An Innovative Integrated Field Sensor system providing a precise farming tool to reduce production costs and water wastage.

Objective

Data recording, keeping and analysis are tasks of a relatively high effort when done manually, which is inefficient and results in farmer’s double effort and high production costs. Moreover, Up to 40% of global crop yields are lost to pests and diseases every year, endangering the productivity of crops grown for human consumption and causing serious impact on the economic output of a farm.

To solve this problem, we have developed Stoock, a self-sufficient solar powered multi-sensor device in a stick-like shape that will allow farmers to collect and record several physical parameters such as air temperature, soil moisture, air humidity, wind speed, solar radiation and rainfall. By deploying Stoock in different countries around Europe and the world, a completely innovative system of Edaphoclimatic Business Intelligence based on Big Data will be created. This will provide detailed advice on actions to improve the use of chemicals by predicting pests risk factors related to specific weather conditions.

So far we have raised more than €650K from more than 350 private investors of 25 different nationalities in three Seedrs campaigns and allowed us invested to develop and test the Stoock to ensure its robustness and efficiency and move into the commercialisation stage. To further develop it, overcome market barriers and deploy it at a European and global level we need a further investment of €1.5M that could be partially covered by the Phase 2 grant.

The proposed work in Phase 1 of the SME instrument fits into our overall plan to reach the market by contributing the financial resources needed to plan a fast sound wider deployment of the Stoock and its market uptake by integrating it with our first product already in the market: Agroop Operational.
