ANN ARBOR, Mich. – FarmLogs, the leading tech startup that helps farmers leverage precise agriculture data to increase profitability, today announced that over 15% of the nation’s row crop farms are now using its data platform to be more efficient and increase production.
In just two years since launching its completely free farm data software, the rapidly growing company has amassed customers in all 50 states and 130 countries across 6 continents and now has over $11 billion in crops under management, a number that has more than tripled in less than six months.
“We are excited to have earned the trust of farmers around the country,” said Jesse Vollmar, CEO and co-founder of FarmLogs. “Reaching this major growth milestone means our product is now able to make a substantial positive impact on US agriculture. The pace at which we are growing is a testament to the tremendous quality of people working at FarmLogs and our ability to build a valuable product that puts the farmer first.”
FarmLogs’ intuitive web and mobile apps help break down the barriers that many of the large industry vendors have set in place and put critical operational data insights directly into the hands of the farmer. FarmLogs uses software and data science to bring critical farm data online in real time to help farmers manage and analyze the large amounts of underutilized data collected from their fields.
FarmLogs raised a $4 million Series A round of financing led by Drive Capital in January 2014, to help advance its technology, accelerate its growth and strengthen its market position.
