Tel Aviv-based AI data analytics company Prospera Technologies has entered a strategic partnership with Bayer to help farmers sustainably meet increasing global needs through digital solutions.
Prospera provides a transformative, digital farming system to vegetable greenhouse growers worldwide that generates insights and optimizes the growing process.
The collaboration brings together the strengths of Prospera’s data and AI capabilities with Bayer’s expertise in vegetable production, crop protection, and digital transformation.
The cloud-based service is being introduced first in Mexico, which Prospera describes as “an important market for disruptive innovation and global vegetable production.”
The joint solution will enable vegetable greenhouse growers to make more timely and insightful decisions to maximize profitability and sustainability.
For example, pepper growers will use Prospera’s data visualization and analysis platform to apply precise quantities of water to specific locations in the greenhouse.
Bayer and Prospera will collaborate with several key customers in the region to adjust and enhance digitized farming with the intent to expand globally in coming years based on growers’ needs and changing consumer demand.
“We are very excited to partner with Bayer, the world leading provider of vegetable seeds and crop protection solutions. We believe this collaboration can unleash tremendous value for vegetable greenhouse growers,” said Daniel Koppel, CEO and cofounder of Prospera Technologies.
The company develops machine-learning and computer-vision technologies that continuously monitor and analyze plant development, health and stress. Prospera recently was named one of the World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers.
