They say nothing in life is guaranteed, and that certainly applies to seed procurement for ag retailers and growers. While seed for the spring planting season can be ordered months in advance, there’s never a certainty that specific blends or mixes will be available upon delivery time.
Many ag retailers struggle to manage not only large and complex seed orders but also the substitutions of these seeds and different zone pricing. Outside of Excel, there hasn’t been a robust system to track these procurements and transactions. That has changed with Levridge, a cutting-edge agriculture software solution that allows ag retailers to better manage their full operations, including seed procurement.
Seed pricing can vary depending on the area of the state or region that it is received. Within Levridge, purchase orders are easily created that includes a field for the area, or zone, that is receiving the product. The invoice is then automatically adjusted to account for the correct pricing for that zone. This eliminates any need for the ag retailer finance team to manually adjust for regions or variances.
When seed variety substitutions occur, ag retailers must manually adjust contracts for each grower or customer. Once a substitution has been agreed upon between the Field Sales Agronomist and grower, the substitution can be easily made in Levridge through a few clicks, and all contracts, invoices, and orders are automatically updated to include the details and pricing of the new seed.
