Spensa Technologies gains $1.3 million investment

The US precision agriculture start-up company, Spensa Technologies (West Lafayette, Indiana), has received $1.3 million from multiple investors and venture programmes to develop its pest monitoring business. The company is launching a new scouting application, OpenScout, which helps growers and crop advisers to record scouting notes and photographs as they walk the fields. It has also upgraded a pest management programme, MyTraps, which tracks insect populations to reduce crop damage and pesticide use. Spensa's third product, Z-Trap, is an insect trapping device that automatically counts targeted pests and sends the data to a mobile phone or computer.
