A soil intelligence platform to increase yields, reduce fertilizers, and form the future of food.

PROBLEM

The trillion-dollar agriculture industry is chemically intensive. Around 65% of the excessive Nitrogen and fertilizer we use in our agriculture remains in the environment, and destroys one third of global crop waste. Currently, the only available solution to evaluate soil nutrients is the collecting soil samples, and performing highly complex, expensive, and less accurate soil tests. Lack of real-time soil information leads to poor soil health and crop degradation, culminating in low crop yields, financial losses, and high carbon-nitrogen emissions.

SOLUTION

SenseGrass is a Soil Intelligence Platform that helps companies and farmers reduce excessive nitrogen and fertilizer usage using a patented NPK sensor. SenseGrass optimizes crop data through an AI Agronomist, enabling on average 22% higher yields, 43% in energy savings and a 35% reduction in Nitrogen and fertilizer usage.
