In this episode, we (once again) teamed up with our podcast partners at Failure - the Podcast to chat with Startup Spotlight 2020 Week #1 winners Cloud Agronomics.
Have you ever looked out over the Midwest farmlands while taking a cross country flight? Just another pretty view, you ask? The guests of this podcast, Mark Tracy, CEO and Alex Zhuk, Co-Founder, think not.
A picture can be worth a whole lot and a cornfield from on high is the real money shot. Imagine, if you could identify rows of maze ripening ahead of schedule or under siege by the infamous corn borer. (Yes, unlike earwigs, corn borers do really like corn). Yields might go up and costs down. And, while most city dwellers can size up a garden in seconds, gauging the health of a mega-acre factory farm is another matter entirely.

They provide next-generation analytics on crop performance that changes the way the industry looks at crop yields, pricing, and other critical decisions related to food. Cloud Agronomics wants to enable the digital revolution towards sustainable food production.
Join us and the team from Failure - the Podcast in one of the few level-headed discussions they’ve had since college with the management and science gurus behind this very interesting startup.
