Growerbot uses open-source hardware and software to help people everywhere grow more food with less work. Our solar-powered soil sensors and irrigation controllers share data over wireless connections, allowing growers to monitor all of the most essential environmental criteria for plants. As more users share data, we'll be able to help predict crop disease outbreaks earlier, quantify the benefits of sustainable farming practices, and fundamentally advance our understanding of how best to grow food in the real world. And, maybe I'll even be able to keep my lettuce alive for more than a week!
