Field irrigation data now available through Leaf

Since Leaf’s inception as the unified API for food and agriculture, companies have been turning to us to access standardized farm data like field operations and boundaries from a variety of agricultural providers. As we have built on Leaf’s data services over the years, many customers have expressed interest in pulling in irrigation data, and we are happy to announce that it’s now available!

Whether you're a provider of a farm management system, agronomy platform, food traceability system or something similar, you can now integrate field irrigation information into your technology. We’re excited to see how this service gets used in your technology for growers/users to better monitor water usage, optimize water use efficiency, and make data-driven water resource management decisions.
