EarthOptics is building a global soil cloud for more sustainable agricultural management. We create intelligent technology that provides revolutionary insights into soil health and management.
EarthOptics is a young, independent company with new ideas; we don’t sell seed, fertilizer or crop protection products. We see soil. Differently. Our company is an organization of people with diverse backgrounds who believe in agriculture, creativity and great science.
Below-ground precision and innovation in the soil space is long overdue. We believe strongly that point of care soil health–physical, chemical and biological–can be delivered in real time. Key is our belief that high yields are synonymous with soil health and growers can manage for both.
We deal with advanced technologies that we pledge to use carefully and ethically. Important is the fact that success with EarthOptics products depends upon data sharing among growers, crop advisors and EarthOptics. We understand that farmgate data is valuable and we believe that it belongs to the grower. Accordingly, our data commitment is:
- To be transparent in our use of farmgate data
- To make it secure
- To remove personal identifiers when aggregated data is analyzed
