Answers to farmers, not more data

Answers to farmers, not more data

PowWow Energy (powwowenergy.com) is a SaaS company that leverages its Big Data platform to help growers in their daily operations, and save water and energy. Unlike existing solutions that use expensive hardware devices or require tedious work from consultants, our cloud-based machine learning platform provides simple answers to farmers with no up-front capital costs. We provide an integrated water and crop management solution for up to $50 per acre.

Our suite of applications includes the Pump Monitor™, which provides automated water records by leveraging existing smart meters from power utilities. It protects farmers from the operational downsides of anomalies such as leaks or falling water tables. The Irrigation Advisor™ simplifies irrigation scheduling solution by integrating data from the cloud (weather data and aerial images) and from local farm records (nutrient application and on-site sensors). Growers receive simple text messages in the field, not more data at the office.
