What drives us
We believe that we can contribute to solving the world food gap by providing farmers with the means to a sustainable yield.
Global agriculture is facing a major problem. Worldwide, the population is increasing, and farmers are struggling to cater for the resulting growth in food demand. In 2050, 9 billion stomachs will require filling each day. To make this possible, food production must increase by 70%. We believe that if farmers are better informed about factors that influence their production, and how to manage them, they will quickly optimise their yields, enhance their revenue and ultimately take part in bridging the world food gap.
“I want to help farmers increase their yield by better use of soil, water and other natural elements. More output with less input”Henri Hekman / CEO and Founder
