InnerPlant Awarded Best Product for Product Managers in Sustainability

InnerPlant Awarded Best Product for Product Managers in Sustainability

March 09, 2023

InnerPlant, the company creating a new category of seed technology that unlocks data and makes global farming more efficient and sustainable, announced today that it was named a Top Sustainability product in the 2023 Product Awards. The Product Awards, presented by Products That Count in partnership with Mighty Capital and Capgemini, is the only awards show designed to celebrate the tools that help Product Managers build great products.

Nominees are chosen by Products That Count’s product manager network, and winners are chosen by an independent Awards Advisory Board composed of top product leaders. This year’s Board included product leaders from companies like Intuit, Oscar Health, and Macy’s.

“Our team works hard to help farmers reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides while boosting yields and sustainability,” points out Randy Shultz, InnerPlant’s Vice President of Research. “And this award is a clear validation of InnerPlant’s product management approach that’s resulted in a product development pipeline that is 3X more efficient than industry standards and kept us on pace for the commercial launch of our first product, InnerSoy.”

InnerPlant’s biosensor crops give off optical signals that are specific to stresses like fungal attacks, lack of water, or nitrogen deficiency. The signals are early enough so farmers can act before stresses spread and they’re easily detectable from as far away as space.

“The bar for what makes a great product gets higher every year,” said SC Moatti, founding CEO of Products That Count. “InnerPlant is a testament to that. We expect them to keep defining what it means to be at the cutting edge of product, not only in 2023 but also in the years to come.”
