Solution/Value Proposition: By allowing farmers to collect and manage their data it allows for better opportunities to make informed decisions with the hope of improving bottom line. We can evaluate the cost, in terms of time and effort involved as well as upfront charges to utilize the software. This will allow farmers to see if there is financial benefit in paying for a software and using it for data management and evaluation of in season applications. We can help to remove the buzz and see what aspects work well and sync nicely with other equipment and platforms and which platforms could use some further development to be more user friendly.
