According to The Australian Financial Review, farming insights business FluroSat graduated from Cicada Innovations' GrowLab in 2017 and is now scaling into the US.
Its product FluroSense uses the power of deep spectral insight to deliver early, accurate and actionable information on crop health and nutrition, drawing on the data it collects via hand-held devices, drones or earth observation satellites. The technology enables farmers to make better decisions about the management of their crops and to cut their water usage by up to 25 per cent while boosting yields by a quarter and using two-thirds of the usual amount of fertiliser.
FluroSat has its roots in the University of Sydney's "Inventing the Future" course. The project was born out of the founders' desire to find innovative solutions to complex problems of global scale and fascination with earth observation, the company says.
