Now up to 22 resident startups in the Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology, two new companies joined us in August: BioLumic Ltd. and Agralogics.
BioLumic develops ultraviolet light systems which increase crop yield and quality for large-scale agricultural companies. BioLumic’s novel proprietary technology enables precise control of UV light, a key component in plant growth. The company’s UV light technology applies short-term treatments that have long-term benefits to increase yields and quality of transplanted crops (nursery to field). Learn More
Agralogics is the industry leading platform for Data Collaboration and Geo-Analytics for Food and Water Enterprises.
