Who We Are

FieldWatch is a non-profit company whose mission is to develop and provide free mapping tools intended to enhance communications that promote awareness and environmental stewardship activities between crop producers, beekeepers, seed companies and pesticide applicators. Originally designed by Purdue University Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department with input and support from Purdue University Cooperative Extension, FieldWatch quickly evolved into a national collaborative.

Balanced Stakeholder Representation 

A major priority of FieldWatch is maintaining balanced stakeholder representation on the board of directors. We also seek to develop a stewardship tool that is acceptable and brings value to all stakeholders. To ensure this balance, the FieldWatch board consists of four groups: Producers (growers and beekeepers), Applicators, Manufacturers and At-Large. Purdue University also maintains a permanent ex-officio position on the board of directors.
