As a winner in the Society category, Ecoation is being recognized for the impact of its advancements beyond the technical capabilities and in terms of what this technology means for the future of society. This award champions advancements that allow for the re-engineering of a better future while supporting those who will consume the technology in the process.

In Ecoation’s case, this reflects the company’s farmer-first mentality.

According to the company’s press release, the challenge aims to champion “the best innovative solutions to change our collective future with each award cluster representing a major trend that forecasts the future for our world: Society, Humanity, Energy, Health, Travel, Off-World, and Artistic Visions.”

With major category winners including SpaceX, XPrize, Switzerland-based Climeworks, and others, Ecoation “is honoured to be recognized for its Human Knowledge + Machine Precision approach to food production.”

From Closed Loop Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to tracking greenhouse climate anomalies to the square meter, Ecoation’s technology contributes towards securing more consistent crop yields, eliminating pesticides, and tackling the prevalent horticulture labour shortage.
