Ep. 40: Farming as a Service with Craig Rupp of Sabanto Ag



We have talked a lot on this podcast about the future of agriculture and how automation will impact what that future might look like. In Episode 40 of Precision Points, Craig Rupp, CEO of Sabanto Ag, shares how their company is executing on autonomous farming today.


Back in Episode 37, Scott Shearer said the phrase “farming as a service” – something I hadn’t heard before. To help us learn more, he pointed us toward Craig and the work Sabanto Ag is doing.


“I started Sabanto Ag and the first thing that I wanted to do was take autonomy into agriculture,” Craig said. “I knew that, if I provided a service, the adoption of [autonomy] would increase or it would gain momentum.”


So he dug in. In 2019, Craig bought an 18-row planter, got his commercial driver’s license (CDL) to move his planter and spent the winter writing code to make it run on its own. By learning a lot and acquiring some additional funding, Craig was able to hire a small team to really get the wheels in motion. As he did, he noticed he inherited the problems that come with only being able to move equipment with CDL operators and opted to move to smaller equipment that could be moved more efficiently with a ¾ ton truck. He broke down his planter into four- or five-row planters to attach to the smaller tractors and, by the spring of 2020, was planting in Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and Illinois with these small, autonomous rigs.


“At the time, we were autonomous. But for every unit that was out in the field, I had a dedicated engineer monitoring that, watching it like a hawk, looking at down-force planter population. We're monitoring everything with the tractor’s GPS quality, RTK,” said Craig. “And it was very hard and tough to monitor these, each one independently.”


With more practice, experience and a lot of iterations, the development team was able to build confidence in the equipment and decrease monitoring time. If the machinery notices any anomalies, it pauses or shuts down. For instance, if the tractor loses GPS signal, it will pause operation and wait 15 minutes. If the signal is not regained, it will kill the engine. Once everything is corrected, all of the equipment can be remotely started with the fail-safes pre-programmed.


“This last spring (2021), we ran multiple rigs and multiple fields across multiple states doing multiple field operations,” Craig started. “We ran two units cultivating. They ran 48 hours nonstop. We had to stop them for fuel, but the engines ran 48 hours straight– all being monitored remotely by my team in Chicago.”


Currently, Sabanto offers all sorts of in-field applications with the exception of harvesting, but Craig said their goal is to be a full-service farming-as-a-service operation including harvesting down the road.


“Right now, we can do primary tillage; we can do field cultivating; we can do high-speed tillage and turbo tillage. We've done planting, both corn and soybeans and soon to be cotton, rotary hoed,” said Craig. “We've time-weighted; we've cultivated thousands of acres and harvest is next. I want to be full-stack, being capable of providing any farming operation to a farmer.”


The possibilities are endless when you talk to Craig about autonomous farming. It can help growers bridge the gap we see with finding seasonal labor, helping them outsource some of their more mundane tasks to autonomous tractors.

Speaker 1 (00:03):

Welcome to Precision Points, an agtech podcast, where we plant seeds of innovation to inspire informed decisions about precision technology and its impact for growers like you. We explore precision ag tools and technology from the soil to the sky with your host Morgan Seger.


Morgan Seger (00:22):

Welcome back to Precision Points an agtech podcast from precisionagreviews.com. I'm your host Morgan Seger, and in each episode, we strive to bring you unbiased agtech information and ideas. Today on the show I'm joined by CEO of Sabanto Ag, Craig Rupp. Now, if you are a regular listener to the Precision Points podcast, you might have recognized this name from the interview I did with Scott Shearer. So back in episode 37, as I was wrapping up our conversation about artificial intelligence in agriculture, Scott mentioned the work that Craig was doing and the work that they're doing with Sabanto as some of the most innovative and exciting work that Scott has seen in the industry. So of course, after that wonderful introduction, I reached out to Craig and he agreed to come on the show and talk through farming as a service. Now, Craig has a very interesting background. So we talk about some of his history and things he's developed that a lot of you might have on your farm today and how that background has led him to autonomy in agriculture.


