Agrilytix Ltd is developing an agricultural monitoring system that uses satellite imagery and machine learning to provide enhanced decision support for smaller farmers in challenging environments.
Co-Founder Nilesh Mistry developed the idea for the service when he was working as a development consultant on agricultural development projects with smallholder farmers in Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa.
He says: “The cost of satellite imagery is expensive as only commercial sources can provide high resolution and hyperspectral data, with data analysis adding another layer of cost. Agrilytix will provide a service that makes information about weather and climate more accessible and affordable to smaller farmers and the wider supply chain.”
The company is based at Rothamsted Research and is looking for industry partners and seed funding to develop the service further.
