InnerPlant grows with new John Deere-backed millions for sustainable farming

Christine Hall writes in TechCrunch about InnerPlant, a farming company backed by John Deere.

The C3 Take
  • InnerPlant is a sustainable farming startup that employs sensing and satellite technologies to make farming more efficient.
  • By relying on technology, InnerPlant’s farmers can plant and harvest crops using fewer chemical pesticides.
  • The company is actively partnering with 75 farmers, comprising 400,000 acres.
  • InnerPlant has recently completed a $5.65 million funding round led by John Deere and will rollout a new soybean product in 2024.

“Shely Aronov and Rod Kumimoto started the Davis, California-based company in 2018 and spent much of the past four years in R&D mode developing genetically engineered crops that give off early ‘signals,’ for example, of when they are thirsty, have a pest attack or need nitrogen so farmers can act quickly.”
