Company Summary

Our Goal: A machine learning system on every farm because every farm is different.
Our machine learning systems know what a plant is doing each day of its life from seed to harvest—based on detailed knowledge of plant physiology, genetics, and precise growing conditions.
By just growing the right seed, farmers can increase yields by up to 10% and net farm income by 27%. Farm level yields are 100% accurate and field level yields within 98%.
