Prospera Technologies Inc. is a leading AI data analytics company, specializing in machine learning. With a focus on agriculture, Prospera provides a transformative, digital farming system to vegetable greenhouse growers worldwide that generates insights and optimizes the growing process.
The collaboration brings together the strengths of Prospera’s data and AI capabilities with Bayer’s expertise in vegetable production, crop protection, and digital transformation, to provide an all-in-one, cloud-based service. This will help transform grower operations and enable greater access to high-quality fruits and vegetables.