Morgan Seger (01:24):

All right. Welcome back to Precision Points. Today on the show I'm joined by Craig Rupp, the CEO of Sabanto Ag. Craig, welcome to the show.


Craig Rupp (01:32):

Welcome. Thank you as well, Morgan.


Morgan Seger (01:36):

I'm really looking forward to our conversation today. I love asking people about their background, because it helps me understand how they've got to where they are today. And I have heard that you have a very extensive background of doing interesting things. So would you mind kicking us off by sharing some of your history and kind of the work you've been doing?


Craig Rupp (01:56):

So I grew up on a farm in Cherokee, Iowa, Northwest corner of Iowa. And growing up, I thought I was cursed having grown up on a farm. And then, when I graduated high school, I decided farming wasn't for me. I always laugh with my brother just saying that, "I was the spare not the heir." I went down a different path. I decided to become an electrical engineer. So I went to Iowa State and got electrical engineering degree and I was obsessed with wireless communications. And I went to work for Motorola in Chicago. And that's what really I guess, throughout my career, I've always had one foot in the Chicago area. And I worked on GSM, which is a European digital standard cellular system. And then I transferred over to Iridium, which is a satellite-based communications. And I worked there until oh, 1995, and I decided myself and two other guys decided that we're going to go out and start a company called the Alliance Technologies Group. And we ran that until about 2002. We were no more than a type of consulting and contracting company.


Craig Rupp (03:13):

2002, the economy went to hell and we shut that down and then I married my high school sweetheart. And the two of us decided that we're going to move back to Iowa. Then I took a job with John Deere. So I kept getting pulled back into agriculture. And then, I worked on the StarFire receiver and the Greenstar display for John Deere. And then I left John Deere and went back to consulting and I rekindled Alliance Technologies Group and started consulting again in the wireless industry. And then, I started developing test management software for high volume RF manufacturers. And I was all over the world. And my company got acquired by National Instruments out of Austin, Texas. And then for nine years, I subsequently, I was all over the world working in high volume manufacturing plants. And I really loved that. It was, it was really interesting work.


Craig Rupp (04:18):

And then, I met a friend of mine and I decided that we're going to start an agriculture company called 640 Labs. And that was the 2013 timeframe. And we created at the time, it was called the 640 Drive, which was a little device that plugs into tractors and communicates all the data back into an iPad. And we were acquired in 2014 by Monsanto and they put us underneath Climate Corporation. And so, I spent four years at Climate and then I decided I wanted to move, do something unique. And I decided that I want to take autonomy into agriculture. And so, here I am-


Morgan Seger (05:03):

Very cool.


Craig Rupp (05:05):

Founded Sabanto.


Morgan Seger (05:05):

So I have a couple of followup questions for you. First of all, as you were traveling and working across the world, do you have a favorite place you went?


Craig Rupp (05:15):

In Europe, Munich. I thought Munich was, it's an absolutely charming city. And I happened to be there during October Fest, which by the way is in September. And it was the most amazing place I've ever been to. Asia, it would have to be Singapore. I spent a lot of time in Singapore. It's really just a beautiful city and really nice people. I've been to Israel. Israel is phenomenal. Been to Brazil. I've been all throughout Europe, Asia and South America, North America, loved Canada too. Been at all 50 states. Everyone except Alaska here in the U.S.. So I've been a lot of corners of the world. However, I've been to Paris nine times, if you can believe that. I've never seen the Eiffel Tower.


Morgan Seger (06:15):

Seriously?


Craig Rupp (06:16):

Yeah. I would get to Paris and then get carted off to a manufacturing plant outside of Paris. And I never had the time to get there.


Morgan Seger (06:26):

Maybe you can put that on the list there.


Craig Rupp (06:29):

I have seen, I've been to a lot of places, but it's rare that I get a chance to go see some of the local sites. However, the funny story was I was in a taxi or a cab, or I had a driver who was taking me from Heathrow Airport to a little town called Bournemouth. And so, I'm sitting in this cab and we come over this hill and I looked to the right and I'm like, "Oh my God, it's Stonehenge." Now I have seen Stonehenge and I have no idea it's out in the middle of nowhere in the UK. And so, I have seen Stonehenge.


