Knowledge for Free – Decisions for a Fee
Global agriculture faces massive challenges as a consequence of a growing conflict between economic and technical interests on the one hand and environmental and social on the other. Currently there exists no system approach that allows to combine competing interests; making sustainable food production nearly impossible.
Agricompas digitises entire crop value chains to create and provide valuable information as never done before so that all involved stakeholders can improve the efficiency of their processes. In this holistic approach we execute three major steps:
- Collect with partners detailed data per crop, per grower, per field in near real-time. We use weather stations, greenhouse gas sensors, satellite and drone Earth Observation, biodiversity camera straps, third party and grower records
- Apply crop modelling, machine learning and A.I. to process comprehensive data sets in economic, social, technical and environmental process knowledge (to analyse and understand the gap between actual and potential performance)
- Create commercially viable business models per crop and per country, based on a digital platform called EcoProMIS that provides “Knowledge for Free” to our partners and “Decisions for a Fee” to a wide range of customers
From 2018 till 2021 Agricompas is executing two Proof of Concept projects in Colombia to digitise rice, cacao and oil palm with strategic partners in Colombia (Solidaridad, IWCO, CIAT, Fedecacao, Fedearroz and Cenipalma) and the UK (Pixalytics and the Universities of Lincoln and Reading). The projects have a budget of £5m and are grant funded by Innovate UK, the Prosperity Fund and the UK Space Agency (dept. BEIS).
We are interested to meet new partners and customers to develop knowledge services and decision support in new crops and geographies. Investors please request a pitch deck from Roelof Kramer the CEO and founder; firstname.lastname@example.org
