Who are we


Tomato farmers need innovation to grow enough and grow better for our planet and its people. We have leading research capabilities in technology and data science to detect pests and diseases at an early stage.

Steve Verhoest

Co-Founder and CTO


The spread of transboundary pests and diseases on food crops where food insecurity is a direct consequence is facilitated by the lack of knowledge and access to technology services to detect pests and diseases. Together with our partners, we are setting up sustainable projects in order to provide our technology to local small food crop farmers globally.
