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

Hardware / R&D team
Our R&D team – which develops all our stations in house – often receives awards for their unquestionable capacity for innovation and understanding of agricultural issues.
Since data is at the heart of our project, our team guarantees the reliability and custom nature of the data collected and transmitted through our stations.
Linked to our stations, the app is designed to be easy to use and allow farmers to make the best possible decisions based on the information collected.
The sales people are fully aware of the specific agricultural issues in the region/country. They assist future customers to offer them the most suitable solution for their needs.
