About Ukko Agro:
Ukko is a venture capital and industry-leaders backed applied research company that has created a field adaptive, predictive analytics platform. Our platform aggregates disconnected data from commercial farms to generate actionable advice on the application of crop inputs (pesticide, water, and nutrients), up to a week in advance.


The result is higher on-farm profitability through lower costs and more accurate application, leading to higher yields. It is delivered through a combination of in-field IoT sensors, advanced agriculture research, and data science-based predictive analytics. With this, we aim to solve one of the toughest challenges - helping farmers grow profitably in a sustainable way.


Our team is comprised of agriculture research scientists, technology professionals, and agriculture economics specialists. Our solution has enabled farmers to reduce pesticide usage by an average of 25%, without any yield losses, and apply sustainable agriculture practices across Canada and the United States. As we grow at a fast pace, you will have a direct impact on shaping the experience of commercial and enterprise customers in bringing innovative predictive analytics solutions to the agriculture industry.
