Grower Testimonial: Providing Del Mar Farms with Actionable Data for Managing Multiple Locations

When Zach Maring of Del Mar Farms reached out to Fieldin in May 2019, he was looking for a remote farm management platform that helped improve their orchard operations stretching across Stanislaus and Fresno counties.

In all, Del Mar Farms grows more than 20 crops (everything from almonds to zucchini) from Westley to Firebaugh, Calif., and also runs integrated picking, packing and shipping enterprises.

Fieldin helps provide Del Mar’s team visibility into its multiple orchard operations, utilizing its smart spraying, harvesting and cultural practices modules to track activities throughout the season.

“The Fieldin platform provides my team the real-time data needed to manage multiple operations and locations continually,” Maring said.

Fieldin’s Control Center equips managers with actionable data for mechanized cultural practices, spray applications and harvesting activities. And managers receive that actionable data in real-time, improving operational efficiencies from anywhere using its user-friendly mobile and web apps.

“Fieldin allows management to evaluate the quality of work performed in farm operations,” Maring added, “with detailed statistics to analyze performance and maximize employee and equipment efficiencies.”

Fieldin complements its platform with customized reporting, alerts and a dedicated grower support representative who trains staff and customizes the platform to the grower’s unique operational needs.

“The information and support Fieldin has provided my farm has exceeded my expectations,” Maring concluded.

Fieldin CEO Presenting at Virtual Summit on AgTech

Fieldin is excited to be presenting at the 2020 Virtual Summit on AgTech, an online conference that runs May 5-7.

CEO Boaz Bachar will be presenting on the “Importance of remote farm management and actionable data to today’s specialty crop farmers.” The presentation will run Wednesday between 4:15 – 4:45 p.m. Eastern.

“We’re looking forward to presenting at the event because real-time data and remote farm management have never been more important to the agriculture industry,” Bachar said. “Especially here in California, in the specialty crop market, growers need remote transparency into their daily field operations. They need data, and they need that data now, in real-time. And that data needs to be easy to use, and it needs to be actionable. That’s where solutions like ours are really coming into play and helping improve visibility on the farm.”

The event’s focus is on expanding access to trends and issues in agriculture and technology and is hosted by the Center for Private Equity and Venture Capital at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

All contributions from registrations will be donated to non-profit partners Feeding America and the National Young Farmers Coalition.

Fieldin Secures $12M Investment to Fuel Growth

Led by Zeev Ventures, investment will be used to expand company’s all-in-one farm management platform for specialty crop growers
FRESNO, Calif. (Sept. 5, 2019) – Fieldin, which has developed an all-in-one farm management platform that helps specialty crop growers optimize all of their field operations, has secured $12 million in financing to fuel company growth and expand its precision agriculture technology.

The Series A investment was led by Zeev Ventures, a Silicon Valley-based venture fund managed by Oren Zeev, who has backed companies such as Houzz, Audible, Chegg, TripActions, and others that are re-defining their respective industries.

Also participating in the round are Cavallo Ventures, the venture capital arm of Wilbur-Ellis, AgFunder, an online venture capital firm using technology and media to support its investments, and existing investors Germin8 Ventures, Gal Ventures and Terra Venture Partners.

Founded in 2013, Fieldin’s farm management platform seamlessly enables visibility across an operation’s complete range of field data (from tractors, machinery and other in-field sensors) in a single, user-friendly dashboard. This smart farm control center provides managers with actionable data that improves planning, manages risk and maximizes production across all operations and activities. From its award-winning smart spraying module, to its new smart harvesting app, Fieldin’s smart tools have helped transform some of the world’s largest growers into efficient, data-driven operations.

“With the backing and experience of some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley and commercial agriculture, this investment will allow us to put the pedal to the metal and ramp up our innovation and continue to lead the market in both adoption and results,” said Fieldin CEO and Co-Founder Boaz Bachar. “This will allow us to get our data-driven tools in the hands of more growers and stakeholders throughout the supply chain, which will benefit everyone from the boots on the ground to the consumer, and all of the various partners they work with along the way. We look forward to seeing just how far we can take our technology.”

Fieldin’s latest round of funding comes on the heels of rapid revenue growth (more than 300% since the beginning of the year) and customer adoption in the fruit, nuts and vegetable markets.
Fieldin is changing agriculture as we know it,” Zeev said. “The Fieldin team has created a world-class platform that is already the go-to control center for commercial growers. I’m excited to help fuel their growth and be part of this technology revolution we’re experiencing in agriculture.”
The new capital will be used to support the company’s rapid growth: tripling its sales, grower support and technical teams in the U.S., and expanding its R&D team and product development efforts out of its engineering and data science headquarters in Israel.

“It’s been a big year for our company, covering more than 300,000 acres in California alone, and we’re just getting started,” said Fieldin COO and Co-Founder Iftach Birger.

“We’ve been working tirelessly to launch new products before, after and even during the season for our growers. This harvest season, for example, we’re pushing new updates to our platform nearly every day to ensure our growers can optimize every piece of the harvesting process.

“This investment will allow us to move quicker and provide our customers with the technology, ROI and service they’ve come to expect from the Fieldin team.”

The investment is another highlight in a banner year for Fieldin, which recently opened a new office in Fresno and won the 2019 AgFunder Innovation Award in the Farm Tech category for its smart harvesting and spraying technology.

“We like Fieldin’s control center for a number of reasons,” said Amar Singh, Director of Strategic Investments for Cavallo Ventures. “For example, as a grower, how do you know if the agronomic recommendation was carried out as written during a spray event? Whether it’s for spraying, harvesting, or other cultural practices, Fieldin provides the transparency that solidifies trust between a grower and agronomist. Now everyone has objective evidence about what has happened in the field.”

Q&A with Fieldin CEO Boaz Bachar

There are now countless precision ag platforms that promise farmers smarter application of inputs, more accurate planting and harvesting windows, and better management of labor and other resources. But one chief complaint among farmers about agtech is that the creators often don’t understand enough about the day-to-day grind of farming.
Our company was started by growers for growers, so we worked directly with farmers early on to address the pain points they were seeing in the field,” Fieldin CEO Boaz Bachar told AgFunderNews. “It seems like common sense, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard startups talk about growers and farming like a foreign concept. The agriculture industry was here long before we were, and will be here long after.”
Using data analytics and artificial intelligence, FieldIn analyzes geospatial, chemical, biological, weather and other data to help growers plan their pesticide applications and then monitor them in real time to spot any errors in the application. The startup targets commercial-scale fruit, nut, and vegetable growers as well as application subcontractors who produce at least 1,000 acres. Some of their clients have tens of thousands of acres under management.

Fieldin won the Most Innovative US Startup Pre-Series A category for AgFunder’s 2019 Innovation Awards among a shortlist of startups nominated by the award’s committee, a who’s who in agri-foodtech venture capital.
