Ukrainian Anastasia Volkova, startup founder of FluroSat (now Regrow Ag), has come in at number one in The Australian newspaper’s inaugural edition of The List: 100 Innovators!
- Since 2017 and with the support of CRDC, Anastasia’s gone on to secure millions in investment to further develop the state-of-the-art remote sensing technology that allows farmers to measure crop health ‘from the air’.
- With the acquisition of Dagan’s soil modelling capability and combining it with FluroSat to create Regrow, there is an enhanced focus on sustainable agriculture by using scientifically vetted crop and soil models, connectivity to farm management platforms and terabytes of satellite imagery to support equitable ecosystem markets and programs.
- The Australian says the Top 100 list celebrates and highlights the future-focused leaders, ingenuity and products that are ‘set to make Australia an innovation nation’.
- The list is curated and edited by The Australian’s technology editor David Swan and covers categories including energy, technology, education, medicine, agriculture, food, sport and the arts.
