“Farmers have smartphones and tablets in the fields, but the way that farmers connect to the market and sell grain has not yet seen a major change due to new technology," said Pikat. “We think will facilitate this change—where farmers can check grain bids from any elevator through an easy-to-use map interface or zip code look-up, and then in seconds send an offer to one or more elevators. The physical grain marketplace is highly fragmented and will work to change that by centralizing where farmers can connect with grain elevators," added Pikat.
