Ecologists and technologists:

A new breed of team.

We are a team of entrepreneurs, environmentalists, engineers and business professionals united by a reverence for nature, a passion for responsible science, and a commitment to humanity.

Agbotic grows from a desire to farm in the smartest possible way - healthier for people and the planet.


Our SmartFarm platform proves that responsible technology can make regenerative farming profitable for farmers and accessible to communities everywhere. 


Our vision is a healthier world where everyone has access to local, organic food, and regenerative  plant-based products.  A world where carbon-negative farms feed their communities with complete meals without having to choose between making a living and nurturing the land. A world where we give more than we take—the way it was always meant to be.
