“Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness.”
- Thomas Jefferson
We live in a time of technology convergence. Advanced hardware and software technologies such as machine vision, machine learning, neural networks, sensors, drones, high accuracy GPS, intelligent electro-hydraulics, autonomous vehicles, and robotics allow us to create agricultural implements that were never possible, or even imaginable, in years past. TerraClear designs agricultural implements utilizing advanced technology.
Labor is a key input in crop production. It is best suited to high value, complex tasks. Though picking rock is necessary and important, generally it is a manual, low-skill, mundane, and repetitive task. TerraClear frees today's farmer to focus on high value production and management activities.
Agricultural producers do more, with more. They grow more crop. They use bigger machines. They operate at higher speeds. When a big machine operating at high speed hits a rock, the damage done can stop the harvest in its tracks. Today's farmer can't afford that kind of damage to their equipment, production goals, and timelines. Optimal ground conditions are important. TerraClear ensures fields that are free of rock and the damage it can cause.
Farmers invest in equipment that accomplishes the job for which it is designed. It must be reliable. It must be easily and efficiently maintained. It must be cost effective. TerraClear designs and builds rock clearance implements that produce rock-free fields at a reasonable cost.
We are a unique team of seasoned entrepreneurs, farm & ranch operators, software and machine vision technologists, and farm equipment innovators. We see in agriculture a huge market with a large opportunity for improved production technology.
In TerraClear we get to combine our passion for agriculture with our experience in advanced technology.
We get to work with our family and friends, bound together by a shared passion and history in successful farms and companies.
“Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field.”
- Dwight Eisenhower
