SmartCloudFarming develops a Remote Sensing and Monitoring Solution
Soil management and monitoring are becoming increasingly important. Climate change is driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better practices to protect the soil. Farmers use soil monitoring to identify the nutrients in the soil, collect data about rainfall, temperature, moisture concentration, and carbon content to optimize irrigation cycles, soil fertilizing, and carbon storage.
German startup SmartCloudFarming offers advanced soil analytics solutions based on remote sensing, ground data, and deep learning. To simplify soil management the startup develops a remote soil management dashboard powered by its proprietary 3D digital soil moisture and nutrient maps. The startup’s soil organic carbon monitoring algorithm uses remote sensing data and advanced climate science research to help make informed decisions regarding soil management and carbon storage.
Dagan provides Satellite-based Agricultural Data Services
Climate change and a concern for the planet’s ability to grow food in the future drive a need for resilient agricultural practices that positively impact environmental outcomes. Startups develop satellite-based solutions to support farmers in identifying adjustments that can be made to sustain long-term crop and soil health.
The US-based startup Dagan provides satellite-based agricultural and environmental data services to support the expansion of regenerative agriculture. Through satellite data and soil process models, the startup provides details on agricultural activities, including crop residue, cover crops, and crop rotations, and delivers soil health insights to agricultural stakeholders to support sustainable farming practices worldwide.
Nori offers a Carbon Removal Marketplace
After decades of industrial agriculture, the soil lacks essential nutrients and carbon which is the main component of soil organic matter and gives soil its water-retention capacity, structure, and fertility. To improve soil health, farmers adopt regenerative practices and return carbon to their soils and keep it there and startups develop solutions to support farmers in carbon removal processes.
The US-based startup Nori offers a carbon removal marketplace where companies and individuals can buy carbon removals directly from farmers. By using sustainable farming practices, farmers remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their soil. The platform enables farmers to quantify and verify new carbon getting added into their soils.
HYMAG’IN develops a Soil Remediation Technology
Climate change with extreme weather conditions and increasing floods have a damaging influence on soil health and lead to soil contamination. Increasing soil temperatures have also led to increased soil toxicity. Moreover, many soil contaminants can enter the food chain and be ingested by humans. To remove toxins from the soil and improve soil health startups develop soil remediation solutions.
French startup HYMAG’IN develops an industrial process for converting ferrous waste and by-products into a functional material, magnetite. Magnetite is iron oxide produced in sizes smaller than a micrometer with physicochemical properties that make it a valuable material for soil remediation. Magnetite offers efficient decontamination of heavy metals (Cr, As, Se, Pb, etc.) and organic micro-pollutants (pesticides, dyes, chlorinated compounds), by combining filtration and redox degradation.
Croptimal develops a Mobile Soil Analysis Laboratory
Climate change has a direct and considerable influence on the fertility of the soil. Heavy rainfalls cause erosion which leads to the loss of nutrients and decreased quality of soils. To create mitigation and adaptive strategies and enable optimum plant growth farmers and companies need to know what soil nutrients are present and what is needed to maximize yield potential. To collect required data they leverage soil analysis solutions.
Israel-based startup Croptimal offers a mobile laboratory equipped with integrated multi-spectral spectroscopy and solution electric measurement units for material analysis of nutrients in the soil. The startup’s technology addresses the need for highly accurate and fast measurement of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, and microelements Fe, Mg, Mn, Zn in all their forms, at set intervals and provides a GIS-based data set in a cloud repository.
