Startup, ClimateAi, is using artificial intelligence to bring precision weather and long-term forecasts to farmers. The company is set on using AI to maximize weather information in new ways.
Himanshu Gupta, founder and CEO at ClimateAi: “We are on a mission to climate-proof half a billion acres around the world. What we do is forecast the risk of extreme weather going beyond two weeks.”
Gupta explains that the severe weather could be a flood, heat wave or wildfire, and the platform shows how that might impact a particular farm or area. “When we do that, we can generate agronomic analysis and actionable insights that farmers or the community in that food and agriculture value chain can take.”
The ClimateAi tech is not available directly to farmers. Gupta explains that the firm markets services to food companies and input suppliers to agriculture, which means farmers might have access but not directly from ClimateAi.
