Farm management software company FarmLogs is used by over 20% of the farms in the U.S. with over $15 billion in crops under management. Now FarmLogs has launched the only crop health monitoring service in the industry that can pinpoint the exact location in the part of the field that needs attention. If a problem is detected in the field that causes a risk of losing yield during the growing season, FarmLogs users will automatically receive actionable maps.
FarmLogs monitors crop health by utilizing multi-spectral satellite imagery to build performance baselines from over five years of field-specific crop health data.
