Sencrop, Smart Agriculture to Support Framers

Our mission: helping farmers make better everyday decisions for a more comfortable approach to work, better yield, and more control over their environmental impact.

WHO WE ARE

Step into the Era of Smart Agriculture

Farmers used to have to tour their crops every day and tended to spray systematically to avoid diseases. The cost of such operations (money, time, and environmental impact) was high.

We have now entered the era of smart agriculture. Set up in the fields, our weather stations provide reliable, accurate, ultra-local data remotely. This data gives farmers their decision-making power back. It streamlines their daily tasks, rationalises the management of chemical inputs, helps them care for their crops and boosts their productivity.

ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS

Two Paths, One Story

In the beginning, there were two distinct paths, which merged into one story. These paths are Martin Ducroquet’s and Michael Bruniaux’s.

The former is the son of a grain grower, business school graduate and connected devices enthusiast. The latter is a computer engineer who loves anything tech. Their paths crossed at the heart of EuraTechnologies’ innovation hub. Their discussions led to the creation of Sencrop in 2016. The startup designs connected weather stations for farmers.
