Israel21c reports on an Israeli tech company that’s helping farmers around the world prevent disease and pest infestation in their crops:

About 19,000 farmers use the agriculture platform to make decisions about preventing disease and pest infestation in crops such as wheat, corn, soybeans, cotton and potatoes on a cumulative 20 million acres of fields in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Israel, Russia, United States and Ukraine.

“The last three years have been pretty amazing,” acknowledges Taranis CEO Ofir Schlam from the company’s Tel Aviv headquarters. “There are a lot more needs in the field, a lot of demand for our product and more ways to use our basic technology better.”

Raised in a farming family, Schlam believed more accurate predictive models could prevent many of the world’s multibillion-dollar crop losses caused by weather, fertilizer deficiencies, diseases, and insect and weed infestations.
