Pycno started in the UK in 2014 as an idea, to develop innovative products for agricultural purposes. Throughout our interactions with growers, farm managers and agronomists, it was clear that a quick and easy solution to get data off of the field, visualize, and process it, was crucial. After countless prototypes, in mid-2015, we started developing a new all-in-one sensor. This sensor would incorporate all the pieces that are usually sold as separate parts, the sensing elements (such as a soil sensor), the RTU and SIM, and the receiving software. Because we started from scratch, we saw a lot of the issues that plagued the industry such as dated 2G and CDMA modems, no APIs, and convoluted RTU firmware versions that were incompatible to various sensors. For a new farmer, that wants to use sensors in their growing cycle, the state of the ecosystem is very intimidating. A typical grower has to gather the potential sensors types, RTUs, and software he/she wants to use, and contact each vendor to ask for compatibility. Pycno's sensors allow friction-less installation and data collection, together with a powerful software, an API and export tools, because you own your data!Fast forward to today and we are very excited to offer 3 different lengths of sensors (2G and 4G), LoRa capabilities and a weather station (coming soon). We are currently in more than 26 countries and looking for partners to join us on our mission to modernize data collection in the field.
