Granular Overview

What is Granular?

Granular is a farm management tool designed to improve farm productivity and generate the maximum possible revenue from produce. Granular helps farmers with crop and field planning by building farm plans for each field and anticipating the optimal water requirements and climate effect on these crops. The solution analyzes a large amount of data to calculate the estimated value of individual fields and presents real-time analytics reports to farmers, helping them to make correct and timely decisions.

Granular provides farmers with a complete crop history for the past five years, including crop rotation information for particular pieces of land. The historical data helps farmers to decide which crops to plant, and the revenue that they can expect to receive. The software allows users to track and manage all farming related tasks and schedules through their smartphone. Users do not have to manage paper-based reports on soil and land data as Granular manages all of this, and provides regular updates when changes occur.

Granular's reporting capabilities enable farmers to quickly build professional yield and profitability reports. The application provides a networking platform for farmers to connect with other farmers on the Granular network. Silent Shade Planting Company, Walnut Grove Farms, Clete Inc, and Running Lake Farms are some of the agricultural organizations using Granular.

Best farming software hands down


Ryan R.

Great Product, but with some limitations

Our overall experience has been a good one, but wish I could say I'm 100% satisfied and I can't say that yet. I'm hoping I will get there someday.

Microscope for Farm Operation

Overall I have had a positive experience. My customer success advisor has made sure my needs are met and if I am too busy in the field they will even add in or switch data for my operation while I am on the phone. This program has also allowed me to dive deeper into analyzing field by field profitability, track various field practices and how they relate to yield as well as the ability to be a data cache for all farm related financials and yield for things like crop insurance.

Granular helps us visualize our bottom line

2020 was our fourth crop year with granular and we are finally comfortable using it and know that we are getting good data. To an extent, it has been a struggle to succeed with this product but in many ways, it is our own fault. We have not dedicated the time or people to it until recently. I think a farm that would be dedicated to it could have correctly implemented the software in half the time that we did. Now that we are getting good numbers out of it I'm pleased with the product and the support the entire way through has been great. Probably better than any other product or software that we use on our farm.

Pros

Flexibility based on your operations needs. There are numerous features that can be used to improve your operation. They have hands down the best support of any product in the industry. They get to know your operation and its nuances on a personal level and they want you to succeed.

Cons

Setting your account up and getting the full benefit is tedious and can be a lot of work at first. You do reap what you sow though.

Our overall experience has been a good one, but wish I could say I'm 100% satisfied and I can't say that yet. I'm hoping I will get there someday.

Pros

It's fairly easy to use. It has helped our farming operation to finally nail down some expectation of where we'll end up at the end of the year. With our accounting software I would eventually get there but after the fact. The up to date information as the season is progressing gives us valuable management tier information . It has allowed us to pivot on plans quickly and have confidence in those decisions.

Cons

It has to be modified and implement multiple workarounds to make it work. I also don't like the significant amount of time needing to be spent in the software in order to keep information accurate and up to date. The grain inventory function for us is worthless and actually very difficult to keep straight. As far as providing new features, they seemed to implement quite a few when we starting using it, but I haven't seen anything for a while. Some of the updates are not necessarily improvements.

Pros

Granular has the best product support I have ever dealt with. From my customer success advisor to in app help, it is top notch. Granular also integrates well with various manufacturers equipment in terms of data transfer, allowing ease of use no matter what level of comfort with technology. Finally, this program is a total systems approach to my farm management. From documenting land rents, recording in season work to tracking grain contracts and grain inventory; it is all accessible by myself and other admin to keep us up to date while not wasting time.

Cons

Integration of this product was not difficult but time consuming. One area I would like to see improved is to have the ability to load machine data from either cloud or thumb drive and program will automatically load lbs. of crop into inventory. I feel inventory and contract portion of program is almost too in depth. Finally price; I do feel this product is high priced compared to competitors and certainly for growers that are small to medium or do not perform all tasks themselves, i.e. spraying and trucking. this eliminates some of the value proposition of the program.

Pros

I like that it breaks the cost and quantity down of each item over the year and that you can filter the data in so many different ways.

Cons

It is hard to adapt the software at times for cotton growers or irrigated producers. It also takes a lot of time to sift through the data and make sure that it is correct.
