Strider, a well-respected, agriculture-focused tech start-up in Brazil, has recently expanded in the U.S. market. Mainly in Texas as of now, Strider is bringing it’s mission of cutting input costs to the American farmer by helping farmers monitor pests, diseases, and weeds. This platform creates value by taking the information collected by scouts on the field to be evaluated by crop consultants and acted upon by growers.
The company’s mobile application allows growers to track information related to crop conditions such as pests, diseases, and weeds, as well as tracking problem areas, control scouting, monitor effectiveness of spraying on pest populations, and record spray records. Working with Strider’s decision making platform will allow growers, or farm managers, to determine when, where and how much to spray for maximum efficiency.
“We all have a mission: we need to make agriculture stronger and stronger to match the challenge that we have in the future to feed 9 billion people. We are changing agriculture today because we at Strider took this as a serious mission and are all coming together to make it happen.” Ed Siatti, VP of Sales for North America, Strider.
