This agriculture analytics company is using soil sensors in an attempt to bring the industry online. Based in Kfar Rut, Israel, startup Viridix takes a data-driven approach to agriculture and provides automated tools to help crop growers explore their craft and be more efficient.
The soil sensors measure ground moisture and other vital information to help farmers make more informed decisions. Using RootTens technology, the sensor network sends data to the cloud, where it can be accessed by app developers to build tools. Viridex also partnered with smart irrigation system I-Dripper to feed and water each plant according to its individual needs.
This new agricultural venture indicates how technology can improve the growth of crops, even in harsh regions.
