The Radicle Farm is a cohort-style program that identifies start-ups who need access to trial design, agronomic support and farms in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Radicle works with entrepreneurs and farmers to assure the data generated from the trials meets the standards of farmers, institutional investors and large corporations.
By partnering with farms across two growing seasons, The Radicle Farm doubles the speed at which new ag technologies and business models can be demonstrated to secure additional funding and customers. By bringing these potentially transformational technologies to market more quickly and efficiently, The Radicle Farm helps to address some of the most pressing needs of the food system, such as food security, sustainability, supply chain transparency and resilience, and adaptation to climate change.
Radicle has signed farming partners throughout the Northern and Southern Hemispheres to support a variety of new on-farm technologies. Radicle Farming Partners have domain expertise and operations in soy, corn, cereal grains, leafy green, vegetables, almonds, pistachios, grapes, avocadoes, sugarcane, and other significant crops that make up more than 75% of the world’s calories. In addition, The Radicle Farm will manage technologies that are crop agnostic, such as digital tools, soil health, new business models, and other emerging technologies.
Radicle will conduct due diligence on each applicant, design the field trial and connect them to partner farms in both hemispheres in exchange for equity in the start-up. Successful trial outcomes will position each company to receive an investment by Radicle Growth.
The first cohort of The Radicle Farm will be launched in the Fall of 2022.
