API: Data at the Speed of Need
Call our farm & grower data directly into your web, desktop and mobile applications
for detailed, real-time insights on growers, fields, and farm operations.
Integrated Access to Farm & Grower Data via Public REST API
An API (application programming interface) is a series of rules that provides instructions and a common language to extract data from one platform and deliver it to another instantaneously.
Think of it as a middleman or translator. It enables your computer systems to talk to and work with our computer systems through a series of specific, predetermined queries or web services calls.
In this case, the Farm Market iD API facilitates communication between our database and your applications, allowing you to call data into your application one record at a time.
Bring all your data under one roof. Your roof.
Integrate our data with your applications. Leverage real-time access to our data to enhance your applications – content management system, CRM, etc.
Automate your data pulls and queries. The API can pull large datasets in less than a second, saving your team time to input, clean up, and validate the data on your end.
Access the most current information. We update our data constantly so through the API you get the most current information without having to do any work on your end.
Prefill web forms with relevant data. When a user inputs basic contact information into a form, you can use our API to call the data for the rest of the form in automatically. Then all you need to do is ask the grower to confirm.
Getting Started with our Public REST API
We have created predefined set of uniform resource identifiers, or URIs, that are immediately available to our API users. These URIs show users how to make data requests, and specific which data the endpoint will return after that request is issued.
Your developers can utilize the API to directly integrate key data points into web, desktop and mobile applications, or anywhere you need to display or access the data.
To get started, we have created a sandbox environment where your developers can test and develop using our APIs at no charge.
You can access this data via an API-key that our team provides. This API-Key is specific to your company, with specific viewable preferences.
Test it out and see if it improves your agribusiness’ efficiency and effectiveness. If it looks good, then contact our team to license real farm & grower data for your use.
