NEW ORLEANS, March 4, 2016 – Today from the 2016 Commodity Classic in New Orleans, FarmLogs announced the launch of its unconditional money-back guarantee on FarmLogs Prescriptions, the company’s unbiased recommendations that help farmers effortlessly improve field performance. FarmLogs variable rate prescriptions for nitrogen and seeding, which became available earlier this year, help growers increase their profits and achieve yield goals by optimizing input costs to get the best return on their investment. The unprecedented guarantee strengthens FarmLogs’ partnership with growers and reflects the company’s commitment to creating a better future for farming.
“Farming today is more exciting than ever before. For the first time in history, precision farming is ready to make a real impact for growers. There have been many failed attempts and few successes. Breakthrough technologies and easy to implement systems like FarmLogs now make it possible to guarantee great results,” said Jesse Vollmar, CEO and co-founder of FarmLogs. “We are so confident that FarmLogs Prescriptions will make a positive operational difference, that if for any reason our customers are unsatisfied, we will give them a full refund.”
FarmLogs Prescriptions utilize over five seasons of detailed satellite imagery and soil survey data to capture variations in the field in an entirely new way. FarmLogs automatically generates field management zones and gives users variable rate application recommendations based on daily weather updates and the unique needs of each field. FarmLogs Prescriptions have an annual cost of $2,499 plus an $8.50 per acre fee which includes world-class support.
FarmLogs CEO Jesse Vollmar will speak at Commodity Classic on remote sensing and how the technology can unlock insights from the field to improve productivity, increase profitability and dramatically simplify farm operations. Vollmar’s Learning Center Session, titled Precision Farming from Above: The Future of Satellite Technology on the Farm, will take place on Friday, March 4, at 12:30 p.m. in rooms 275-277 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The company will showcase all of its offerings and offer one-on-one customer support at booth #3809, March 3-5.
