ImpactAlpha, May 17 — French agtech venture Sencrop provides microclimate information to 20,000 farmers in Europe from its network of ultra-local weather stations. The data helps farmers monitor extreme weather conditions and manage water stress, diseases, pests and other risks.

“As the prices of agricultural inputs increase and the weather becomes more unstable and critical,” said Sencrop’s Michael Bruniaux, the company helps farmers reduce risks “and limit their environmental impact, while increasing profitability.”
