Australian Federal Government selected FluroSat for Accelerating Commercialisation case study
Accelerating Commercialisation grant customer (FluroSat) story was originally published on the Australian Federal Government website.
FluroSat received a $793,737 Accelerating Commercialisation Grant under the Entrepreneurs’ Programme. Commercialisation Adviser Topaz Conway provided crucial strategic advice and assistance, to tackle both big and everyday business challenges.
Flurosat has developed a platform that analyses images from aerial photography and satellites to determine the stress on plants (particularly crops). This information is then provided to agronomists and farmers to assist them to respond to the needs of crops, improving yields. The Accelerating Commercialisation grant allowed them to fast track their trials and development.
FluroSat Pty Ltd are an agricultural technology start-up, helping crop advisors ‘grow more for less’.
Helping farmers proactively manage their crops, FluroSat’s technology FluroSense combines agricultural modelling, remote sensing imaging (from drone, plane and satellite) and machine learning to detect early signs of plant stress and aid proactive management.
Before they head to the farm, growers know precisely where to look for issues and how to spend their time most effectively.Anastasia Volkova, Founder and CEO, FluroSat
With adaptive, accurate and actionable analytics, crop growers are able to make better-informed decisions to drive business profitability.
Accessible from PCs, smartphones or tablets, FluroSense visually highlights stress areas for growers. Farmers and businesses are able to address water and nutrient stress in real time by reducing fertiliser and water waste, and improving their crop yields. Using FluroSense can help improve agricultural productivity by increasing crop yields by 10-25 per cent and reducing fertiliser use by 30 per cent.
