📊 LAYERS, our
software, offers analytics to the agricultural sector with a large
direct impact. For example, clients can improve the efficiency in
treatments (sowing, fertilization, irrigation, etc.) and generate
estimations in yield (tonnes per hectare), as well as quality estimates
(e.g. soybeans protein quantity) for different crops. We know that
producers, the agroindustry itself, or even insurance companies and
traders in the agronomical sector are facing three main challenges, with
a large impact in their gross margin:

· Crop Management

· Production yield and logistics

· Economical yield

. Climate change risk assessment

💧 💚 LAYERS helps
minimize these risks through a high-quality continuous monitoring and
predictions. We want to make LAYERS the core of all the yield-related
decisions in the agribusiness value-chain using data and statistics. Our
slogan is

“Reshaping the future increasing land efficiency”

👾 The LAYERS Product Team is
the main area of the company, where 13 persons are distributed in three
squads: QA-Tooling, Agronomy and UX/UI. Three-four weeks sprints are
combined with sprint demos where all the company is updated with the
news in the product by all the members of the product team.

prognosis is presented in an analytical and insightful web dashboard
formats. Thanks to this, our customers can monitor their crops and
perform better business decisions in their agro-industrial companies.
