Using satellite imagery for precision agriculture metrics and SMS messaging to deliver them, Agcess provides actionable insights to small farmers in rural communities and emerging markets. Our work is bridging the technology gap between corporate and local farms by equipping smallholder farmers to optimize food production and climate-friendly practices.
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.
Our work for small farmers.
Consumer-Grade Satellite Technology
Rapidly evolving satellite imagery provide affordable access to the precision analytics Agcess provides.
Data Collection, Aggregation, & Retrieval
By easing the data collection for farmers, we save them time on aggregating and processing the data, while focused on addressing their privacy concerns.
Understandable & Accessible Insights
Agcess delivers agricultural insights in an understandable, clear manner to bridge the technology literacy gap in rural communities.
Formed through a Hackathon-winning idea at Cornell University, we are a team of computer scientists, plant pathologists, & remote sensing specialists, well positioned to bridge this technological gap and bring precision agriculture to farmers.
