We like to say we are a startup with significance, but don’t just take our word for it:

NAMED BEST STARTUP AT WORLD’S LARGEST TECH SHOW CES IN LAS VEGAS- Engadget

“Plenty of startups promise solutions to problems that are either overblown or don't really exist, but we can't say the same about Amber Agriculture. With Amber's array of sensors, farmers can more easily check the quality of their stored grain and get their wares to the companies that make our food at the right time. Beyond ensuring these farmers get the biggest return on their crop yields, the ability to monitor for the conditions that lead to spoilage could eventually help whole countries deal with food supply issues. Long story short: Amber's is a savvy approach to a pressing problem most people don't even know about-”


TESTIMONY TO THE UNITED STATES SENATE AGRICULTURE COMMITTEE- Ken Dallmier, President of Clarkson Grain

“A working system is being commercialized by Amber Agriculture whereby a transmitting puck about the size of a key-fob is inserted into grain at the field which is readable throughout the supply chain to the end-user”
