Aker Technologies Secures Funding to Advance Autonomous Crop-Scouting Platform
Aker Technologies has announced it has secured an investment of $2.6 million in new equity financing. The funding will be used to advance its TrueCause technology, an autonomous crop-scouting platform. TrueCause and the Aker Pest Network provide growers, suppliers, and ag retailers with under-the-canopy disease and pest crop diagnostics to measure the effectiveness of inputs and drive efficient in-season crop management practices.
“We are delighted to welcome investors who recognize the innovation gap in an increasingly variable climate environment and the potential of our technology across the industry,” said Orlando Saez, Co-Founder & CEO of Aker Technologies. “Our team is excited to have a close relationship with the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center to accelerate evidence-based field monitoring practices, along with new input and trait development.”
