OnFarm was founded in Fresno CA, the heart of the richest agricultural region in the world. This is where our founder learned first hand that producing a crop isn’t easy. The challenge of achieving just the right balance between plant genetics, the local environment, and management practices requires experience, hard work and more than just a little luck. We found that large volumes of raw data were available from sensors, controllers, monitors, and software applications, but may not be useful as information for making the many agronomic decisions that are required in order to be a successful.
So we got to work, pioneering the concept of building an internet-of-things platform that combines a comprehensive array of leading farm hardware technologies into a single, grower-friendly platform. OnFarm was born as a unique farm management tool that displays and analyzes data from many different sources in a single, easy-to-use application. More importantly, it turns that data into valuable information, aiding growers and their trusted advisors in making sound, science-based decisions in near real-time.
When we founded OnFarm we knew many great hardware and information companies with technologies that could really help growers. But none of them worked together. And when these systems don’t work together, no one benefits. Not the hardware companies, not the growers, and not the people that try to help growers get the most out of their crops. In response, OnFarm has established partnerships with a host of hardware technology, imagery, equipment, weather forecasting and software providers to be able to aggregate massive amounts of data for analysis. The information is available in one place, on any device, at any time and accessible only with the grower’s permission.
We embarked on building OnFarm out of a desire to create an intuitive system for growers. In the end, we built a system that also makes growers, farm managers, and landowners more money by positively impacting crop costs, quality and yields through better management of data. Crop advisors and retailers benefit because the grower benefits. Processors, packers and cooperatives can achieve greater operational efficiencies and improved raw product quality that result in improved processing yields or pack-outs through data sharing from their grower suppliers.
Thank you for your interest in OnFarm, we’re excited for what the future holds for our technology and our growers, and as always, we look forward to helping you Grow Informed.
