Introducing Leaf Prescriptions

Why Prescriptions Matter

Sustainability demands and increased input costs are driving farmers and agriculture companies to focus more on variable rate recommendations. Being able to export these recommendations to multiple cloud platforms quickly and easily helps companies focus on the prescriptions and operations instead of maintaining compatibility with multiple systems.

Leaf's Prescription Service allows developers to export agronomic recommendations to any OEM via a single API. This helps companies deliver a seamless experience for their customers and replace the manual processes of chasing equipment to upload prescription recommendations.

How It Works

Step 1: Use a Leaf User account to go through the authentication process for the preferred cloud provider: guides for each provider available here.

Step 2: Upload your prescription (as a shapefile within a zipped folder) using the endpoint(s) to send the file to specific or multiple OEM’s.
