“The Internet of Things (IoT) is a massive deployment of technology products with a global impact. Agriculture technology, or AgTech, will be a direct beneficiary of IoT," said Rory Moore, Co-Founder and CEO of EvoNexus. "GroGuru is a prototypical IoT AgTech company. The GroGuru team of business leadership, engineers, agronomy experts and sales are deploying their breakthrough Wireless Underground Sensor System (WUGS) in over a dozen US locations and in a variety of crops.

GroGuru is a privately held company based in San Diego, CA that provides precision soil and irrigation monitoring systems to the commercial agriculture industry. GroGuru is focused on enabling farmers to increase crop yields while optimally use water and fertilizer. GroGuru sells an innovative hardware-enabled subscription-based solution to farmers that enables optimal irrigation. GroGuru’s 100 percent wireless underground technology enables a permanent installation of soil sensors, even in annual field crops like corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton and sorghum, that have a destructive harvest. GroGuru’s WUGS-based systems can be buried below the till depth and communicate through several feet of soil wirelessly, thus eliminating the need for the sensors to be annually installed and removed for seeding and harvesting, respectively, for these annual crops. GroGuru is a portfolio company at the EvoNexus technology incubator, the premier technology incubator in Southern California.
