Introducing Farm Dog

Growers spend 5% to 20% of their operating expenses per year on pest control yet continue to suffer from 20% to 40% crop loss due to pest and disease, not to mention ongoing scrutiny from just about everybody.  Sounds like a broken model to us.

We started Farm Dog to help growers increase yields while minimizing pesticide use.  We believe in empowering them with the right tools to more confidently make pest and disease management decisions.  Today, we open Farm Dog to you – the growers and their trusted advisors.

The backstory

You battle every day with threats against your crops.  Whether it’s ongoing issues such as soybean cyst nematodes or what may seem like random outbreaks of whiteflies, each region, each crop, and each growth stage provides its own challenges.

Scouting in the field

Helpful tools do exist, but they are too often not integrated.  It’s a pain being in the field juggling your notebook, phone camera, the everlasting search for the red ribbon marker you placed in the field last week, and your email/messaging application.

And while Extension services do a great job of collecting regional outbreak information, accessing that information when you need it in the field remains a challenge.

Finally, at the end of the season, when your finances show how much you’ve spent on pest and disease management, do you have the information you need to identify areas for improvement?

What if we could empower everybody – all growers, no matter the size – to collectively fight back against pest and disease in a way that saves time, labor, and chemical inputs?
