We use computer vision to identify weeds in organic crop fields and then selectively eliminate them using very hot organic oil. Our product mounts behind a tractor.

We are an alternative to chemical fertilizers which organic farmers can't use. Our first target is organic vegetables growers who currently spend upto $1000 per acre to weed their fields by hand.

Longer term will move to weeding of corn in glyphosate resistant areas. $25B/yr are spent in herbicides.

Update: 5/13. We've started recurring revenue in lettuce thinning - an application that is very well suited to our technology. Our first customer is the largest lettuce grower in the world. Out team has now 15 people including 4 PhDs, an agronomist, and experienced business people in the Ag-tech area.
