Conservis Expands Its North American Operations to the West Coast
Company Release - 4/20/2016
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Conservis Corp., the industry leader in Enterprise Ag Management, has expanded its North American operations to the West Coast, opening an office in Salinas, California.
The new office is located in the Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology in Salinas, and enables Conservis to collaborate with a strong network of AgTech startups experts and like-minded entrepreneurs to develop solutions for growers. The office opening comes at an important time as the industry continues its rapid adoption of technologies that are generating increasing amounts of data silos; all which Conservis addresses with their enterprise ag platform.
Conservis first developed solutions for the tree nut market in 2014 working with a prominent California orchard management company, Pacific Gold Agriculture, that operates 3,000 acres of almond and other nut crops. The business problems faced by tree nut producers are similar to those Conservis has solved for row crop growers since its inception in 2009. Real time insight into day-to-day operations, resource management, harvest tracking and maximizing profitability are all added benefits tree nut growers receive when utilizing Conservis.
“Adding tree nuts to a long list of managed crop types provides functionality that growers in this region value,” said Jack Makowski, Conservis product manager. “Our platform is expanding to help growers fulfill the needs of traceability, transparency and resource optimization; all of which drive more sustainable outcomes for agriculture,” Makowski added. “Opening an office in Salinas Valley is an indication that tree nut growers are seeing tremendous value in Enterprise Ag Management.”
“Conservis has a deep history in solving the complex problems farmers face, and never before have farmers faced such intensive regulatory and marketplace demands,” said Hank Giclas, Western Growers, Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, Science & Technology. “We’re excited to work side-by-side with Conservis to address these issues and look forward to the collaborative efforts that take place at the Innovation and Technology Center.”
Based in Minneapolis, Conservis is dedicated to helping farmers as the business of farming changes. The company’s cloud-based platform offers farmers a service-centric platform to track activity, integrate to outside data, manage resources and make better decisions. Data can be shared at the farmer’s discretion with partners, landowners, funders and insurance companies. Conservis was founded in 2009 and serves farms across the U.S., Canada, Australia and Eastern Europe. To learn more, visit www.conservis.ag.
