Athens, Greece – Augmenta was distinguished as a grand winner at Bayer Crop Science’s Innovation Call “Leveraging the power of Digital Farming”.
During the final event, organized by Bayer Crop Science and Hello Tomorrow and held on Monday, December 12th 2022, Guillermo Hermida, the Head of Marketing at Augmenta, shared Augmenta’s unique all-in-one solution. A solution that enables farmers to farm in real-time and with true precision, across multiple operations and crops and based on multiple types of equipment. Augmenta was awarded as a grand winner of the respective event, along with its co-winner, Precision AI.
The next step of this distinction for Augmenta will be to work closely with Bayer Crop Science to integrate their Innovation Ecosystem and co-develop solutions that offer sustainable and rewarding digital farming.
“This event was a great opportunity to share how Augmenta offers immediate value for the farmer, by providing state-of-the-art perception and also not disrupting our customers’ farming practices or budgets”, said Guillermo Hermida, Head of Marketing at Augmenta.
“Our mission is to promote augmented agriculture and sustainable farming, in a way that is beneficial both for the farmers and the environment. We are thrilled with this distinction and look forward to working together with Bayer Crop Science”, said George Varvarelis, CEO and co-founder of Augmenta.
Frustrated by the inefficiencies of traditional farming methods and the impracticalities of precision tools, Co-founders Dimitris Evangelopoulos and George Varvarelis combined their academic training in electronics with farming backgrounds, came up with a solution and set up Augmenta in 2016.
Augmenta’s System is the world’s first real-time, camera, and AI-based VRA hardware platform which supports a full range of operational analytics, reports, and fleet management tools through the Augmenta Web Portal. Augmenta’s system has been awarded EIMA’s First Prize for ‘Technological Innovation’ and the ‘Outstanding Agricultural Aspects Blue Award’ for 2020/21.
So far, Augmenta has raised more than $11m in venture capital funding to bring sustainable precision automation to farmers (including from big players like CNHi). Commercially available in Europe, CIS, North and South America, and Australia.
