“Our mission is to make smallholder farmers wealthier by shipping monetisable robots. TartanSense will have the world’s largest fleet of agriculture robots in the next 18 months. We are grateful to have amazing investors like FMC Ventures, Omnivore, and Blume Ventures backing us in our passion to empower farmers,” said Jaisimha Rao, Founder, TartanSense.

TartanSense is helping smallholder farmers who struggle with low yields, primarily driven by two reasons – poor chemical spraying techniques and unreliable farm labour. TartanSense’s robots are an affordable precision agriculture solution for all major farming activities – sowing, spraying, weeding, and harvesting – which simultaneously drive down cultivation costs while improving crop yields.
