SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — FluroSat, a world leader in agronomic decision support and remote crop sensing, announced today that Gabriel Wilmoth will join the company as an independent board director. «We are thrilled to have Gabriel join FluroSat as we expand our footprint across the United States and into South American markets,» says company CEO Dr Anastasia Volkova. «We put great emphasis on delivering best-in-class customer experience together with timely crop insights and recommendations. Gabriel’s unique perspective from working with multiple, fast-growing agtech firms will help us scale sustainably and serve our customers even better.»

To FluroSat, Gabriel brings a rare combination of skills from being «on both sides of the table» first as an investor and then as a start-up executive. During his time at Syngenta Ventures, he made early investments in some of the sectors’ most exciting companies including Blue River Technology (acquired by John Deere for $300M), GreenLight Biosciences (raised a $100M Series D), Sound Agriculture (raised a $22M Series C), as well as several others. More recently, as COO of the precision ag company Growers, Gabriel helped the leadership team raise $12M from top ag investors, expand acres under management by 5x to 20+ US states, and achieve a successful exit in an acquisition by ICL in February 2020.

«Two things I always look for in companies I work with are real agronomic value creation and an incredible team,» Wilmoth explains. «The powerhouse team at FluroSat has solved several pain points for crop advisors. Their FluroSense™ platform provides agronomists with easy-to-use, real-time, field-specific crop insights, like N recommendations, without all the tedious data entry. It enables better recommendations at scale and helps monitor the impacts. I feel excited to work with FluroSat and to help them accelerate the broader adoption of precision agriculture.»
