Company Release – 1/31/2018

MINNEAPOLIS, MN– Conservis, the global leader in farm management systems, is honored to make SVG Partners’ “THRIVE Top 50” rankings—recognized in the Cloud Services/SAAS category—for a second consecutive year. This annual ranking of 50 leading Ag Tech companies highlights the best in agriculture technology around the globe.

In today’s environment of low commodity prices and rising input costs, farmers need every advantage possible to succeed. For nearly a decade, Conservis’s farm management system has helped farmers achieve greater control over their operations, improve efficiency and use their farm data to make more profitable decisions.

“The THRIVE award is another milestone in our mission to advance the business of agriculture,” said Conservis CEO Sherman Black. “We work hand-in-hand with our clients and partners to provide the operating system at the center of the agriculture ecosystem, facilitating holistic, outcome-based solutions and supporting increased profitability per acre for farmers.”

The Conservis solution continues to add functionality that addresses what matters for farming operations. In 2017, the company gave customers a more precise understanding of costs and the resulting economic impacts, while at the same time eliminating the pain of manual data entry. Conservis now integrates as-applied machine data directly from John Deere Operations Center and Climate FieldView™. Conservis also updated its user interface and streamlined navigation to make the system even easier to use.

Additionally, Conservis introduced functionality for tree nut orchards in 2017. Together with existing permanent crop functionality and the company’s legacy strength in commodity row crops, Conservis’s comprehensive offering leads the industry in functionality.

The company also added key hires in 2017 to strengthen engineering and commercial competency. “Our investments have delivered a year of remarkable growth, and our success is a direct result of our world-class team, customers and partners,” remarked Black. “Our many new partnerships and THRIVE Top 50 recognition are further indication we’re doing the right things.”

The THRIVE Top 50 ranks the leading Ag Tech companies around the globe, honoring companies exemplifying the best in agriculture innovation. 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.
