The financing process has reportedly been designed user-friendly so that growers can easily access the application via an online portal, send their request, upload the required documents, and then get started. Once their lease finance gets approved, they will get into the direct relationship with GRENKE, told CropLogic.

CropLogic realTime has been developed as a hardware technology for the agricultural sector, leveraging over 30 years of research.

This information is then framed in a concise format to provide actionable insights to users as a foundation to its cost-saving decisions. The software support offered by the company enables the users to view this data via a user-friendly application called CropLogic GrowerView.

The management advised that the company move’s to offer GRENKE lease finance options addresses the highly-sensitive cashflow issue among its growers as the lease financing would provide growers with an affordable way to finance their purchases of its realTime.

Brendan Kelly, GRENKE’s Account Director, stated GRENKE has spotted exciting market trends that could potentially make a product like CropLogic realTime useful to horticulture growers. These leasing services would not only assist the growers with their purchase of CropLogic realTime but would also enhance CropLogic’s access to the multi-billion horticulture industry.

The company is further progressing with the hemp production process by facilitating the use of its innovative hardware and software package, CropLogic realTime.
