Agrellus, a dynamic marketplace where Retailers and growers control the best value in agricultural inputs, is pleased to be working closely with Plug and Play to accelerate technology investment across the agricultural inputs sector. It's the perfect time. Agtech is a global dynamic with a local flare, and Agrellus has designed its offering to complement the local B2B marketplace, focused on practical data, finance, and sustainability. "The time for agtech has finally arrived," remarks Chris Johnson, CEO at Agrellus "digital transformation is really just now delivering needed value to growers, and Agrellus has positioned its products and services to assist the farming operation and Retailer to succeed by making the very best decisions every hour of every day. We are excited to have Plug and Play recognize the timing of the market and the need for corporate involvement with solutions that sustain the future of agricultural input value and local distribution".

The agricultural inputs marketplace, alone, is well above $110B in annual recurring revenue and the time for high-value investments has arrived. "Digitalization of agtech is happening quickly. We at Plug and Play are excited to be part of Agrellus' journey to move this industry forward. Through Agrellus' platform, they have been able to help industry stakeholders connect the dots and we hope with our agtech network and connections we have can move the needle forward a little bit faster," said Alireza Masrour, General Partner at Plug and Play.

Particularly small and cost-effective: Market launch of the uEye XLS cameras

Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
