Bushel Inc., an independently-owned software company, announced the launch of Bushel Farm™, their latest farm management software for farmers and their agribusiness partners. The new offering further reduces the burden of manual data entry for farmers and provides valuable grain marketing insights. Built upon the company’s FarmLogs solution, Bushel Farm offers a robust feature set in both mobile and desktop experiences, while maintaining its easy-to-use design.

Bushel will also release integration that will enable farmers to auto-populate their individual grain sales data in Bushel Farm mid-2023. Specifically, farmers who do business with one or more of the thousands of grain facilities that use Bushel solutions will be able to import their grain sales data into Bushel Farm. A The first phase of the integration of grain sales data will allow the auto-population of contracts.

“I’ve always loved the FarmLogs app, and I love the Bushel app from my elevator. When I dump a semi at the elevator, within five minutes that ticket pops up on my phone. I don’t even have to have the truck driver tell me what the weight or moisture was,” said Kevin Harstad, a farmer from Stanley, North Dakota. “Once you have the two systems connected, it’ll all be there [in Bushel Farm] and I won’t have to manually enter it anymore. That will be a great feature. I'm looking forward to it.”

For commercial grain buyers

Packages of Bushel Farm subscriptions are available for commercial grain buyers and other agribusinesses that are looking to strengthen relationships with their farmer customers, track farm practices for specific grain origination programs or assist farmers with grain marketing through managed bushels or over-the-counter (OTC) programs.

“Specialty processors like ourselves have been trying to solve the problem of sharing information downstream to our end buyers,” said Scott Sinner, partner and supply manager at SB&B Foods. “Consumers are requiring much, much more transparency and this [Bushel Farm] is an easy and secure way to do that. Bushel is right on track to make sure that happens.”

Subscriptions to Bushel Farm have grown to an all-time high over the past year. More than 100,000 farmers use a variety of Bushel products today, creating the largest technology network effect among farmers and grain buyers in the U.S. today. Bushel Farm is available for desktop and Android and Apple devices on the App Store or Google Play® store for Bushel Farm.

FarmLogs, the solution on which Bushel Farm was built, was created in 2011 and acquired by Bushel in 2021.
