The five startups featured include:
Global Neighbor: Uses directed energy (light) to make weed seeds non-viable at harvest, providing a cost saving weed control alternative to expensive herbicides. Global Neighbor stops the weeds when they're seeds!
Sporometrics: An early alert system for fungal crop disease. Our easy to
use wind powered air sampler and highly sensitive DNA analysis allows
farmers to know when crop disease is in the air long before its seen in
the field, enabling them to spray precisely.
The Grain Weevil: A grain bin safety and management robot that engages the
surface of the grain. We replace a farmer with a shovel by leveling bins, breaking crusts, doing inspections and feeding grain into the extraction augers. The Grain Weevil is an ag robot doing the work that no farmer should.
Leaftech Ag: Offers a handheld "Digital Lab" that analyzes a plant's leaf for
nutrient and chemical composition; delivering results that are 98% faster and
90% less cost compared to current practices. With faster analytic results
the producer can apply the correct inputs, in the right amounts, at the optimal
time and location, resulting in improved crop performance and reduced cost.
ReEnvision Ag: Has a row planter minimizing soil compaction/contact: The ultimate for precision planting and environmental sustainability.
