About: Ceres is an aerial spectral imaging and analytics company that provides imagery-based intelligence and analytics solutions to farmers. With Ceres’ best-in-class technology, growers can detect and fix water, fertilizer, and pest disease problems weeks before the naked eye.
Why we invested: When we invested in Ceres, we had been investigating the AgTech space for 2-3 years. Ceres has a unique approach that mixes cutting-edge imaging technology, an army of agronomists, and empathy for its customer base – the farmers. We believe computer vision like Ceres’ is an increasingly valuable technology for real-world use cases.
