MOLINE, Illinois (January 23, 2020) – Deere & Company today announced Fieldin has been selected to participate in its Intelligent Solutions Group’s Startup Collaborator program for 2020.
Fieldin was one of four agtech companies selected to the program, including DataFarm, FaunaPhotonics and EarthSense.
According to Deere, the program was launched last year to “enhance and deepen collaborative relationships with startup companies whose technology could add value for John Deere customers.”
“We’re excited because we already do a lot of work with John Deere, working hand-in-hand with their dealers and customers to provide an actionable data layer to their specialty crop equipment,” said Fieldin CEO Boaz Bachar. “We look forward to building on that relationship and evolving our Control Center with the help of Deere, their Intelligent Solutions Group, their tractor group and their trusted dealers.”
Founded in 2013, Fieldin’s Control Center helps specialty crop growers leverage real-time data to manage and optimize spray applications, harvest activities and other critical field activities across their operation.
“The first year of the John Deere Startup Collaborator program showed us and the startups involved the tremendous mutual value of working closely together,” said Julian Sanchez, director of strategy and business development for Deere’s Intelligent Solutions Group. “We’re excited to continue building on the program’s success.”
The Startup Collaborator provides flexibility for Deere and startups to test innovative technologies with customers and dealers without a more formal business relationship. Startups also gain affiliation with and mentoring from a world-class leader in precision agriculture.
