Our Story

FarmX was founded in 2014 by a group of innovators to solve the irrigation, fertilization and water management problems plaguing California crops. Steeped in the history of California farming and with decades of experience in wireless telemetry and data systems innovation, these founders knew they could have a significant, positive impact on an industry they cared so much about. 

Pioneering Innovation

Our journey began with a vision to apply our expertise in reducing building energy consumption  to the realm of agriculture. Armed with sensors, software, and a passion for sustainable solutions, we set out to revolutionize farming through technology. The result? A series of groundbreaking innovations, including a soil moisture probe that outperforms competitors by sampling an unprecedented 200 times more soil.

Artificial Intelligence and Precision

To further elevate our solutions, we harnessed the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and proprietary algorithms. This marriage of technology allowed us to fine-tune irrigation decisions with unparalleled precision, maximizing water efficiency while ensuring optimal crop health. In 2017, we proudly introduced these advanced capabilities to our customers.

Seamless Automation

As we delved deeper into the world of agriculture, we realized that data was only part of the equation. Responding effectively to this data required automation, especially in the face of a looming labor crisis. In 2018, we seamlessly integrated an automated valve control system into our software, enabling remote and automated irrigation management.

Merging for Excellence

Recognizing the need for even more precise and scalable solutions, we took a significant step in 2019 by merging with WaterBit, pioneers in wireless micro-block water valve technology. This union empowered us to develop a fully autonomous irrigation system adaptable to fields of any size, setting new benchmarks for precision in agriculture.

A Holistic Approach

As we grew, our vision expanded. We understood that the challenges faced by our customers encompassed more than just irrigation. Labor shortages, evolving pests, diseases, and shifting regulations posed constant threats to crop production. Our software, designed initially to detect concerns in the field, evolved to identify potential issues beyond irrigation.

Merging for Progress

In 2022, FarmX achieved another milestone by merging with AutoModality, a leader in automation for robots and drones. This strategic partnership empowered us to transform our software insights into swift action, enabling us to address emerging problems before they could wreak havoc on crops.