Morgan Seger (07:10):

Well, there you go. And isn't it funny to think that taxi driver probably drives past it all the time and doesn't even think twice about it anymore, but you got a nice surprise that day.


Craig Rupp (07:21):

Yeah. It's interesting. You go to these places and Bournemouth is, it's 20 minutes from Stonehenge and I asked the guys, "Hey, one of these nights, can we go to Stonehenge? I want to go see it." And they're like, "Oh, we've never been there."


Morgan Seger (07:37):

Oh really?


Craig Rupp (07:38):

Yeah. And then, I go to Seattle, the Space Needle. I go there and everyone who lives in Seattle has never been to the Space Needle. So people, they take for granted things around in their local community.


Morgan Seger (07:56):

Yeah, for sure. Well, that's interesting. And I think it gives us some perspective too, on the different things you've seen, even just within agriculture, just driving through the country, in those different places. So it's very interesting to me that you got to work on some of the legacy John Deere monitors, and then it kind of took what you had experienced there and realized a need for us to use, I guess, telematics, if that's the right word, to get that data that we're collecting on an iPad and in a usable way. So the instrument you talked about from 640 Labs, that's what a lot of us would call the hockey puck, the thing we use to get our information from the tractor into our iPad so we can use it to make decisions, right?


Craig Rupp (08:38):

That's exactly what it is. And at the time it was kind of funny, because that was my brother just bought a John Deere 8R and I just happened to notice there this diagnostic plug on his tractor. And I knew that all the CAN bus information is on that plug. And then it just, it dawned on me, I'm like, "If I could..." So, it all started, well, let's just go back a little bit. It all started because, I was in the wireless industry in manufacturing plants. So I was at Foxconn and working with Apple and I just saw this iPad and I worked on the 2630 or the 2600 display for Deere and I just thought it, so I'm like, "Why aren't farmers using this?" And then, I met my friend snowmobiling in the UP. We would do that every year. And I told him that, he and I were both entrepreneurs. And I said, "I think we ought to start a company in agriculture using an iPad, instead of a 2600 display.


Craig Rupp (09:51):

And then I saw that plug and I'm like, "Okay, I got to get that data from that plug somehow, some way up to the iPad." And then, Bluetooth, everyone knows how to pair up Bluetooth. And I wanted to make it, at the time, we made these decisions, which were defining moments. It was okay, everyone knows how to pair Bluetooth. So we're going to use the Bluetooth and its frequency hopping, spread spectrum. And I thought, "This is the ideal method of getting that data up there." And then it went from there. It was kind of interesting times.


Morgan Seger (10:33):

I can imagine it is. And you were solving a huge problem. I don't know necessarily what all you were after, but I know working with growers before and after that, there was such more recovery of data and use of data. We had been collecting stuff for a long time, but there was a big disconnect in what actually came out of the monitor and what we actually got to use where now it all just seems so much more accessible. So for me, that was solving a huge problem.


Craig Rupp (11:02):

Yeah. And it was like, we were leveraging everything that is commercially available. You look at an iPad and it's got just, it has cellular connectivity. So, and it had wifi and just incredible graphics, incredible processing power, incredible memory, and there were accessories for it. And it just, it just seemed like a good idea at the time. And, I didn't realize as to what it was going to turn into, but at the time it seemed like a good idea. And my friend, I mean, he did not grow up on a farm and he was not familiar with agriculture to that extent. He and I just, we started starting companies and it took me about two years of snowmobiling to convince him that, the next company we make is agriculture. We need to do something in ag. And so, that was over a lot of beers discussing that.


Morgan Seger (12:12):

Well, hey, I'm glad you got to where you were. And now today you are the CEO of Sabanto. And the reason I heard about this was I had a conversation with Scott Shearer on the podcast a couple episodes ago. And he talked to me about farming as a service. So at the end of every episode, we always ask our guests, what is one technology they're most excited about? And he said, the work you're doing and Sabanto. So can you tell us what is Sabanto Ag?


