AgroScout is an Israeli tech startup developing AI-driven cloud-based farming management platform. The company has announced securing $7.5 million in Series A funding; investments were led by none other than Kibbutz Yotvata, with additional investors.
The AgroScout platform collects data to create powerful analytics for actionable insights in crop management. AgroScout monitors the crop from emergence stand count, through canopy coverage estimates and plant biomass, throughout the season. The platform also monitors for pests and disease, decreasing pesticide use by early detection when infestation levels are low and curative treatments are highly effective, predicting regional outbreak tendencies.
AgroScout states that the platform enables improved yield predictions prior to harvest, and delivers farmers, agribusinesses, and food manufacturers an affordable way to build more competitive, sustainable, and environment-friendly food and agriculture supply chains.
