Granular Launches Free Tool to Help Farmers Easily Measure Field-Level Profitability

Farmers now have access to Granular Insights, the only free tool connected to the leading suite of robust financial, operational, and agronomic solutions

SAN FRANCISCO — (February 24, 2020) — Granular, the world’s leading farm management software platform, announces Granular Insights, an easy to use, free digital tool that replaces manual spreadsheets by combining in near real-time, a farm’s multiple sources of operational data with estimated revenue and cost data to deliver a clearer view of field-level profitability with close to zero effort.

Up until now, farmers have had to stitch together disparate data sources by laboriously creating – then keeping updated – spreadsheets to figure out field-by-field profitability. With Granular Insights, farmers have a new tool in their toolbox to get a more accurate look at their bottom line. For example, farmers now can analyze the ROI of seed decisions, better visualize field performance and harvest moisture levels through map layers, and see side-by-side comparisons of field financials with a press of a few buttons, in a way that farmers have not had easy access to in the past. Plus, farmers can easily invite team members and trusted advisors to view and collaborate on their operational decisions, with permissioning that shares only selected information.

“We couldn’t have asked for a simpler process,” said Adam Edwards of Edwards Farms in Virden, Illinois. “We link John Deere Operations Center and Granular Insights, and can easily see our real-time profit estimates by acre, seed, hybrid, or percent harvested. This tool has really helped us make decisions on hybrids for 2020 planting. And the detailed reports make our annual crop insurance reporting much easier. Granular Insights helps us manage our data more efficiently.”

The average corn and soybean farm in the United States generates more than 2,500 data records during a typical 10-month growing season. Most farmers don’t track actual field-level productivity in season, finding it too time-consuming to stitch together invoices, scale data, contracts, land boundaries, tasks and field operations, costing them profits.

By seamlessly combining in near real-time, data from John Deere Operations Center and uploads from more than 10 other manufacturers in a few clicks, Granular Insights puts siloed machine data to work, saving farmers up to three weeks worth of man hours of data entry per year.

After a successful beta test, more than 1,500 farmers from across the United States signed up for Granular Insights and this announcement marks its commercial availability.

“Especially in today’s environment, farmers need to have better visibility into their bottom line,” said Sid Gorham, CEO of Granular and President of Corteva Digital Business Platform. “We realized one of the greatest pain points on the farm is that a farmer’s data is sitting all over the place, and it takes a lot of time and effort to pull it all together. With Granular Insights, farmers now have access to easy-to-interpret and actionable insights, and tangible proof of the power of data to contribute to their overall profitability.”
