A Kansas City company on Tuesday launched a benchmarking tool that aims to more accurately show farmers the performance potential for their corn, soybean and wheat fields.
The TrueHarvest Benchmark was developed by FarmLink, which analyzed yield information on millions of acres and used other publicly available data to give farmers crop production information.
FarmLink said it had invested more than $54 million over the past four years to develop the TrueHarvest Benchmark.
“Until now, farmers had no way to know whether their yields — high or low — were representative of top performance,” Scott Robinson, president of FarmLink, said in a statement. “Now farmers can increase, decrease or change inputs based on where they see the greatest potential and judge the value of these input changes year over year.”
