Strategic Irrigation Management

GroGuru is all about strategic irrigation management. We help farmers make more money by increasing crop yield, while at the same time more efficiently using water and other scarce resources like fertilizer, energy, and labor, in a sustainable way.

GroGuru’s team includes experts in wireless communication, crop science, artificial intelligence, software, sensor technology, and systems engineering. We also have the domain expertise in farming and agronomy necessary to solve the significant problem of optimal irrigation management for farmers.

GroGuru monitors soil using its patented wireless underground system, WUGS, that enables the permanent installation of soil sensors, even in annual field crops like corn and soybeans, eliminating the need for annual installation and removal of sensors required by all competitive alternatives in the market. We bury the sensors below the till depth, so that farming can occur over the top.

The GroGuru solution is 30x more scalable than alternatives, by a combination of increasing the install window and reducing the installation frequency. This permanent installation gives critical and consistent data to farmers that currently is not available.

GroGuru adds information about the soil, the crop, application of water via irrigation equipment, weather, and spatial data in the cloud, and then uses artificial intelligence, or AI, to create recommendations to farmers about when and how much to irrigate.

The GroGuru software as a service (SaaS) provides a best-in-class solution, giving farmers the power of expert agronomic recommendations, and the GroGuru user interface is easy to use and very intuitive for farmers.

GroGuru typically sells through irrigation equipment and farm supply dealers to family farmers with farms ranging from 1,000 to 30,000 acres and some commercial farms over 50,000 acres.The GroGuru solution is a total game changer for annual field crop farming, which represents the vast majority of crops grown for food.

GroGuru is solving a problem of global and catastrophic proportions where there are 800 million chronically undernourished people in the world today, 70% of the fresh water supply is already being used for agriculture irrigation, the amount of arable land is shrinking, and where we need to increase food production by 70% by the year 2050 just to keep pace with population growth.

The market for GroGuru’s products is massive. In the US alone, there are 313 million acres of farms, and 52 million of those acres are irrigated. Globally, farmland is over 3 billion acres.
