SupPlant Granted $2 Million to Develop Technology to Aid Small Farmers In Africa

SupPlant, the leading precision agriculture hardware-software solution, was granted $2M (1.6M Euros) from the National Centre for Research and Development of the Government of Poland to develop new smart irrigation technology suited for small farmers with land that is smaller than 10 hectares.

The technology will be developed in SupPlant’s new offices in Poland (opening in Jan 2021) over the next 30 months alongside Professor Waldemar Treder who specializes in Plant Management from the Research Institute of Horticulture in Skierniewice.
