Leaf’s product is a unified farm data API and is charged at a per-hectare fee. Customers use our API to send and receive user-permissioned data with other companies in a consistent, standardised way.
For example, if a customer wanted to know the date a certain field was planted, they could access this information from John Deere, Climate Fieldview, AFS connect, or any of several other data sources. However, these sources all store data in different proprietary ways, have different authentication and hierarchy structures, and dramatically different API designs, as well as varying abstraction concepts (season-boundaries vs. static field boundaries). The challenge is therefore that the customer would need to build and maintain functions to navigate and translate through these different structures, which are themselves likely to change several times each year.
Using Leaf’s solutions, the customer can connect once to our API and retrieve and send data across all providers, without needing to worry about the complexity of each individual provider. Leaf helps customers to easily overcome data integration barriers and have their tools automatically compatible with all major agriculture brands.
