Help Make Farming Easier

fieldmargin is helping farmers around the world make better decisions.

The farming software industry just starting its revolution. We are making helpful, simple, mobile software to help farmers spend more time farming. The product has generated considerable early interest. The two co-founders have grown several successful multi-million pound businesses between them.

fieldmargin is a cloud-based mapping and note recording system, specifically developed in response to industry-wide frustrations with the antiquated and expensive solutions already on offer. The product provides a simple and flexible way for farmers, agronomists, operators and accountants to record, analyse and share farm information. We have overcome significant technical hurdles to create an application that works both online and offline in the field. In the UK, 71% of land is farmland, farming employs almost 500,000 people and yet most software for farmers is delivered on compact disc and data is held locally on desktop machines. Globally 1.4bn people are directly employed in the agriculture industry. In the next 40 years the world will have to produce more food than it has done in the previous 8000. We are doing something in an enormous industry, we are doing something hard, and if we get it right the world will benefit. fieldmargin, mobile-first, design-led and cloud-based, has already generated significant interest from all corners of the farm world. We are a very friendly team, our people are happy.
