With food production and agricultural facing a host of climate-based challenges, farmers need all the help they can get to make sure their operations are as efficient and productive as possible. Enter CropSafe, the latest arrival to the burgeoning agtech landscape which promises to deliver useful insights and financing to farmers in just 10 seconds.
The app provides key information on everything from blight risk and wildfire warnings, to AI-powered scaling suggestions and financing options, giving simple, straightforward guidance such as ‘There’s blight in field 14, here’s what you need to do’, and ‘Here’s how doing X will increase your yield by X’.
Already popular with users around the world, CropSafe has quickly exploded out of its humble Northern Ireland beginnings into California’s Santa Monica with a $3 million seed funding round, and the promise of a series of exciting announcements to come this summer.
The agtech sector certainly isn’t short of farming insight platforms, but as founder John McElhone notes, farmers don’t have the time or skill set needed to figure out complicated systems or satellite imagery – their job, after all, is to farm. CropSafe addresses these barriers with a clean interface, simplified insights and clear suggestions that enable farmers to do their jobs more efficiently while mitigating the myriad of challenges heading their way – good news for everyone that depends on farmed products, which is quite literally all of us.
