Four finalists announced for this week’s “Innova $100,000 Row Crop Challenge powered by AgLaunch”

Four companies are finalists for the “Innova $100,000 Row Crop Challenge powered by AgLaunch” that is set this week during the Farm Journal’s “AgTech Expo” in Indianapolis. They are:

  • Kopper Kutter LLC which offers the ARRO® (Alternator Rotary Rowcrop Option) conversion kits for cornheads so that they can reliably harvest sorghum, sunflowers, and many other crops.
  • Rogo, formerly AgNext, which offers The SmartCore that uses a fully-autonomous robot that collects and packages soil samples with complete depth-, pattern- and location-consistency to give farmers more accurate soil data so they can make more profitable fertilizer decisions.
  • SioTeX which is an eco-friendly specialty chemical manufacturer that makes a pure biogenic amorphous silica from rice hulls. Agricultural customers use the silica as a high-quality soil amendment to protect plants from mites, fungus, and stress and to increase crop yields.
  • Smart Farm Systems that provides farmers with a precision irrigation monitoring and control system that allows them to apply just the right amount of water at just the right time on a field-by-field basis, conserving resources, improving crop yields and profitability.
