The AgLaunch Farmer Network connects farmers with startup companies and specialty crop opportunities to beta test ideas, offer feedback, and ultimately increase farm efficiencies and earning power. The AgLaunch Farmer Network members collaborate with entrepreneurs to test innovative pre-commercial technologies and specialty crops on their farms.
AgLaunch Farmer Network members provide multi-year field trials to help scale new technologies and vertical integration opportunities. Field trials are coordinated by the professional staff of agronomists at AgLaunch and can include small scale plot work through thousands of acres across multiple crops, soil types, climate zones, and production systems including livestock and specialty crops.
The Data Commons will speed the time to market and increase likelihood of success for early stage agricultural startups, by giving them access to aggregated data from across multiple farmers that are part of AgLaunch Farmer Network.
