About Us

We use machine learning to solve the biggest challenges in agriculture

Why is it that neighboring fields, with identical growing conditions, can produce such drastically different yields? This was the question that drove us to establish Prospera, and it’s what still drives us today.

 

Using our background in data science and machine learning, we explored ways to bring more certainty to an unpredictable industry. As the current agricultural revolution unfolds, digitalization will become the engine of crop production — to meet rising population demands and ensure environmental sustainability.

 

Taking a ground-up approach, our technology enables growers to make more informed, efficient, and scientific decisions. We make agriculture not only predictable, but optimizable across the entire growth cycle. Our technology advances agricultural productivity by helping growers do more with fewer resources.

Our data-led approach

Optimizing agriculture with data is extraordinarily complex. There are a large number of parameters to consider – their interactions vary and are hard to predict. To meet these challenges, we’ve developed some of the world’s most advanced, artificial intelligence technologies in-house.

We analyse field images to identify pests and diseases, monitor agro-technical activities and collect yield data. We use Deep Learning techniques to solve multi-dimensional planning and assignment optimization problems across massive data sets. And we extract insights from multiple data sources that are harmonized in an advanced Big Data framework.
