Democratizing Precision Agriculture

Digital innovation has the potential to change the landscape of sustainability in agriculture in the next few decades. Most new precision agriculture startups curtail their business model around "Big Ag." This widens the technology gap between large corporations and your local farms. We aim to bridge this divide by providing affordable access to precision agriculture. Our product will first demo in the New York region, with hopes of expanding elsewhere.
