Agrosight detects plant diseases early using hyper-spectral signals, dramatically reducing the cost of food production. Our technology detects diseases before they cause serious damage to crops. We do this by detecting minute changes in the light spectrum profile of a plant, signalling that a plant is affected days before any physical manifestation of damage is shown. This significantly reduces crop loss for farmers.
