Will Silicon Valley ag tech really grow with farmers?

Will Silicon Valley ag tech really grow with farmers

AgTech Insights, a consulting and investment firm, talks with a prospective client at the AgTech Silicon Valley 2015 conference held by Royce Law Firm.

If you’ve any doubt that technology is in a rush to disrupt agriculture, consider the scene at this week's AgTech Silicon Valley 2015 conference.

Amid well-attended sessions covering the Internet of Things in farming, water reuse technology and agricultural data — where neatly-dressed Silicon Valley types mixed with suntanned and scruffy-shoed farmers — one session was standing room only.

It was the pitch session where entrepreneurs got four minutes to sell an ag tech business concept to venture capitalists and angel investors. One-time farmers, chemistry Phds and data experts pitched electric motor tractors, solar-powered sensor tools that pinpoint soil needs around individual plants and an app for monitoring food waste in one’s personal lifestyle.

Tables outside the pitch room were lined with already launched products in the new world of ag tech.
