Agtech: Munich Startups in the Agricultural Industry

Agtech stands for ‘agricultural technology’ and includes all of the technical innovations that make farming, landscaping and aquaculture more digital, more data-driven and more sustainable. There are also some Munich startups involved in the scene. We have five to share with you today.

Agrando is a poster child of the agtech industry. The startup has developed a trading platform where farmers can ask for offers from retailers for products like seeds, fertilizer or feed, and also compare offers and centrally document orders. The best offer can be booked through the platform with a simple click. In an interview with Munich Startup, founder Jonathan Bernwieser explained more about how his solution works. With it, he has not only been able to get users on board, but has also raised capital. In a Series A round, the latest amount totaled 12 million euros. With the investment, the young company located in the Munich Technology Center (MTZ) is planning, among other things, to drive forward its internationalization and scaling. (Photo: Agrando)
