New agricultural data analytics provider Main Street Data announced the nationwide availability of its inaugural solution, the Validator, a data tool that enables ag producers to validate that the farming practice decisions they make every year are achieving their production goals.
The Validator is an independent data tool providing growers with subfield-level visibility to any gaps between the potential at a chosen benchmark yield level versus their actual yields, and performance comparison to others farming under like conditions.
Armed with this information, growers can determine if they are achieving their goals, understand if their products and practices are working and course-correct if not, accurately assess if their performance is competitive, and ultimately make better, more-informed yield-enhancing decisions.
The Validator is available directly to farmers exclusively through GiSC, (Grower Information Services Cooperative), the nation’s only grower-owned and -governed agricultural data cooperative. Validator Platinum is available to GiSC members with a five-year trend plan for $2.50/acre, or members can purchase Validator Premium, a single-year (2018) plan, for $.85/acre. Validator Platinum comes with a money-back guarantee.
