Company Release - 03/12/19
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (March 12, 2019) - Conservis, the global leader in enterprise farm management software, is honored to make SVG Partners’ “THRIVE Top 50” rankings—recognized in the Cloud Services/SAAS category—for a third consecutive year. This annual ranking of 50 leading Ag Tech companies highlights the best in agriculture technology around the globe.
As global population growth and environmental pressures have created a surging demand for land, water, and production, farmers are faced with the growing challenge to manage their resources efficiently and accountably. Meanwhile, consolidation, generational shifts, and access to technology are setting the stage for a new approach, one that can handle economies of scale and get more out of every acre and every dollar spent. For over a decade, Conservis has helped family and institutional farms transform the efficiency, productivity, and profitability of their enterprise.
“Being recognized with the THRIVE award for three years in a row is truly an honor as it reflects our commitment to help solve the problems that matter to producers,” says Conservis Founder and Executive Vice President, Patrick Christie. “The farm ecosystem is rapidly changing, and we believe the farmer should be in a position of power. Reliable, accurate, real-time business information is the essential advantage.”
The Conservis solution continues to add functionality that addresses critical needs for farming operations. Entering the 2019 farming season, the top two digital clouds in agriculture have been integrated into our independent platform, providing valuable farm and field economic insight, and a significantly improved customer experience. With the ability to automatically integrate as-applied production and harvest data directly from Climate FieldView™ and John Deere Operations Center, Conservis enables growers to manage costs and inventory levels as well as understand what drives field profitability.
Furthermore, since its launch of a permanent crop platform for tree nut orchards in 2017, Conservis has expanded its capabilities to fit additional permanent crop types such as citrus and grapes. With its legacy strength in commodity row crops and an understanding of the unique needs of permanent crop growers, Conservis’s comprehensive offering leads the industry in functionality.
Finally, Rabo AgriFinance and Conservis recently announced a partnership that marks the next evolution in how farms can utilize ag data to make informed business decisions. The companies have partnered to co-develop technology that makes it possible for growers to seamlessly – and nearly effortlessly – connect their real-time field and management data with financial results.
“Market forces are accelerating the adoption of farm management solutions, and given the strength of our team, our product advancements, and partnerships we expect a year of remarkable growth” remarked Christie.

The top startups are scouted for exemplary leadership, technology and traction, and selected based on alignment with specific organizational criteria and industry pain points outlined by SVG Partners corporate sponsors: Trimble, Wells Fargo, Coca Cola, Driscoll’s Berries, DuPont Pioneer, City of Salinas, Land O’Lakes, Yamaha, Verizon and others.
