Orbitcrops provides farmers with a new way to monitor their fields. Through high-definition images combined with filters we are able to analyze crop healths, condition and water usage of their agricultural systems.
We provide real-time and future information on weather conditions. Through innovative algorithms developed in the last 5 years of research we are able to predict the growth and development of the crop allowing the farmer to maximize the efficiency of their field while decreasing the use of resources.
Producing food to feed the world's growing population is becoming an increasingly topical problem. By 2050 we will need to feed 10 billion people and it will be impossible to do so if we do not optimize the use of our resources. This has led us to conceive a new way to increase the efficiency and productivity agricultural systems.
We strive to enhance the productivity of farmers worldwide with a special focus on inputs optimization, such as water and fertilizer application.
We aim to become one of the leading companies in the agriculture sector.
