PhyFarm develops a Virtual Farm Manager

Due to labor shortages and ecological issues connected with the agriculture sector, food producers are unable to meet the growing food demand. Developments in agriculture 4.0 enable farmers to integrate robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve production. This is why food growers utilize farm automation or smart farming solutions to meet the market requirements and boost their profits.

PhyFarm is an Indian startup that develops a virtual farm manager for farm automation and management. It organizes farms and creates workflows for better management. Also, the virtual farm manager tracks farm activities by keeping digital records and reports. This allows farmers to efficiently plan crops, manage farm operations, and automate farm equipment. At present, the startup’s solution is specialized for tomatoes, cucumber, berries, and capsicum, among others.

Tarvos automates Pest Management

Conventional agricultural pest control methods rely on unchecked pesticide use and, consequently, affect the ecosystem and consumer health. Integrated pest management (IPM), on the other hand, optimizes pest control methods. Moreover, with farm automation solutions, IPM further improves the timely detection and elimination of pest infestations. This way, farmers reduce their ecological footprint and automate crop health monitoring.

Brazilian startup Tarvos automates agricultural pest management. The startup utilizes pheromone-based pest control with predictive modeling to improve the sustainability and effectiveness of pest control. TARVOS VIEW, the startup’s software solution, provides real-time information based on pest pressure collected via TARVOS LD, an automatic field monitoring station. TARVOS VIEW further allows users to identify areas with higher pest pressure as well as filter data by crop, management, and pests.

Reest develops Harvesting Robots

Agricultural tasks are slow, dull, and repetitive for human labor. Agricultural robots automate and speed up these tasks without affecting the output quality. Therefore, startups now develop robots for farm activities such as harvesting, picking, weed control, and seeding, among others. Moreover, these robots efficiently replace human labor while improving operational efficiency. For instance, autonomous tractors enable longer working hours and effective land management as well as avail agricultural data for the farmers.

Based in the US, Reest is a startup that builds mushroom harvesting robots. The startup’s robot uses an optimal harvesting strategy and continuous mushroom bed monitoring to predict picking time and localize diseases. The robot also features a shape recognition algorithm to facilitate mushroom picking. Furthermore, it runs 24/7 with short maintenance periods, increasing the yield for big farms, reducing the need for labor.

FarmVent automates In-Store Vertical Farming

Apart from improving the operational efficiency of conventional farming methods, farm automation enables sustainable agriculture. Precision farming, urban agriculture, agroforestry, and permaculture are use cases where automation significantly reduces environmental impacts. Therefore, startups create automation solutions that are readily integrable with existing agricultural processes while minimizing human mediation and ecological effects.

FarmVent is a Dutch startup that provides fully automated in-store vertical farming units. The startup combines IoT, data science, machine learning, and robotics to provide fresh produce at stores. This also enables hyper-local indoor agriculture and on-demand autonomous harvesting, thereby bringing food production closer to customers. Additionally, it offers farming-as-as-service for restaurants. The startup’s solutions shorten the supply chain of fresh produce and reduce the overall carbon footprint.

EcosiAg offers Containerized Aquaponics

Aquaponics combines aquaculture and hydroponics for sustainable and high-yield farming. However, it is sensitive to ecosystem conditions and management mistakes. In contrast, integrating automation solutions in aquaponics improves its productivity and resilience. That is why startups develop automated aquaponics solutions. This way, farmers track and monitor aquaponics ecosystems in real-time as well as the automatic system responds to changes quickly.

EcosiAg is a French startup that offers containerized aquaponics solutions. The startup creates an aquaponics module with a combination of two compartments for fish and vegetables. Moreover, the module is autonomously operable with minimal operator intervention and provides continuous production throughout the year. In addition, EcosiAg develops a dashboard for remote management that also predicts failure in the aquaponics system.
