Intelligent Indoor Farming Platform

Agrilyst’s platform tracks and analyzes indoor farm data in one place, enabling farmers to monitor and optimize plant performance and reduce operating expenses.

Agrilyst claims to be the first end-to-end management system specifically designed for indoor farms, making their processes easier, greener, and more productive. The start-up provides real-time analytics and aggregates data from hardware, such as sensors, and static forms, such as lab results and spreadsheets,and digitizes manual recording processes into one simple platform.
Having all farm data in one place helps growers define and maintain optimal performance while using less energy and resources to produce more food. Agrilyst then uses the aggregated data on the platform, coupled with academic research and industry knowledge, to develop new solutions for optimizing performance.

Relevance of solution

Food production must increase by 60% to 70% by 2050 in order to feed the growing global population.1 Indoor farming is more resource efficient than conventional farming methods, with hydroponics using approximately 10 times less land and 20 times less water, according to the company. However indoor farming still uses a lot of energy and resources. By helping farmers optimize performance and use less resources and energy to produce more, Agrilyst helps each farmer become more sustainable and profitable.
