Semios is a precision farming technology company dedicated to reducing and mitigating risks for growers of tree fruits, nuts and other crops. We leverage our proprietary, in-canopy wireless network and extensive Internet of Things (IoT) sensors that feed our big data analytics engine to help producers manage insect pests, disease, weather and irrigation. Crop insights are stored in the cloud allowing growers to receive alerts and to view data from anywhere on any device in real-time. We improve sustainability, reduce inputs and increase the value of harvests. Delivered as a full service solution, Semios helps growers predict and proactively respond to many of the issues that impact optimum crop yield.
