The World Agri-Tech Investment Summit was held in London earlier this month; one of the featured agronomic management systems at the event was Israeli startup ScanTask. This cloud-based platform is providing worldwide business intelligence and decision support for agriculture buyers, food conglomerates, agriculture financing and insurance companies.
“With annual losses of hundreds of billions of dollars, agriculture can easily earn the title ‘The Largest Unsupervised Production Factory,'” says ScanTask’s co-founder and CEO Israel Fraier. “The reason is not the lack of data or smart technologies, but the fact that agriculture managers will hardly use existing technologies, unless they become easily accessible, and save the need to deal with multiple technical systems.” Fraier added: “ScanTask’s participation at the London summit is a part of our mission to prove that using AgriTask world farmers can benefit right now from Precision Agronomy and advanced agriculture technologies, without the anxiety and high cost of managing multiple technological systems.”
The turn-key system answers the needs of diverse management and agronomic systems. Growers can use it without changing their work habits, while still addressing crop risks preemptively, increasing yield, and improving work efficiency.
