Promoting Awareness and Stewardship

FieldWatch is a non-profit collaborative organization that depends on the generosity of its sponsors and members to operate our four registries. We accept membership applications from companies, organizations and individuals who want to support the continued innovation and implementation of our voluntary platform. As FieldWatch seeks to facilitate increased collaboration and communication in the agriculture community, we appreciate the support of our sponsors and members.

FieldWatch encourages all users who find value in the tools we provide to consider joining as dues-paying members. By registering, producers and beekeepers can record their sites and purchase signs, and applicators can receive email notifications about newly added sites in their defined areas. However, growers, beekeepers, seed companies and applicators can access our registries and free mapping tools, without becoming dues-paying members.

FieldWatch users who elect to join as dues-paying members receive the following benefits:

  • Recognition on the FieldWatch website (including a link to your company), in presentation materials and at events
  • Opportunity to attend the annual FieldWatch Member Meeting
  • Applicator members may receive information via live data stream
  • The opportunity to support the continued innovation and adoption of a voluntary collaboration tool that contributes to and strengthens ongoing stewardship in agriculture

Membership Resources and FAQs

As a user, it is absolutely free for producers and beekeepers to input and manage the data related to their operation. It is also free of charge for our end-users, the applicators, to access the data.  

We encourage our users to become voluntary, dues-paying members if they would like to support the continued innovation and operation of FieldWatch. The voluntary membership is a means to generate revenue from companies, organizations and individuals who want to get involved and demonstrate their support of our stewardship tool.  

Each FieldWatch state has a primary data steward and in all states to date, that person is employed with the state’s department of agriculture. These data stewards provide a key leadership role in implementing and administering the FieldWatch tool. When you register with FieldWatch, your state’s data steward will receive your request. He or she will either approve or deny this request based on the criteria for becoming a user. If problems arise while using the registry, your state’s data steward can help or direct you to someone who can answer your question. 

We can use your help in spreading the word about the importance of voluntary stewardship tools, like FieldWatch, with key stakeholders in your state. These conversations go a long way in creating momentum for a state to become involved and join the registry. It may be beneficial for grower and applicator groups, as well as individuals, to contact their state department of agriculture indicating the desire and need for such a program in their state.  

For more information to assist in your outreach, please do not hesitate to Contact Fieldwatch.
