settings, turn on the toggle beside “Allow Cross-Website Tracking”.
