Honolulu US agriculture technology company Smart Yields has selected The Hague (The Netherlands) as the location for its European operations.
Smart Yields uses the Internet of Things (IoT) to help small-and-medium-size farmers to farm smarter. Smart Yields connects farmers, their communities, municipalities, universities and agricultural researchers through crowd-sourced data gathered from a network of integrated agricultural sensors. The raw data covering everything from soil health to inputs such as water, energy and nutrients is translated by Smart Yields into actionable insight for the benefit of farmers.
“The Netherlands is changing the way small- and medium-size farmers monitor and cultivate their crops, and we want to help bring those innovations to the world, aligning their farming frameworks with other global best practices,” said Vincent Kimura, CEO of Smart Yields.
Smart Yields is also launching a partnership with Sensoterra, an Amsterdam-based leader in low-cost, soil moisture monitoring hardware. Smart Yields will pair its data platform and easy-to-use mobile interface with Sensoterra’s wireless hardware.
Smart Yields is part of West Holland’s growing agro-technology and social-impact movement, supported by InnovationQuarter and The Hague Business Agency.
