Mark Oostlander – BASF

“Farming Smarter provides excellent customer service and is quick at responding to our questions and/ or requests. They provide a quick turn around on data, which is very important to us. In addition, they are willing to put in the extra effort to find the pests (weeds) that we look to test our products on.”
