Resson, a fast-growing data-driven agriculture technology company, recently announced that the global agriculture company Monsanto, through its venture capital arm Monsanto Growth Ventures, is now backing Resson as a strategic investor. Monsanto Growth Ventures is the lead investor in Resson’s $US11 million (approximately CDN$14 million) Series B investment round.

Resson helps large and small agriculture companies, agricultural service providers and individual growers boost productivity and profits with near real-time predictive analysis for crop management. The company’s Resson Agricultural Management and Analytics System (RAMAS®) integrates large-scale cloud-based data analytics with sensor fusion and robotic platforms to assess crop status and health, providing operators with the information required to optimize agricultural operations.

“Resson has been able to scalably move beyond NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) to detect and diagnose in-season anomalies impacting yield,” said Ryan Rakestraw, Venture Principal at Monsanto Growth Ventures. “We envision this impressive data-driven technology helping to improve yields, while reducing costs across a number of crops and cropping systems. We’re looking forward to working closely with Resson as its team continues to develop a predictive solution that could benefit the entire global agriculture industry.”

Resson is currently expanding its product development and sales and marketing efforts, and adding staff to its technical development team in Fredericton while also opening a new business office in San Jose, Calif.
“Monsanto is one of the world’s top agriculture companies and its support will help us continue to develop a product that helps large and small farms improve crop production,” said Jeff Grammer, Resson Executive Chairman.
Other investors in Resson’s Series B round include Build Ventures, Rho Canada Ventures, New Brunswick Innovation Foundation, BDC Capital and East Valley Ventures.
