Agbotic Establishes Regenerative Agriculture Initiative in Europe

Leading Farm, Food, and Retail Corporations Investing in Carbon Drawdown

Agbotic, the leader in regenerative SmartFarm technology, announced the establishment of Agbotic Limited in Dublin, Ireland, to conduct business across Europe.

Regenerative farming cleans the air, water, and soil and can reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity - resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle. It can also make better food. There are significant advantages to embedding organic, soil-based greenhouses on distributed SmartFarms for regenerative agriculture. Those benefits include food security and diversity; a cleaner environment; and a year-round supply of local, organic, fresh, and nutrient-packed food. The economics are also better than with hydroponic greenhouses.

John Gaus, co-founder and CEO of Agbotic, said, "The regenerative agriculture movement is accelerating with recent announcements from leaders such as Walmart and General Mills. Agbotic has created a winning techno-economic approach and proven its technology at scale. The movement is on the rise in Europe and North America, and we expect it will be around the world. We are very excited to launch this initiative with our highly experienced team in Ireland, especially Richard Kennedy, a proven chief executive and entrepreneur in the agri-tech sector."

Richard Kennedy, who joined the board of Agbotic Limited, said, "The world is clearly moving to carbon neutral and carbon negative farming. Consumers are demanding healthy nutritious food produced in authentic, transparent, sustainable supply chains. I believe Agbotic with their groundbreaking technology and future pipeline of technology will be a key enabler to delivering this and is aligned to my belief of One Health from Soil to Society - I am excited to join their board as part of this timely and really exciting initiative."

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. AI is able to solve these challenges in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications available. It requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming.
