VESCO is a startup looking to make agro technology more accessible to farmers.
The company is looking to bring to market agro sensors that can read the temperature, moisture, and humidity of plants, and send them to farmers in real-time, enabling them to harvest their crops faster.
The sensor technology would then be used to detect pests, such as disease, to monitor plant growth and improve crop yields.
VESCOS sensors would also be able to record temperature and humidity data, to track water usage, and even identify weeds.
The idea is that the farmer can track his crops and then make adjustments to increase yields, which would then enable him to reap the benefits of climate change and reduce the environmental impact.
The startup is looking at a range of crops, from crops grown on the rooftops of homes, to crops grown in fields, to those grown in urban landscapes.VESCO CEO and co-founder John Vescov said he was looking to create sensors that could be used in the field to record the climate and humidity, and then send the data to a remote area, where farmers could be alerted when conditions are right to harvest.
He said that it was a natural fit, given that he was a farmer myself growing up, and that he and his family were interested in learning more about how climate change could affect agriculture.
Vescov explained that the sensors would be able read the soil moisture and air temperature, and can also read the humidity and temperature of the plants, in real time.
He said that these sensors would not only help farmers, but also the farmers themselves, and help them plan their crops and grow their crops optimally.
Vesco would be using sensors to monitor plants, but it also wants to add a second component, which is to make it possible for farmers to upload their data and upload it to the cloud, to help other farmers.
Vespocos sensors would then collect and store the data on a central server, which could then be uploaded to other farmers for monitoring.
Vespocs sensors would have the ability to read a variety of data types, such to water usage and air quality, and be able upload data on to the web, where it could be easily shared with other farmers, and ultimately other farmers’ farms.
Vesios sensors will be used by farmers to monitor the climate, the soil, and the air quality in a field.
Vesco will use the sensors in the lab and then sell them to other companies.
The product is still in its early stages, but Vespos hopes to have it on the market within a year.
Vesco explained that this is partly because he and the team have already received funding from several venture-backed companies, and partly because the company is very focused on its product.
The VESCA sensor is currently in development, and is expected to be ready to go to farmers within two years.
The concept of using sensors in agriculture has been around for a long time.
For instance, the US Department of Agriculture uses sensors to measure soil moisture levels and air pollution.VESA sensors are also used in research labs around the world, and are now being used by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, among others.
Vecco will not only be using the sensors to track crops, but to help farmers plan their farms.
VESEs sensors will also be used for monitoring irrigation, irrigation water, crop growth, crop pest resistance, soil and water quality, plant development and harvest.VESTA will use sensors to help the industry monitor plant health and to improve irrigation.VESEs will also allow farmers to save time and money by allowing them to store their data on the cloud and then share it with other growers and growers in the same area, VESco CEO and founder John Vespo said.
Vesmov said that he had been looking for an agro sensor to be used as a tool for farmers for years.
Vesmov also noted that he is a farmer himself, and has worked with the VESCE sensors, which are in development.
The solution he and Vespco are looking to build is an agri-sensor that can monitor both plant health, and crop production, and also help farmers in monitoring pests, weed growth, water usage in a farm, and water availability in the fields.
Vesarov said VESCs sensor will be able track plants, the sensors will have the capability to send the information to a third party, and will also have the capacity to upload the data.
Veseo added that they have also developed a software tool that can be used on the web to monitor water usage.
Vela said that the sensor could also be a tool to help growers improve the water use efficiency of a farm.
Vela said the VESA sensor will help farmers with improving their crop yields, as well as improve the environmental footprint of a crop
