DTN Launches Free App to Help Farmers Market Grain
Minneapolis, MN (February 26, 2019) – DTN, the leading provider of agricultural insights and data, is releasing DTN Ag Marketplace, a mobile app that facilitates end-to-end cash grain sales to help growers take advantage of seasonal marketing opportunities and track important information, all in one place. The app provides each grower with instant access to grain prices, as well as their current inventory levels and market positions.
“Growers have asked for easier ways to sell grain to multiple agribusinesses without disrupting the relationships they have built,” said Mark Holland, chief operating officer and senior vice president of agriculture at DTN. “DTN Ag Marketplace is the only mobile app on the market that supports their current relationships with local grain buyers while driving efficiency into the process. The app enables local sales directly, which is something our farmer customers haven’t found in other solutions and we are proud to offer them that capability.”
DTN Ag Marketplace allows growers to take advantage of short-lived market rallies, efficiently track open offers, and manage sold and unsold inventory. It features a customizable central dashboard that highlights the grower’s sales goals and inventory status and allows them to quickly and confidently sell grain from anywhere. Growers can connect with local agribusinesses, find best prices, and easily select the amount and type of commodity to market — all without leaving the app.
Push notifications alert growers on offer status updates, goal reminders, and real-time price thresholds to help them maintain control of their business plan.
“One of the most important things we do at DTN is ensuring that our farmers constantly have access to the solutions and insights that will help them prosper. DTN Ag Marketplace is an invaluable tool that gives them direct access to data, their local agribusinesses, and trusted partners so they can easily carry out smart marketing decisions when the time is right,” Holland said.
The DTN Ag Marketplace app is free to download, and available on iOS devices.
