Founded: 2016

“Tortuga AgTech’s mission is to build a healthier society, and a thriving ecosystem, through smarter farming. To do this, They want to enable growers to sell better produce – unique, tasty, nutritious food, grown within hours of your plate. No nasty chemicals. 90% less water use. No exploited workers.

They’re doing this by building Digital Horticulture systems, made up of powerful technology like robotics, automation, and precision data analytics and machine learning. These systems will enable advanced growing methods to compete with scale agriculture, which means growers will be able to grow better produce that’s also better for the planet.

The automation of picking, packing, and trimming will reduce significantly the manual labor hours needed to grow produce. It will also increase yields through denser layouts and optimized grow conditions. And, they’ll help create full-time local technical jobs as well. And they do all of that while providing fresher, healthier, and more sustainable produce to the humans living near their grower customers’ operations.”
