We seek solutions designed to reduce energy, water, and consumable material waste throughout the various phases of the plantation and transformation of tobacco, using renewable energies and innovative resources.
The technologies we are looking for include, among others, IoT solutions, data analysis tools, and AI programs.
Tobacco farming is a noble art that requires in-depth knowledge of the plant, which has given specialized farmers a means to work for centuries.
However, it is also true that the arrival of new technologies could lead to much more accelerated development of agritech solutions, which aren’t currently widespread in tobacco plantations and their transformation.
These solutions mainly look at sustainability and mechanization, but some also integrate innovative business opportunities.
Terraventura was born to face these challenges, calling all agritech startups to develop a proof of concept (PoC) capable of helping farmers in three distinct ways.
Bettering water and energy efficiency inside processes to get to zero waste solutions for the plantation and transformation of tobacco
Bettering quality and efficiency of the work made by the people involved in the plantation and transformation of tobacco
Helping agricultural entrepreneurs with the training needed to seize new business opportunities
