Customer success stories keep us motivated. We’re proud to share how Launch Pad, powered by our First Pass algorithm has impacted farmers around the world.
Read how Launch Pad technology helped Delage Farms tackle their challenge with in-field coordination and communication. They successfully reduced hours and resources needed in the field during harvest.
A true tale about the original inventors of First Pass technology and why they felt using a product that eliminated the decision making process of how a field was entered, exited and operated changed the way they ran their entire operation.
What our partners
"Operations always trumps Agronomy". Following Agronomic practices can be complex with a lot of correlations required to monetize the benefits, but anybody who sits in the seat of a piece of equipment grasps the concept of path planning and how it benefits operations. The first adoption of Digital Ag should be Path Planning. Launch Pad does just that.
Path planning for agricultural field operations is a core activity that has a major impact on minimizing economic (fuel, inputs, and time) and environmental (emissions, soil erosion, and water run-off) costs for the farmer. The team at Verge are the first ones to develop a truly interactive web application that integrates all the complexities of path planning in an accessible way to drive farmer adoption. We believe this will be game changing for farmers.
As we looked to continue to grow with our customers and meet their evolving needs beyond our traditional markets of sugarcane and rice, we saw the need for a planning tool that was more intuitive and agile for the farmers. The team at Verge Ag and their Launch Pad software were right on the mark and so bringing our businesses together made perfect sense.
We pride ourselves on being great at what we do. We knew that our in-field management in previous years was always good; but using Launch Pad to plan our operations during harvest this year took us from good to exceptional.
I will no longer farm without Launch Pad. Full stop. We pride ourselves on running a tight operation and being very efficient with our units. We didn’t even realize how much more productive our machinery could be.
It’s the most cost efficient tech/software product since auto-steer. The experience with Launch Pad has increased our efficiency, flow and organization. Our 10 combines line up every time and our cost savings and time management was beyond our expectations.
