Precision Plant Systems Scores Big In Bend

November 20, 2009

Congratulations to our friends at Precision Plant Systems

The company took first place in the October 16, 2009, Bend Venture Conference. The Corvallis start-up was founded in 2006 and will qualify for the $120,000 prize, once it passes standard due diligence with the validation of market traction of its cropIQ system. The investment prize was largest in the event’s history.

The cropIQ system http://www.cropiq.com/ is a data integration platform for growers, consultants and grower associations to acquire and manage data gathered in the field and provide ground-breaking management and decision making tools.

The technology is partially based on work done at OSU by Les Fuchigami, OSU horticulture professor emeritus. More on the OSU connection…

Precision Plant Systems was also an exhibitor at the recent WIN 2009 event and an excellent example of the creative synergy that we can build on in the Willamette Valley. Innovational Musings plans to visit this innovative company in the next few weeks to shoot a video of their award winning technology.
