ImpactAlpha, June 15SupPlant‘s sensorless hardware collects real-time data on plants, soil and the climate conditions to help farmers make precise irrigation decisions.

The tech, which can help farmers save water, reduce costs and improve yield, is for “smallholders that can’t afford access to hardware-intense technology and unique knowledge,” said SupPlant’s Ori Ben Ner.

The Israeli agtech company has raised $10 million in a round led co-led by Boresight Capital, Menomadin Foundation, Smart-Agro Fund and Mivtach Shamir. SupPlant has raised $19 million.

It is aiming to reach 500,000 farmers in Kenya this year, and 1.5 million more in Africa and India next year.
