About Us

We use machine learning to solve the biggest challenges in agriculture

Why is it that neighbouring fields, with identical growing conditions, can produce such drastically different yields? This was the question that drove us to establish Prospera, and it’s what still drives us today.


Using our background in data science and machine learning, we explored ways to bring more certainty to an unpredictable industry. As the current agricultural revolution unfolds, digitalization will become the engine of crop production - to meet rising population demands and ensure environmental sustainability.


Taking a ground-up approach, our technology enables growers to make more informed, efficient, and scientific decisions. We make agriculture not only predictable, but optimizable across the entire growth cycle. Our technology advances agricultural productivity by helping growers do more with fewer resources.


Our history

From greenhouses to open fields, take a look at Prospera’s journey since our establishment in 2014.

2014

Company founded

We started our journey to understand why similar fields produce dramatically different yields.

2015

Spain Greenhouse Market Entry

Greenhouses provided consistent growth cycles to conduct our research methodologically, collect vast amounts of data and measure results.

2016

Expansion into Mexico Greenhouses

2017

Open-Field Exploration in USA

Applying our knowledge and application in greenhouses, we started focusing on open-fields.

Macro Product Launch

Detected anomalies in greenhouses and provided irrigation management solutions.

2018

Strategic Partnership with Valmont Industries

Together, we aimed to transform the center pivot from an irrigation machine to an autonomous crop-management tool.

2019

Insights Product Launch

The launch of Valley Insights was so successful, we expanded its availability into 4 new states, quadrupling the coverage area.

2020

Named a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer

99% Accuracy of Imagery Detections

Successful detection capability due to robust data sets and powerful ML algorithms

2021

Valmont Industries Acquires Prospera

Created the largest global, vertically-integrated artificial intelligence company in agriculture

Recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor in AI for Computer Vision

Our data-led approach

Optimizing agriculture with data is extraordinarily complex. There are a large number of parameters to consider - their interactions vary and are hard to predict. To meet these challenges, we’ve developed some of the world’s most advanced, artificial intelligence technologies in-house.

We analyse field images to identify pests and diseases, monitor agro-technical activities and collect yield data. We use Deep Learning techniques to solve multi-dimensional planning and assignment optimization problems across massive data sets. And we extract insights from multiple data sources that are harmonized in an advanced Big Data framework.

We’re data scientists
– in muddy boots

As a Valmont ® company, we’re the largest vertically-integrated AI company in agriculture - leading the evolution of autonomous crop management around the globe. Our team of computer scientists, physicists, and agronomists work closely with the experts at Valley® Irrigation to offer you the most comprehensive, advanced and useful technologies in the field.
