Farmobile expands Minnesota Data Store

Farmobile, a farm data company, has expanded its Minnesota Data Store. Beginning in this year’s harvest season, any Minnesota farmer who automatically collects their Electronic Field Record (EFR) harvest data via a Farmobile PUC (passive uplink connection), and also provides their EFR planting data, is eligible for a $2/acre guarantee.

“We are removing the $1 million cap that was in place last spring. Any Minnesota farmer who provides complete EFR records will be eligible to claim this new revenue opportunity,” said Jason Tatge, CEO and founder of Farmobile.

Farmobile has also created a strategic partnership with Grower Information Services Cooperative (GiSC). With membership spanning 38 states, GiSC members can benefit from Farmobile’s PUC, a small plug-and-play device that rides in the cab and automatically collects and stores machine and agronomy data in one place. The partnership gives Farmobile access to far more farmers; as a result, Farmobile is able to expand the Data Store so that all farmers in Minnesota can be a part, according to the company.

“Both GiSC and Farmobile believe that growers should own their data outright, maintain control and access of the use of that data. As a member owned cooperative with a focus on digital assets, a partnership with Farmobile is pretty natural,” said Jason Ward, executive director of GISC.
