Farmers and growers are under immense pressure to increase production outputs and, at the same time, be sustainable and make better use of the limited resources available.
Existing processes and technologies are proven to be insufficient and as such innovative solutions are required to cope with overall demand, while a new paradigm of food production needs to emerge.
In situ data acquisition as a tool to create more accurate predictive models is the key and the next breakthrough when it comes to supporting better decisions and increasing production yields.
Mothive is a precision agriculture company founded in March 2015 that develops autonomous Internet of Things (IoT) devices and machine learning algorithms to support decision-making and reduce agricultural risk.
With headquarters in London, UK, we specialise in berries and grapes and we are currently selling our platform in the UK and Portugal.
Our field devices are installed next to the plants and monitor many important parameters of crops, soil, and weather. After this data is processed and correlated with weather and satellite data, it enables the prediction of crop yields and diseases and improves resource usage and site management through a live alert system.
