FarmLogs App Helps Farmers Collect and Retrieve Data – The New York Times

Saginaw Valley State University CIS graduates, Jesse Vollmar and Brad Koch, featured in a New York Times article showcasing their FarmLogs App. And no, it’s nothing like Farmville :)

“Mr. Vollmar and Mr. Koch moved their company to Ann Arbor to be closer to the agriculture industry and to tap the University of Michigan’s vaunted computer science programs for employees. By fall 2012, FarmLogs had opened for business as a web-based data management tool and drew $1 million in seed funding from the Chicago-based Hyde Park Venture Partners. In 2014, the business received an additional $14 million from Hyde Park and other sources.”
