Asilomar Bio

Asilomar Bio develops crop protection chemistry to help growers deal with environmental stress in the field, one of the biggest constraints on yield. We have discovered a compound that enhances the ability of crops to access water and tolerate drought stress, leading to healthier plants and increased yields. We are developing this technology into a product that will enable growers to maintain yields and margins in challenging conditions. There is an exciting potential for using this chemistry along with integrated analysis of real-time data and precision application to sense and respond to changing weather during the growing season.

Weed Control: Robotics and Agriculture Automation
Blue River Technology is developing smart implements that provide an alternative to the expensive and environmentally damaging practices of chemical-intensive agriculture. With breakthrough computer vision techniques for identifying weeds and selective robotics for elimination of unwanted plants, Blue River Technology’s equipment is significantly more efficient than traditional methods of weed control. Our automated solution is particularly well-suited for fields with herbicide-resistant weeds and for organic production.
