Exclusive: Agtech startup FarmWise raises $45 million Series B

Jordan McDonald reports in Emerging Tech Brew that FarmWise has raised $45 million in Series B funding.

The C3 Take
  • FarmWise is a precision agriculture startup that is aiming to make farming more efficient and eco-friendly.
  • The company’s main product, called the Titan, is a machine that uses AI to identify and cut down weeds without harming crops.
  • Titan typically leaves less than 10% of weeds behind, while leaving plants more than 99% in tact.
  • FarmWise’s Titan reduces the need for fertilizer and herbicides, both of which are carbon-intensive to create.

“In practice, Titan roams a farmer’s field, taking pictures of the ground and using machine vision and AI to separate the weeds from the crops, creating a 3D model of the field in real-time, according to Boyer. Titan’s AI system is trained on a database of over 500 million images of plants, Boyer said.”
