Building from last year’s success, the Farm Next program will be highlighted at the 2023 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., August 29-31, 2023. Pivot Bio and Farm Progress have partnered for a second year to identify new innovations in the industry and provide a voice for these startups through the program. 

This year, nine companies were selected to present their ideas to a panel of judges on the Farm Next program, currently featured on a series of special programs on RFD-TV from July 10 through August 21, 2023. Hosted by Max Armstrong, each episode features three companies – judged by a panel of three and voted on by viewers. Semi-finalists advance to another round with a deeper dive of their business, where a grand prize winner is decided, winning $50,000.

The nine companies include new technologies to improve crop management, grain drying, livestock management, manure management and more. To learn more about the startups and watch episodes, visit
