FibriTech (POL) turns plant fibers into new types of fully biodegradable eco friendly products without deep chemistry processing. As a result, growing media are bio-degradable, compostable, environmentally friendly and have adequate water retention properties which reduce the amount of water used in the agricultural sector.
GeoPard Agriculture (GER) is a cloud based powerhouse for precision Ag data with business intelligence capabilities. GeoPard Variable Rate (VR) prescription maps are used for fertilizing, crop protection, seeding, irrigation, desiccation, optimization of crop inputs and yield while preserving resources.
E-TERRY (GER) developed a highly flexible and universally usable robot combining robust hardware and smart software.The system is specifically designed to be highly agile to suit ecological agriculture and alternative farming concepts (e.g. agro-forestry, polycultures) instead of only focusing on conventional farming.
DigiFarm (NOR) have developed a state-of-the-art deep neural network model for Field Delineation (automatic detection of field boundaries and seeded acres).They managed to reach 10x higher resolution boundaries at 1 m resolution compared to existing AI-solutions – while keeping the pricing 25% lower than competition.
BIOWEG (GER) combines cutting edge science from Biotechnology, Molecular Simulations and Material Science to create highly functional biodegradable biomaterials. They have dedicated resources with deep expertise in polymer chemistry and seed enhancement formulations.

Be-Grow solves a problem almost every farmer has. When using mineral fertilizer, sufficient and steady water in soil is needed to transport the nutrients into the plants to generate more yield. But due to climate change there are increasing periods of drought so the fertilizer doesn’t work properly and farmers waste money. Be-Grow invented a new hydrogel that increases the effectiveness of nutrients present in fertilizers as well as stores water and makes it available to plants during dry summer time.
