The alliance will offer U.S. farmers, particularly in the Midwest access to the Augmenta System, a revolutionary VRA control device that fully automates a range of in-season inputs such as nitrogen, fungicides, plant growth regulators and desiccants. It analyses, learns and applies in-field and in real-time to optimize inputs according to actual need. This reduces waste, soil chemical loads and input costs while maximizing yield potential. As a result, sustainability opportunities are created and profitability improved.

"In the face of ever-rising costs and environmental concerns, the Augmenta System offers a proven, no-hassle solution designed to improve efficiency and farming outcomes. That's why we see it as a perfect fit for our customers," said Sam Christianson, Director of Precision and Machine Control Systems for Titan Machinery. 

"Augmenta is delighted to have partnered with Titan. We both realize that getting the tech out there into farmers' hands is the only way forward for the industry. The benefits can then speak for themselves," Dimitri (Jim) Evangelopoulos, Augmenta Co-founder and General Manager. 

The Augmenta System integrates with normal agronomic practices and requires no specialization or additional logistics. This solution also retrofits to pre-existing farming equipment, making it ideal for both producers new to VRA and those who are looking to maximize established VRA practices,  regardless of the size of the farming operation.

The creation of the Augmenta System is the manifestation of years of hard work, exhaustive testing and sustained effort undertaken so as to make that aspiration a reality. It has been awarded EIMA's First Prize for 'Technological Innovation' and the 'Outstanding Agricultural Aspects Blue Award' for 2020/21.

The core of the Augmenta Team currently comprises +40 members, all with high-level academic backgrounds and specializations (M.Sc or PhD in Engineering, Robotics, Agriculture, Maths and Business).

We are software and hardware engineers, agronomists, manufacturing specialists, operation and communication experts with the commercial and technical know-how to make innovative agricultural ideas a reality.

How it all started
Frustrated by the inefficiencies of traditional farming methods and the impracticalities of precision tools, Co-founders Dimitri (Jim) Evangelopoulos and George Varvarelis used their academic training in electronics and farming backgrounds to find a better way. They came up the Augmenta System - the world's first real-time, camera and AI based VRA hardware platform. Retrofitted to pre-owned farming equipment and fully supported by full range of operational analytics, reports, fleet management tools etc. via the Augmenta Web Portal, it offers farmers unparalleled efficiency and ease-of-use.

The Co-founders set up Augmenta Technologies in 2016 and set out to prove to the world that through optimization, not only is better sustainability possible, but farmers, irrespective of the size of their operations, can reap substantial financial rewards while achieving it.

How it's going
So far, Augmenta has raised more than $11m in venture capital funding (including from big players like CNHi) to bring sustainable precision automation to farmers. The Augmenta System has made important inroads into making farmers aware that there is a better way. Now commercially available in a multitude of countries in Europe, CIS, North and South America, and Australia, it is set to take the agricultural world by storm.

Where we're headed
Our mission is to 'augment' the capacity of arable land so as to help feed a growing world sustainably. Through the optimization of critical farming operations made possible by our exclusive technology, we can reduce both the chemical load in soils, input costs and operational inefficiencies , while improving the quality of produce and profitability.