Craig Rupp (12:38):

Side note, I am Scott Shearer's biggest fan. Some of the work he's doing is absolutely amazing. And I have a lot of respect for him. So I started Sabanto Ag and the first thing, what I wanted to do was I wanted to take autonomy into agriculture. And I knew that if I provided a service, then I felt that the adoption of it would increase or it would gain momentum as doing it as a service. So I started in the spring of 2019, and I went and leased a JCB 4220, and I went out and bought, I'd never in my wildest dreams, I would imagine that I would go out and buy a planter, but I bought an 18 row 20 inch planter. And the idea was, we're going to go out in the spring of 2019, and we're going to start planting autonomously. So, I went and got a CDL because, someone has to drive this tractor and this planter, load it on a semi, drive it from state to state. And then, we spent all winter writing software.


Craig Rupp (13:57):

So we went out and we planted in Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Illinois and Indiana. And we learned a lot as to, what are some of the hurdles, what are some of the challenges that we're faced with? So in 2019, I got funded by Beta Collective and Cavallo and BioCrossroads out of Indianapolis and went back to Chicago and I hired four guys that I thought could help me pull this off. And the first thing we did was we looked at the problem, especially with a lot of problems we had in the spring. To haul this equipment around, I need a CDL, I need a person with a CDL. And I looked at it like farmers were complaining with lack of labor. And they're also complaining about a lack of a... These people have to have a CDL and I looked at it like, I'm not solving the problem, I'm inheriting the problem. So that was really the decision of going with smaller equipment.


Craig Rupp (15:10):

And it was pretty costly for me to lease this 220-horsepower tractor. And we went smaller. We went with these little Kubota tractors and it turns out, you can lease them for next to nothing. They're fairly cheap. And so, what I did was I built a fleet of four five-year-old planters, and we went and chopped up that 18 row into, and we made four or five row planters, bought two more row units and sure enough, these little 60-horsepower tractors can pull them. And now what I can do is I can load them on a three-quarter ton truck and move them very efficiently. And so, we went out in the spring of 2020, and we started planting autonomously with these four little rigs. And again, we were in Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Illinois. And we deployed three at once in one field. And then we came back and we learned quite a lot.


Craig Rupp (16:23):

Mechanically, I think we were there. There was a lot of software that needed to be developed. At the time we were autonomous. But for every unit that was out in the field, I had a dedicated engineer monitoring that, watching it like a hawk, looking at down-force planter population, we're monitoring everything with the tractor GPS quality, RTK was up. And it was very hard and tough to monitor these, each one independently. So we came back, after, flustered the spring of 2020. And it was interesting, probably the best thing we've ever done was these organic growers came out of the woodwork and they were asking us if we had the capability of cultivating, which we certainly could cultivate. So we went out and we started cultivating. And the interesting thing about cultivating was this one farmer, he wanted his field cultivated five times, every 10 days. We went out the first time and obviously we had a lot of problems and the software guys there, they were responsible for in 10 days from now, you need to fix this, this, this and this. And they fixed that and then things got better.


Craig Rupp (17:48):

And we went out and implanted again, things got better. And we did that five times. We had five iterations. And by the fifth iteration, I'm like, "Hey, things are looking pretty good." And then that fall, we went and got some 90-horsepower Kubota tractors, and we started doing tillage. And then, I finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel, because we were tilling and we went 37 hours straight farming as a service for a local farmer here near Harvard, Illinois, just west of Chicago. And that was something we could hang our hat on. We're finally at a point now where these things can run hours and hours and hours. And then, it was interesting this last spring we went out and we started taking over some major acres for farmers in particular, I'll give one example. There was 1,000 acre farmer and we rototilled, that was his primary tillage. Then we field cultivated, we planted, we time-weighted, rotary hoed. And then, we cultivated multiple passes, all autonomously, all 1,000 acres for this farmer.


Craig Rupp (19:07):

And we ran multiple rigs. This last spring, we ran multiple rigs and multiple fields across multiple states doing multiple field operations. And we ran two units cultivating. They ran 48 hours nonstop. We had to stop them for fuel, but the engines ran 48 hours straight, these two little tractors and all being monitored remotely by my team in Chicago.


