What is the Minimum Job Rule?
The minimum job rule is the minimum billing unit per analysis (if you submit a smaller area, it will be rounded up to this amount). If the selected area is less than a minimum job, the request will be treated as a minimum job.
Starter package – min job 10 acres (4ha)
PROFESSIONAL package – min job 20 acres (8ha)
Example – If you request for the Water Stress analysis of an area of 8 acres with a Starter package, it will be charged $20 – 10 acres x $2.
If you have a certain number of acres on your account and you request for an analysis of an area which is bigger than the number of your free acres, only the rest of the acres will be charged according to the regular package price without the minimum job rule. After this request, the minimum job rule will apply.
Example – You have the Professional package and you have left 20 acres on your account and you request for a Plant Population report on 26 acres. The system will charge you as follows: 6 x $1.5 = $9
In case that you request for an analysis of an area bigger than your current allowed acres but which is less than 2 acres, that analysis would be charged $3.
Example – You have the Professional package and you have 20 acres left on your account and you request for a Plant Population report on 21 acres, the system will ask you to pay $3.
