InnerPlant Living Sensors

Plants Communicate, We Listen.

View Demo

InnerPlant is developing a variety of genetically-engineered living sensor plants that signal when they’re stressed




When crops experience fungal pressure, are attacked by pests, lack nutrients, or are thirsty, the leaves fluoresce in different colors, serving as an early warning system for growers.

Early and Specific Signals

We can detect stress within hours of emergence, instead of days or weeks when it is too late.






InnerPlant Data Platform

InnerPlant uses machine learning and proprietary software to integrate plant signals with other data sources to provide farmers with prescriptive and targeted recommendations for crop optimization.

InnerPlant Data Platform

We capture the plant signals in our platform, enrich them with additional data, and provide recommendations.

We code signaling capabilities into plants’ DNA to create fluorescent proteins in leaves when stressed

Different fluorescent colors indicate different problems – drought, pathogens, nutrient deficiency
