Hortau, a provider of precision irrigation management systems and services for agriculture, today was named to the THRIVE AgTech Top 50 list of companies shaping the future of agriculture for 2018, according to AgFunder News.
It’s the second straight year Hortau has been named to the THRIVE AgTech Top 50, created by Salinas, Calif.-based SVG Partners’ corporate innovation program, which “connects major corporate brands like Coca-Cola, DuPont Pioneer, Trimble, Land O’Lakes, Wells Fargo and others with promising growth stage companies for pilots and partnerships.”
The Top 50 companies “are scouted for exemplary leadership, technology, and traction, and selected based on alignments with specific organizational criteria and industry pain points outlined by corporate partners,” noted THRIVE in a statement.
“The year’s honorees span a diverse range of technology types covering everything from accelerated gene editing to novel farming systems to farm management platforms,” said SVG Partners/THRIVE CEO and founder John Hartnett. “The need for agtech innovation is more urgent than ever, and we are delighted to bring these technologists together with our corporate partners to advance the industry.”
