Qeleo, an AI company, has announced a partnership with Terra Sana, an innovator in indoor growing facilities, biotechnology, and modular vertical farming systems. The partnership leverages Terra Sana's extensive reach to create sustainable agriculture solutions powered by Qeleo's AI technology.
Qeleo's AI will be used to optimize crop growth rates and yields. The AI has been trained with more than 30,000 species profiles, allowing it to provide constantly updated and accurate recommendations for each individual crop's nutrient and environmental needs. This enables Terra Sana to maximize crop yields while minimizing the use of resources such as water and energy and ultimately reducing the global impact of agriculture.
The partnership between Qeleo and Terra Sana comes at a time when global agriculture is facing significant challenges. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)1, the world's population is expected to reach 9.1 billion by 2050, and global food production will need to increase by 70% to meet the demand. This puts significant pressure on already strained natural resources, such as land and water, and further contributes to climate change.
"We are thrilled to partner with Terra Sana to bring our AI technology to the world of agriculture," said Qeleo CEO Tarka L'Herpiniere. "The world needs to leverage technology in order to stay ahead of humanity's rapidly changing needs. Often we are told that our present challenges are seemingly insurmountable. This is not the vision of Qeleo. At Qeleo, we believe that intelligent, powerful technology solutions can make life better for the planet and its people."
Terra Sana CEO Oliver Willett added, "We're amazed at how quickly Qeleo's AI toolkit has integrated into our own operations and how it's helping us to tackle our big KPIs: optimized crop growth and reduced environmental impact. We're working with Qeleo to offer these tools across the agritech industry. This partnership will not only benefit our company but the global agriculture industry as a whole."
