We are a small team that genuinely enjoys working with each other. We all come from very different backgrounds and enjoy collaborating on projects to elevate each others work.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We help farmers (our customers) make informed decisions throughout the growing season by collecting and analyzing huge amount of data from various sources.

By combining data and applying advanced AI algorithms, farmers can make better decisions to increase their yield, reduce their usage in chemicals, and overall lower their costs.

Ron Shilansky

Senior Product Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We developed a methodology of lean alpha programs, where we quickly introduce new product initiatives and test them with customers. Our multi-disciplinary squads (D.Scientists, Engineers, Agronomists & PMs) sit together, scope new ideas and quickly bring them to market in a lean format; to collect feedback & test their viability at an early stage.
