John Deere leads InnerPlant’s $16M Series A as we work together to develop a sense-and-act toolkit for farmers.

InnerPlant was founded on the idea that the future of agriculture is specific and efficient – sense-and-act if you will. Our sensor traits are one piece of the puzzle, detection is the other. We know that by detecting specific pest pressure earlier, farmers can save money on chemistry and mitigate yield loss.

We’re working with Deere to complete the “detection-to-action chain” that links the large-scale detection of stresses via satellite to plant-by-plant mapping and action.
