Why it matters:

Blue White Robotics’ self-described “robotics as a service” platform combines robotic tractors with management software so that one human can control a fleet of autonomous vehicles to fulfill a number of different farming tasks: spraying, harvesting, disking, and seeding, to name a few.

The company says its platform can address key labor and food security issues by improving productivity and worker safety while also collecting more data for precise insights that can increase yields and reduce the amount of inputs needed for crops.

Daniel Aronovitz, vice president at Insight Partners, noted that because Blue White retrofits existing farm systems, there is an inherent ease of adoption that “will allow the product to quickly scale within the industry and enter new markets.”

Blue White Robotics was founded in 2017 and, including this round, has raised $50 million to date.
