Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Is farmland details (such as the company owner and field id etc.) relevant to OSM.

I mean, I want to develop an app which will use this data. I thought that instead of store this data only for me, it will shared to the community. If it makes sense, which field I can use to store this data.

The data will inserted by the owner itself, of course.

I'm sure there is a place for this if you add the data in a "good" way. You should try to create a conversion table for the data you have into OSM-tags.

I.e. if you look at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse=farmland there are some suggested tags that can be used

  • name=* (if the field has a NAME, not the operator, or the produce or the id, only if the field has a real name)
  • crop=*
  • produce=*

The "company owner" can be inputted as operator=, the field id can be some form of ref= (see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:ref or possibly create a unique ref for this data)

You could always ask on the email lists talk or tagging to see if your final tagging plan makes sense to the community.
