Interactive online network for farmers
Est'd 2016 / 3 employees
FarmLeap is an online network for farmers. Its purpose is to share and compare technical data to improve practices thanks to collective intelligence. Farmers can choose which groups to compare, or compare their farm anonymously.
FarmLeap can also put different farmers in contact with one another if they wish to deepen their practices or discuss a particular topic. The solution is not based on big data or precision farming, but more on sharing knowledge directly between farmers and collective intelligence.The network also allows farmers to save money by comparing equipment and supply prices with other farmers.
Lastly, FarmLeap allows its users to access weather forecasts for a very specific parcel and to enter data, parcel by parcel: products used, actions, dates, collaborators involved... to optimize their management and their results.
After one year of existence, the company is starting to focus on export markets

FarmLeap is an exchange community which helps farmers to decide on their own, based on the experience of other farmers. They can contact each other, compare their practices, create groups with benchmark and data vizualisation, and easily evaluate their performance.
In France, these discussion groupes are called CETA, which translates to “Center of exchange for agricultural techniques”. Farmers are empowered to become fully aware decision makers in their farms with the help and knowledge of other farmers.
