Agriculture startups – leading Agri food tech innovation by growing acres
plenty a vertical farming startup that’s leading agri food tech innovation by growing acres worth
of non pesticide produce in small spaces while relying on 100 percent renewable energy. It claims
to rival conventional outdoor farming by producing four hundred times the yield while using less
than one percent of the land and five percent of the water. For example, each vertical farm can grow
fifteen hundred acres worth of produce in a building that is the size of a big-box grocery store.
It’s favorable and nutritious fruits and vegetables are pesticide free and certified non-GMO.
Plenty precisely manages every growth wearable in this indoor vertical farms from the air to humidity,
light water and soil. All of these are monitored around the clock to ensure healthy plant growth.
Plenty further optimizes these growth cycles by utilizing its agri food tech platform,
which leverages data analytics, machine learning and customized lighting.
The use of LED lights is especially pivotal for photosynthesis. Then he points out that the photosynthetic
wavelengths are linked with the crops growth to minimize energy usage and optimize yields.
Currently, plenty is operating the world’s most efficient leafy Greens farms at its south San Francisco
headquarters, with additional R&D facilities in Laramie, Wyoming.
Founded in 2013, the privately held We See Agriculture Technology Company. It’s also slated to
open a new farm in Compton to service the Greater Los Angeles area. It’s raised over two hundred
and twenty six million U.S. dollars from investors, including SoftBank Vision Fund, Bezos Expeditions
and Innovation Endures., etc.. Additionally, plenty has teamed up with retail group Albertsons with
packaged salad Greens stopped at four hundred and thirty Albertsons stores and Driskell’s,
which will involve R&D around strawberry cultivation. Given this tumultuous year with the presence
of raging global pandemic and our reliance on bridges across the world, the need for alternative
farming methods is in high demand, not to mention food waste by the time produce actually gets
to the shelves and may spoil faster. The recent disruptions in the global supply chain caused by the
West Coast wildfires and COVID 19 have highlighted how quickly our access to quality produce
can be thwarted, highlighted Matt Barnard, co-founder and CEO at Plenty.
