How much does it cost to use Yield Prophet?

Yield Prophet is available to the Australian farming and research community for a low yearly subscription fee for each paddock modelled, and all subscription fees are invested back into the development and maintenance of the Yield Prophet system.

In 2016, BCG will be offering a discount on subscription costs for users who return results from last year. Returning results is an important method of validating the Yield Prophet and APSIM model, so we are offering this incentive to support this. New Subscribers will also receive the discounted rate. Rates for 2016 are as follows:

Membership Category Full Rate Discount rate for new users
or users who have returned results
BCG Members/Partners $175 $135

In addition, the same bulk discounts will be offered as in previous years.

Growers 1 free paddock for every 3 subscribed
Consultants and advisors 5 free paddocks for every 15 subscribed, and after this a further 1 free paddock for every 3 subscribed
