The minds behind the development of Farmlogs received word that they were getting a financial boost of seed money for the start-up company the week before the recent Iowa Power Farming Show, so they were enthusiastically getting folks to sign up for a one month free trial.
We talked to Co-Founder & CEO Jesse Vollmar (left in photo) at the show, and he said the additional capital is helping expand the company.
“[It will] help build out the team, pick up the pace. We want to reach as many farmers as we can, so the seed funding helps us do that,” Jesse explained.
The rural Michigan native grew up farming, and he said they are finding a way to merge information farmers get in their fields with the public information about other factors that affect their operations. “Pricing data, weather data and how that’s impacting their farm is something we pull all together in one place. A dashboard for farmers to manage all that information online.”
Jesse concludes telling us that you need to farm smart, and that includes smart apps from Farmlogs available to be sent straight to your smartphone. “There’s a lot of decisions that go into being a profitable farmer, and you need to make sure you’re making the right decisions.”
