Fauna Smart Technologies is creating a new industrial platform for a healthy agriculture of the future. We create new uncontested markets – where we are writing the rules of the game, together with Mother Nature.
To create the healthiest agro-ecosystems of tomorrow by keeping pests (insect-pests and diseases) below the Economic Treshold Level: this means that pests are allowed to live on the crops, so long as they don’t damage them too much. This approach has its roots in the 1950’s where Integrated Pest Management (IPM) was first introduced and it revolves around the key concept of economic threshold which is based on pest species and how much it would cost to combat them versus how much economic damage they are likely to cause. The benefits of the method are minimal pesticide usage, minimal impact on non-pest species and minimal risk of resistant pests, all the while considering the economic impact on the farmer.
Within Fauna Smart Technologies we are lifting up the IPM knowledge using technology. We combine scientific knowledge about crop protection systems, we communicate and listen farmer’s needs and map out the right technologies and approach to monitor plants, and to unlock already existing plant potential to fight off pests and diseases. In this way, farmers will have better insight into crop production systems – due to early warning detections and predictions of plant pests. This will also allow more space for introducing biological control into IPM, leading to more sustainable approaches and greening of the systems.
We are creating the greenest agro-ecosystems possible.
Using an interdisciplinary approach towards solving the world’s food problems.
We don’t innovate to compete – but to change the rules of the game.
Look at the future – but also look at the past
If you would like to know more how we think about the future, but also how we looked at the past revolutions (what went wrong?) while structuring the IPM of the future, you are welcome to read the following article

Think before you build
How do we think behind the solutions we are building?
Modern crop protection strategies – coordinated by real-time pest and disease monitoring – are enabling the partnering of traditional crop protection techniques with plant defense response induction through strategies including the timely priming and activation of plant defense responses prior to pathogen and pest attack.
Let’s unlock the plant potential using smart-tech approach.
