100M small farmers in India LOSE money on average from agriculture, largely due to climate risk. Kheyti changes that through its "Greenhouse-in-a-Box", a low-cost greenhouse kit bundled with services. Our greenhouse fits in 2% of a small farmer’s land, protects crops from external risks and grows 7x food using 90% less water. In addition, we work with partners to offer financing, inputs, training and market linkages, creating a seamless path towards steady incomes >$100/month and out of poverty.

2017 Boston Diamond Winner

We are transforming the livestock management industry by using technology to remove fencing and labor from farms. Our proprietary hardware and software solution significantly increase the efficiency and productivity of livestock farms. To maximize the value of a livestock farm, farmers need to optimize grass growth as well as animal headcount per acre. For millennia farmers have done this using a combination of fencing and manual labor. We enhance our customers profits and quality of life.

World egg production industries rely on a single sex only (female for layers and male for poultry), while the other sex is usually disposed shortly after hatching.
This causes substantial ethical, environmental and economic problems.
Over 3 billion male chicks are killed annually.
We are developing a technology which identifies the sex at early stage of incubation, saves these chicks from being hatched, avoids their incubation and keeps the eggs within the food industry.

Our team is committed to creating actionable intelligence from satellite imagery and other data about the planet. Our technology allows us to quickly go from hypothesis testing to meaningful, global-scale measurements and forecasts aimed at decision makers in finance, insurance, government and agribusiness. Our first product is called Kernel: an in-season yield forecast for US corn that is now in testing with a select group of pilot customers this growing season.

We produce animal feed the way nature intended.

Entocycle, is an innovative feed company that is developing one the most advanced, efficient and sustainable systems to feed the world.

We are utilising the power of Hermetia illucens (Black Soldier Fly) to 'up-cycle' organic food waste into a sustainable protein feed alternative for aquaculture and livestock.

"Nature does not believe in waste, and neither do we"

Gold Winners
2016 Switzerland Gold Winner

TwentyGreen addresses the huge societal challenge of meeting growing world demand for protein by offering a solution to animal feeding that is at the same time more beneficial for the farmed animals, more profitable for the farmer, and more sustainable for our environment.

TwentyGreen produces a natural animal feed probiotic that provides a combined solution for today’s three major animal farming problems:
1. Feed cost
2. Disease burden
3. Ecological impact

As the world population rises and our natural resources become ever more depleted, the pressures on world agriculture have never been greater. Precision agricultural technologies are key to achieving maximum efficiency from our land, natural and manufactured resources. The onTrak precision guidance system developed by Agricision aims to provide access to some high impact technologies for the many producers for whom the large investment currently required is a major barrier to adoption.

Silver Winners
2017 Switzerland Silver Winner

Precision vine works with wine producers to provide and integrate remote sensing data into both winemaking and vineyard management. Using drone based platforms and an international network of operators for multi and hyperspectral imaging we offer a vineyard specific data processing service.

Actionable and valuable information is used by both vineyard managers and winemakers alike, solving problems in two distinctive parts of the value added chain.

DryGro is an Oxford-based AgTech venture that grows food in the desert. Using proprietary technology, DryGro can grow food in high-temperature environments using 99% less water than conventional agriculture. DryGro has the potential to significantly disrupt food markets globally. At scale, this technology could open up unproductive desert land to economic food production, making a significant impact on global food security and water conservation. Lets make the deserts bloom.
