North Shore's Autogrow plans to shift CEO Darryn Keiller to California to drive next stage growth for #AgTech indoor farms. The #MultiGrow product enables farmers to optimise climate, control, fertigation, dosing, batching and irrigation. The firm is looking for investment now.

The NZ Herald article says

"Talking to plants can get you funny looks but data science company Autogrow is developing artificial intelligence so the world's indoor commercial growers can do the next best thing – talk to an avatar about the health and progress of their crops.

Not content with lifting export destinations for its high-tech automated growing systems from 14 to 45 countries in the past three years, the Auckland-based agtech company is setting up shop in America's fresh produce-growing heart, California.

It is also moving into artificial intelligence (AI) to help feed growing populations and improve the profitability of under-pressure indoor growers and farmers."
