Since 2014, Farmers Edge has invested in digitizing their customers’ farms to automatically collect, integrate, and process data from multiple sources into one platform, including: on-farm weather stations, nearly every make and model of equipment, soil tests, daily satellite imagery, fertilizer application, and harvest data. Now processing over 50,000 fields a day and analyzing over 11 billion data records, Farmers Edge provides unbiased insights to help growers base farm management decisions on data, not marketing campaigns, traditional practices, or gut instincts.

Wade Barnes, president & CEO of Farmers Edge remarked, “the ability to gather and integrate detailed information from growers’ fields, coupled with advances in weather forecasting, rapid processing, predictive modeling, and machine learning, is changing farming from a business that often reacts to the past to one that uses data to support decisions for seasons ahead. It’s about accuracy, efficiency, productivity, and ease of use. This year, Farmers Edge is forecast to expand our data collection network to encompass over 8,500 weather stations and 25,000 telematics devices across 33 million paid product acres. That growth fuels the development of more tools to let growers experience the value of their farm data and show them how it can be used to save time, stay organized, and make more money. This isn’t just the beginning of decision agriculture, this is a digital disruption.”
