FarmWise raises $45M for Series B Funding


FarmWise, a Santa Clara and Salinas, CA-based farm automation startup, raised $45M in Series B funding.

The round was led by Fall Line Capital and Middleland Capital, with participation from GV and Taylor Farms, as well as existing investors Calibrate Ventures, Playground Global, SVG Ventures and the venture arm of Wilbur Ellis.

The company will use the funds to accelerate its plans to release a vegetable robotic weeder that sets new standards in reliability and versatility. This will allow more vegetable farmers to benefit from its technology, as well as row crops farmers who are also challenged by diminishing resources.

FarmWise’s CEO Sebastien Boyer is responsible for developing innovative systems that streamline farm operations and improve food production efficiency. The company’s first product, Titan, is an automated mechanical weeder powered by AI and robotics. It detects and removes weeds with centimeter accuracy without the use of chemicals.
The company now has over 450,000,000 scanned images of individual crops, after 15,000 hours of commercial work.
