Taranis, a leading precision agriculture company, has announced the opening of its corporate headquarters in Sunnyvale, CA. The company’s new offices will be dedicated to its business and operations, while the Tel Aviv office will remain Taranis’ R&D headquarters and the existing Wisconsin office will continue to serve as the U.S regional branch. This move signals Taranis’ rapid maturation and will support the company’s growing business volume and customer base in the U.S. and the Americas.
The new offices will allow Taranis to attract a large pool of talent from both the agricultural and technology sectors in Silicon Valley and will enable Taranis to continue to expand its activities in the U.S. and worldwide. Moreover, the new headquarters are in close proximity to current and future investors and will help strengthen Taranis’ position with key players in the industry.
Taranis uses AI and deep learning technology to identify crop threats on a granular level, including weeds, diseases, insects, uneven emergence and nutrient deficiencies. Taranis’ unprecedented insight accuracy is enabled by their patented aerial imagery technology, delivering sub millimeter imagery at scale derived from planes and drones. The high-resolution imagery is then analyzed by artificial intelligence algorithms utilizing Taranis’ extensive database of crops and insights. Farmers are able to receive cost-effective and timely personalized prescriptions for each crop and each acre of farmland.
“We founded Taranis to help commercial farmers predict and prevent crop threats to millions of acres of farmland worldwide. By relocating Taranis’ center of operations to Silicon Valley, we aim to take our business to the next level,” says Ofir Schlam, CEO and Co-founder of Taranis. “The rapid growth of our business, paired with our mission to offer farmers the most robust precision agriculture platform, calls for a facility that meets our current needs while allowing for considerable growth in the coming years.”
