Our Tech and Success Stories
Our global thought leadership
1️⃣ Koidra has won the autonomous greenhouse challenges, back to back. Each time, we outperformed the reference expert growers, who outperformed every other team.
How a former Microsoft researcher used AI to grow award-winning lettuce from 5,000 miles away
It's pretty impressive to grow award-winning lettuce in a greenhouse competition against 42 teams from nearly two dozens countries. It's even more remarkable when you do it from 5,000 miles away. Koidra, a Seattle-based "AI of things" startup, this summer won the international Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge - its second time claiming the title.
2️⃣ Koidra is the only startup in its category that has received U.S. federal as well as Canadian provincial research grants, collaborating with the top scientists for Controlled Environment Agriculture in North America.
Taxonomy of Koidra’s tech
We have won back-to-back autonomous greenhouse challenges. We are providing our autonomous growing solutions to some of the top greenhouse operators in North America.
We are re-designing industrial automation in the era of IoT and cloud computing. Our technology makes industrial automation smarter, easier to deploy, easier to evolve, and hence more scalable.

AIoT (AI on IoT data) is at the core of our research to make automation smarter, more efficient, and more scalable. Our cross-disciplinary tech is a fusion of Machine Learning, IoT, and fundamental sciences to enhance digital decision making beyond what humans can do alone.
Our efficient growing solution not just increases the food yield (sustaining the growing population) but also reduces the amount of fertilizers, water, and pesticide, for each kilogram of food that is produced. This has a cascading effect as it relieves the pressure from traditional farming, directs farming future away from pollution, towards sustainability.
