Two venture capital firms have invested $9 million in a seed round for a tech company called Enriched Ag. Business Development Director Mike Komp says this grazing and carbon insights platform provides ranchers an opportunity to manage and monetize their pasture ground. “Look at all of the technology that’s deployed in row crops, we don’t really think there’s a parallel in rangeland, today.” Within the next six months, Enriched Ag plans to introduce its first round of technology. “A lot of the money that’s coming in is focused on actual on-ranch technology, like drones, soil sensors, different types of cameras that can provide information about the forage in pastures and when to move and rotate animals.” Enriched Ag was founded by a team that comes from well-known technology brands, including Apple and Google.
