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.
The Farm Trial Program matches startups that are building new products with innovative farmers to test and provide feedback to provide a better product for our farmers. Participating startups gain access to a network of early adopters, receive critical advice, and get field trial results. Participating farmers get to help shape the future of agriculture and earn equity in high-potential startups. Opportunities are limited so, if would like to participate in the Farm Trial Program, please fill out the application to find the right match for you and one of the startups.
