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.
