SureHarvest is adding LandView iPad and iPhone mapping and report apps to its farming management technology offerings

SureHarvest is proud to announce an agreement with Altamont Technologies to market, sell, and implement the new LandView mapping and field recordkeeping system. "LandView is a simple to use yet powerful geo-spatial app that complements our other offerings," said SureHarvest President/CEO Jeff Dlott.  "This agreement furthers our efforts to provide the best available information technology solutions to agricultural producers and their partners.  Our customers have been asking for easy-to-use apps to access information about their farms or ranches in maps while standing in the field, working in the truck, or back at the office.  Now they can.  This partnership helps us support our customers and grow our business." 

"We think the advent of smart phones and tablets is a game changer for agricultural producers and others in the industry.  Simply seeing problems or an issue in a field alters the way we can try to solve them.  A grower can attach a photo to anything anywhere and assign a task that others in the organization can access for subsequent follow up activity," stated Altamont Technologies President Tom Horsley.  "What really adds value to our offering is the integration with the SureHarvest products.  We can display irrigation, nutrient, pesticide, yield and food safety data in LandView in a way that aids growers in their decision processes.  Some things are just better viewed on a map and the iPad and iPhone are the perfect tools to make that a reality," added Horsley.  Altamont Technologies logo
