Rabo AgriFinance and Conservis will co-develop technology that makes it possible for U.S. crop farmers to seamlessly connect their real-time field and management data with financial results.
“To have two companies already working with farmers pair up like this, so I can break down the wall between the mountains of farm data and my financials, is something great,” says Aaron Lee, general manager of Cornerstone Family Farms in southern Indiana near Salem. “No other farm management platforms have cracked that nut.”
“Given the economic conditions that farmers are facing, there has never been a more appropriate time to unite ag tech and fintech,” said Sherman Black, CEO of Conservis.
The Conservis platform enables farmers to organize all the data coming in from different sources and platforms, eliminate manual entry, create business plans and manage their cost and production operations throughout the year.
With the independent Conservis platform, farmers own their data and control when Rabo AgriFinance receives information.
“Conservis works exclusively with leading producers internationally as we do, so they understand the complex business needs of our clients,” says Curt Hudnutt, executive vice president of Rabo AgriFinance and head of rural business in North America for Rabobank. “We are committed to connecting our clients to tools that might help them not only manage risk and finances but also the other challenges of managing a business. After extensive research, we feel confident in the Conservis farm management software and their hands-on approach to helping clients get the most of their product.”