Morgan Seger (19:36):

Okay. So that was what I was going to ask. What is this monitoring or supervision of the equipment look like now that, you started with constant, watching every single move they make. What does that look like now?


Craig Rupp (19:49):

So now our systems are smart enough where if they detect any anomalies, they do one of two things. They either pause or they kill themselves. And it all comes down to, if we're monitoring, let's say we're monitoring GPS. And if we lose GPS, we pause. And it'll sit there for up to 15 minutes. And if it doesn't get GPS back, it'll just shut it down, it'll shut down. And we can remote start them, but they pause. And once it gets GPS back, then it'll take off and continue. And we do that with various, there's various things we monitor, and we've gotten really good at monitoring, the state of the engine, the state of the hydraulics, the state of our navigation, accuracy, and there are certain instances where it's game over, we kill the system. And then there's other detection processes that what we do is we just pause. And we get the alerts we use off the shelf, we use Slack. I don't know if you've ever used Slack, but it's kind of think of it as text messages on steroids and all our tractors have a Slack channel that they post to.


Craig Rupp (21:14):

And then we get notifications if there's any anomalies or if a system stopped or for any particular reason.


Morgan Seger (21:22):

Gotcha. And then when you are using these pieces of equipment for cultivation, are you using any sort of vision guidance? Are you mostly just using your GPS to keep you in the right row?


Craig Rupp (21:35):

Right now we're using GPS, but we are augmenting that with imagery.


Morgan Seger (21:41):

Okay. And another tactical question on your planter, what type of precision ag tools do you have? Are they able to still do like variable rate seeding and those types of things? Or what kind of comes set on the planter?


Craig Rupp (21:57):

Okay. So our planters are Harvest International row units, and they have precision planting, seed meters and down-force. And this last spring, we were prescription planting and it was actually a high resolution prescription planting. And we also have swath control as well, that we have absolute control over that planter.


Morgan Seger (22:26):

So when you think of farming as a service compared to, the grower traditionally owning and operating their own equipment, what do you think the biggest changes or shifts in mindset growers will have to make to be able to use this and still... I guess, where do you see the growers fitting in if they make this shift?


Craig Rupp (22:53):

So let me give you an example of, the farm we're on right now. Harvest is starting, and he is working diligently with his entire labor crew, getting the crops out of the field and into the bin. He wishes he had additional laborers in order to perform tillage. But unfortunately, it's just the tyranny of the urgent. All his people are either running combines, running grain carts or trucking, and he has to dedicate some people to tillage. And what's nice as it stands today, we're doing that tillage for him. And so, now he can dedicate his labor pool to, what he thinks is more important tasks. And normally what he does is they harvest as fast as they can and then they try to do as much tillage as they possibly can before the frost keeps them from doing that. And so, we provide a valuable, we're an extension of his labor force. And we're using autonomy for that.


Morgan Seger (24:10):

Do you see any hurdles that growers would have to get over or things that you guys are trying to work around to make it work for growers as they are today?


Craig Rupp (24:22):

We're working with the growers and I've always said, "You know what? We'll come out and we'll start. And if you think we're doing a good enough job, we'll continue. And if you don't think we're doing a good job, then that's fine, I'm fine with that." So I think I can do as good if not better job than what they're currently doing.


Morgan Seger (24:46):

Sure. So harvesting. Do you anticipate you'll get to where you'll be doing any harvesting autonomously?


Craig Rupp (24:53):

Yes. Yeah. I want to be a full stack. Right now, we can do primary tillage, we can do field cultivating, we can do a high-speed tillage, turbo tillage. We've done planting, both corn and soybeans, soon to be cotton, rotary hoed, we've time-weighted, we've cultivated thousands of acres and harvest is next. I want to be a full stack, being capable of providing any farming operation to a farmer. And sensors thing. The other thing you learned, you would think, this is me being naive. I thought, hey, once we get this tractor running and navigating, the tractor is like the Swiss army knife in agriculture. It's got a three-point hitch, hydraulics, the transmission it's a Swiss army knife, and it's going to be easy to time weed once we plant. And it turns out that, there's a lot of aspects that are different, that became apparent to me, after we got done planting, we were started cultivating and you just open up a whole bunch of different problems, doing those types of field operations.


