With AgShift’s easy to use mobile app, growers of diversified farms can gather accurate cost of production information and make financially driven decisions on marketing and crop planning. The app enables growers to make decisions based on insights (data from their farm records) rather than instincts.
Miku Jha, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AgShift, says, “We are pleased to have this opportunity to collaborate with Sonoma County UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE). Sonoma County, UCCE academic staff is at the forefront of change, working to preserve agriculture, conducting research on a wide range of subjects and extending its findings to business and industry, consumers, educators, and the community at large. When it comes to current software solutions for small to midsize farms, we recognized a lack of understanding of the growers and their daily challenges. We have set out to change that. At Agshift, we are committed to bettering the lives of growers and their communities, and working with UCCE is helping us address this.” Dr. Stephanie Larson, UCCE County Director says, “Collaborating with AgShift is in-line with the work we do to support and train aspiring farmers to run successful farm businesses, and who will need this tool to track cost of production. These farmers will be the next generation of Agropreneurs.”
AgShift’s ultimate aim is to provide tools that will help growers improve their on-farm decision-making and planning to maximize farm profitability. Farm profit management becomes extremely complex when successive and overlapping crops are grown on the farm during the year. We designed AgShift especially for small to midsize farms to maximize the return on investment (ROI) for the whole farm. Growers can generate “what-if” scenarios to see which crops and investments make sense for their unique situations and needs. The goal is to maximize the return on every dollar that the grower invests by continuously gathering and analyzing farm data and external data sources such as soil, markets, historical crop trends, weather and research data. The grower will always know ahead, how each decision impacts the farm’s ROI.
In this release of AgShift we have made farm record keeping a breeze. Tracking income, expenses and labor across different crops and different markets can be tricky and tedious. We have simplified that with our Ledger Keeper. In addition, we have a starter version of Profit Maximizer that improves farm profits by translating data into helpful insights and customized recommendations. We are taking agricultural data science to new highs as we make previously inaccessible information available for objective decision-making.
