SOSBio – Sustainable Agrochemicals

Agrochemicals like fertilizers and insecticides find intensive application in modern farming. However, agrochemicals made from synthetic chemicals have detrimental effects on the soil and water. This leads to a vicious cycle of lower yields and higher amounts of agrochemical usage. To tackle this, AgriTech startups are working on a range of bio-based, sustainable agrochemicals.

Australian startup SOSBio provides sustainable agrochemicals that are more efficient than traditional chemicals. ecoNPK, the startup’s performance fertilizer, consists of a unique blend of organic matter, essential nutrients, and microelements. The fertilizer also contains high levels of carbon and natural sugars, as well as humates. SOSBio’s fertilizer releases its active components adaptively, leading to sustainable stimulation and high yield.

IRRIOT – Smart Irrigation

Excessive water usage is one of the most unsustainable practices in industrial agriculture. However, smart irrigation solutions address this by delivering precise quantities of water for each unit area in a field. AgriTech startups deploy the Internet of Things (IoT) sensors for smart irrigation. These solutions take into account factors like weather, soil conditions, and plant water use.

Swedish startup IRRIOT develops IoT-based solutions for irrigation. The startup’s wireless irrigation platform connects to 32 remote units and 34 sensors, ensuring 24/7 control over the watering schedule. The remote units are solar-powered and relay sensor data. The startup also provides a web app that lets users configure and monitor remote units and sensors.

Foris.io – Precision Agriculture

Excessive use of agrochemicals and water in agriculture is highly unsustainable. As the name suggests, precision agriculture enables the application of precise amounts of crop production inputs. AgriTech startups are working on precise agriculture solutions that employ a variety of sensors and remotely or autonomously operated devices. By minimizing the use of crop production inputs, these solutions promote sustainable farming.

Foris.io is a US-based startup that offers solutions for precision agriculture. The startup’s platform stores all farming-related information on the crop, soil, weather, and agrochemical usage. By analyzing current and historical data, the startup provides data-driven recommendations for crop treatment and irrigation. This enables improvements in yield and soil health while using lower amounts of resources.

Babilônia – Urban Farming

Urban farming is critical to tackling the challenge of food insecurity in metro cities globally. Cities are also looking for solutions that conserve water and reduce the carbon footprint. Sustainable urban farming solutions help cities meet both of these goals. These include vertical farming, rooftop farming, and the use of unutilized spaces and structures such as shipping containers for hydroponics and aquaponics.

Babilônia is a Brazilian startup that provides sustainable solutions for urban farming. The startup farms vegetables on a commercial scale in unutilized outdoor spaces. Modular urban farming structures, including vertical farming solutions, enable rapid setup and easy management. The startup’s solution helps cities become self-reliant while promoting sustainable technologies.

Dahlia Robotics – Farm Robotics

As weeds compete with crops for resources, there is a continuous need for efforts to eliminate them. Manual weeding is time-consuming and laborious. Whereas, the blanket application of weedicides is unsustainable and, often, polluting. Farm robotics startups provide solutions for fast and efficient robotic weeding.

German startup Dahlia Robotics creates autonomous robots that drive through the field, identifying and mechanically removing weeds. Moreover, the robots use artificial intelligence algorithms to precisely control the end-effector to avoid damage to crops.
