CropSafe is building an operating system for the millions of farms that feed the world’s population.

A few words from our Founders!

We have a few things going on behind the scenes that we can’t talk about just yet, but if you keep an eye on our blog, you’ll probably be one of the first to hear. At CropSafe, we’ve decided to grow the team from the small distributed one we are, adding a few more remote and in-person hires over the next few months.

As we grow CropSafe, we’ve decided to focus on building around farming communities. Farmers are already engaging in their local communities and economies. Sharing knowledge and passing on information from one farmer to the next is at the industry’s core. That can be the passing down of farming techniques through generations or neighbors, crop consultants, or agronomists sharing knowledge with farmers to help increase their crop production.

This knowledge sharing already takes place on a small scale; we want to enable this on a larger scale and see how and if we can transfer techniques across industries.
