We are an ag software company that analyzes big data. Instead of spending hours staring at yield maps and field records to see whether your seed, fertilizer, or drainage really made a difference, we can turn this guess work into an easy-to-use, easy-to-read analysis that tells you what mattered on your field. We compare every yield point in a field with its neighbors, resulting in literally thousands of head-to-head comparisons in a single field. This means that yield data from on-farm comparisons can now be as statistically accurate as replicated, small block trials.
