HarvestPort Launches New Service Levels for Inputs Program to Help Growers Plan, Forecast and Cut Costs on Inputs
The HarvestPort Inputs Program leverages the strength of farmers’ collective buying power to generate the best prices on crop inputs and other supplies.
SAN FRANCISCO — August 29, 2019 — HarvestPort, the early-stage agtech company serving as a trusted partner to both farmers and their suppliers, today launched new service levels as part of HarvestPort Inputs Program, which helps midsize and large growers and land management organizations plan purchases, secure competitive pricing and navigate product alternatives.
The HarvestPort Inputs Program leverages the strength of farmers' collective buying power to generate the best prices on crop inputs and other supplies. In addition to competitive pricing, benefits of the program include:
• Help with planning and forecasting to learn how to save more money.
• Securing best prices by choosing recommended generic products by active ingredient.
• Receiving strategic assistance with procurement, product selection and budget management.
Inputs Program members have a choice of three plan options:
• Value: Designed for midsize to large growers that want to save the most and don't have brand preferences.
• Select: Designed for midsize to large growers with multiple commodities and brand preferences. HarvestPort actively negotiates the best price for forecasted demand.
• Enterprise: Best for large growing or land management organizations with robust operations. HarvestPort handles all planning and procurement.
"Our ability to use technology greatly benefits growers as well as suppliers by creating a marketplace that reduces operating costs and provides help with strategic planning," said Brian P. Dawson, CEO of HarvestPort. "The Inputs Program gives farmers and land management organizations a major advantage and lets them choose the option that works best for them."
Program pricing ranges from $0.50 - $1.00/acre/order or $1.50/acre/month, depending on the program option. For more information, visit https://www.harvestport.com/inputs.
HarvestPort connects a network of agricultural stakeholders and collaborates with them to develop strategic solutions for the challenges facing the American agricultural industry. What started in 2014 as a platform for sharing equipment has evolved into a robust agricultural marketplace that removes barriers to growth from both ends of the supply chain.
Co-founded by entrepreneurs Brian P. Dawson and Chad Hokama and based in San Francisco, HarvestPort secured a Series A funding round in 2017, which included investments from Cultivian Ventures and Taylor Farms, among others.