Morgan Seger (26:15):

Gotcha. Yeah. I'm excited about that, because I mean, planting, we're always really excited, harvest, we're always really excited, but we get to the point of the season where, and I see this on farms all over the place, they've just been running for so long that they're tired and they could make mistakes or they could get injured. And having something there to help them offset some of that workload, I think, could be huge for the overall health and safety of the farmers really.


Craig Rupp (26:42):

Exactly, and that's really what we're focused on is trying to, some of these mundane tasks, trying to automate them and make it easier for farmers to perform their field operations.


Morgan Seger (27:00):

Yeah. So is there meaning in the name Sabanto?


Craig Rupp (27:05):

Yeah. At the time when I was thinking of a name, I was kind of obsessed with the word Atari. I thought it was kind of a cool word. And the Japanese language has some fairly interesting words and it's Japanese for "servant". And I viewed it as these tractors are really servants to the growers.


Morgan Seger (27:35):

Very cool. That's really interesting. So if someone is listening and would like to learn more about Sabanto Ag or possibly use some of your services, where would you suggest they go?


Craig Rupp (27:46):

Okay. So if you want to see what we're doing, the best place to see that is on Twitter @sabantoag, or if you go to our website, it's, sabantoag.com.


Morgan Seger (27:59):

Okay. And I have been to your website, it's a very unique website, at least at the way we are recording today. So for those listening, you kind of get to say who you are and what you're looking for, and then someone will follow up on the interest you have in the company. So I think that's kind of unique.


Craig Rupp (28:16):

Yeah. We're trying to be a little stealthy, but yet, intriguing, but we have a pretty good Twitter following. If you really want to see what we're up to it's there.


Morgan Seger (28:28):

That's where to go. Okay. Well, we'll link out to that in the show notes, for sure, so people can follow along. And then, the one question I always like to wrap up with is if there's one technology that you are most excited about and it can be in or outside of agriculture?


Craig Rupp (28:41):

The technology I'm most excited about? I would probably say the artificial intelligence. If I look at what some people are doing, I think that is probably going to be the next technical innovations are going to come from that. And we are working on that by the way, trying to improve some of the farming operations or the field operations by using artificial intelligence. But I see that expanding, and I'm really excited as to where that'll go.


Morgan Seger (29:20):

Sure. I think that it could have a huge fit in autonomous vehicles in the stuff that you guys are doing now, just helping navigate some of those infield decisions, I think that would be cool.


Craig Rupp (29:33):

And yeah, and we've done that a lot with just when we deploy multiple systems in the field, knowing where they're at and what passes to make. And so, there's a lot of innovations that are going to be coming down the pipe related to that.


Morgan Seger (29:52):

Very cool. Well, anything else you would like the listeners to know about Sabanto Ag?


Craig Rupp (29:57):

Really a fun company. It's great working with farmers and I always should do a shout out to the guys on my team. I think I've assembled kind of a unique group of people. They are both ag engineers, software engineers, electrical, mechanical engineers, and they're wearing different hats, believe it or not. Some of them are mechanical engineers. When they're done designing a bar, for example, they're writing software as well. And all of them have an ag background. They've worked more than five years, so they understand all the aspects. A lot of the aspects related to farming that you would typically not see in a software engineer.


Morgan Seger (30:48):

Awesome. Well, thank you so much for joining me today. This was a lot of fun, and I appreciate all the information that you were able to share with us. We'll be sure to link out to your Twitter and connect to the website in case anyone wants to learn more about Sabanto Ag.


Craig Rupp (31:00):

All right. Well, thank you very much Morgan.


Morgan Seger (31:03):

Thanks, Craig.


Morgan Seger (31:05):

I hope you enjoyed that conversation with Craig Rupp. One of my favorite parts about this conversation is just the fact that we are talking about using autonomy on the field.
