Nematode Detection

Farmers face a critical challenge in crop production, where nematodes threaten their harvests and yield, season after season. AgroStart is currently seeking startups and/or digital solutions that are concentrating efforts to tackle this challenge head on, specifically in the areas of  precise identification, standardization, accelerated sample processing, and the use of satellite imagery for diagnosis.  Are you a startup who can help enable the early, accurate and, ideally, predictive detection of crop stressors, with special attention to nematodes?
