London, May 25th 2018Challenge Advisory have announced today that FluroSat will be partnering with Agriculture 4.0 to help embed unprecedented levels of efficiency within US agriculture. FluroSat will be participating in Agriculture 4.0, an interoperability workshop to be hosted by Challenge Advisory in October 2018. The showcase will bring together key leaders from throughout global agriculture and the US supply chain to address the most pressing challenges to the sector’s sustainability and performance.

Founder and CEO of FluroSat, Anastasia Volkova, stated on their involvement, “As the success of Digital Ag is dependent on integrating data as well as sharing ideas, we welcome the opportunity provided by Ag 4.0 to network with our peers in the industry. ” Flurosat is a crop health monitoring start-up that allows agronomists and growers to proactively improve yield performance and efficiency. Agronomists use FluroSat’s remote sensing data in maps and graphs of their paddocks to target and optimise nutrition, irrigation, disease and pest strategies. With a unique multi-layered data approach that combines multi and hyperspectral imagery acquired by satellite, aircraft and UAVs calibrated with in-crop ground-truthing, FluroSat is a comprehensive yet detailed analysis and decision support tool for precision agriculture.

Karveh Cavalieri, Managing Partner at Challenge Advisory, “FluroSat’s solution addresses real world problems for agronomists. Their ability to combine high-detail data with a simple management platform has created a powerful tool for growers. It will be interesting to see how their solution fits in with other providers and actors within the US supply-chain.”

Challenge Advisory are pleased to be able to announce this partnership and the inclusion of FluroSat in an ever-growing list of global disruptors and innovators who will be adding their voices to Agriculture 4.0.
