Crover grain storage
Crover - The AgriTech startup that's aiming to reduce grain storage losses by identify grain disease or spoilage at the earliest opportunity

crover logoWe have written quite a bit about the agri-tech sector in recent months, with the likes of Phytoponics, smart beehive monitor ApisProtect, and CropSafe, to name a few. Agri-tech is not only an interesting sector taking care of one of the most important things in our lives - food! - but it is one that continues to innovate at a rapid pace, and we don’t see ourselves running short of agri-tech startups any time soon.

Next up is Edinburgh-based startup Crover. Crover has developed a system to monitor grain stores to ensure that any sign of disease or spoilage is picked up on as early as possible.

Crover say that they are the inventors of and only experts in granular locomotion, and their patent-pending technology is based on years of granular matter research.

crover screenThe Crover solution is a small robotic device that moves about grain silos with a suite of sensors and science. It monitors grain silos in real time, and is able to give exact data on the local conditions inside, across the whole store of grain, rather than estimates. This allows intervention at the first sign of spoilage or infestation, greatly reducing grain wastage and greenhouse emissions, and saving the grain owner up to £60k per silo.

Crover’s Lorenzo Conti won the Smarter Future award for October’s Shell LiveWIRE this year, netting themselves a £5k cash prize. Not long after, they followed it up with a Wild Card Award win from Scottish EDGE. It’s no wonder they are winning awards left, right, and centre, as this is a valuable solution to a big problem. We look forward to seeing their next win!
