Our mission

Feeding Our World and Our Future
For vegetable growers who face increased growing costs and new environmental and regulatory pressures, the FarmWise suite of data-driven services harnesses plant-level data to drive precise field actions in order to streamline farm operations and increase food production efficiency.

Our vision

Growing Innovations to Empower Farmers
Summer 2016
Now
FarmWise was founded in summer 2016 by Sebastien Boyer and Thomas Palomares, long-time friends and engineers passionate about sustainability challenges. They started to imagine how the technology they used while working in MIT and Stanford Computer Science laboratories could be used to make farming drastically more efficient.
Thanks to the trust and collaborative effort of two visionary growers in California, their idea of a machine that could kill weeds without using chemicals went from a proof-of-concept to a commercialized product.
Today, our team of 70 is a mix of farming experts and technologists. Building on three successful seasons in California and Arizona as a commercial weeding service provider, we're excited to be adding new crops to our portfolio and working on breakthrough technologies that will benefit both growers and the environment.

This is our community

We're located at the heart of the U.S. Salad Bowl, in the Salinas Valley, California and Yuma, Arizona. We're very fortunate to work together with growers' associations and universities to measure our performance and guide us in our product development. We're involved in local and national events that promote agricultural technologies.
