Nov 14, 2019HarvestPort launches enhanced ‘Deals Program’ to help growers
HarvestPort, an agtech company serving both farmers and their suppliers, has launched its enhanced Deals Program, which provides weekly specials on products from HarvestPort’s exclusive network of affiliated retailers.
“How it works is that our retailers let us know in real-time what excess inventory is on hand, we agree on reduced pricing in order to move that inventory more quickly, and then our grower network receives these lower prices exclusively,” explains Heidi Burns, HarvestPort’s Head of Revenue.
Current deals include exclusive pricing on Carbine® 50WG, ChampION++ Fungicide, Chateau Herbicide SW, CottonQuik, ReTain, and Revus.
“The Deals program shows the unique position HarvestPort is in to help both sides of the ag supply chain,” notes Brian Dawson, co-founder and CEO of HarvestPort. “Based on the relationships with our retailer clients, we know what inventory they need to move and when, and then are able to immediately make reduced pricing on those products available to our growers – pretty much the definition of a ‘win-win.’”
The enhanced Deals program follows on the heels of a September launch of new service levels in its Inputs program, which helps midsize and large growers and land management organizations plan purchases, secure competitive pricing, and navigate product alternatives.
“Deals creates an opportunity for growers with smaller operations to access some of the same kinds of savings that larger-scale growers are seeing by participating in our Inputs program,” adds Burns.

According to a news release, HarvestPort connects a network of agricultural stakeholders and collaborates with them to develop strategic solutions for the challenges facing the American agricultural industry. What started in 2014 as a platform for sharing equipment has evolved into a robust agricultural marketplace that removes barriers to growth from both ends of the supply chain.
Co-founded by entrepreneurs Brian P. Dawson and Chad Hokama and based in San Francisco, HarvestPort secured a Series A funding round in 2017, which included investments from Cultivian Ventures and Taylor Farms, among others.
New service levels created to satisfy market demand originating from farming organizations of all sizes, from 500 acres to 40,000.
