AgTech Insight, based in Salinas, California, and Agritecture, based in Brooklyn, New York, have announced the formation of a strategic alliance between the two firms. AgTech Insight will advise and provide services to Agritecture clients in the large scale outdoor agriculture industry while Agritecture will advise and provide services to AgTech Insight clients in the urban agriculture space. The focus of the mutually beneficial effort is aimed at improving both firms capabilities across a broader array of services for clients in the ag sector globally.
"The urban and indoor agriculture space is rapidly growing around the world and collaborating with Agritecture, given their leadership in their industry sector and global vision using innovation and best practices to help a growing population is a natural fit," Aaron Magenheim, founder of AgTech Insight, said, per a press release. “Over the past year, it has been great to work with David Ceaser and the Agritecture team sharing our expertise and working on projects together. There is a unique resource we have been developing together which we will be sharing with the world soon and are excited to be working together to bridge the urban and large scale agriculture sectors.”
"Agritecture is very excited about our collaboration with AgTech Insight," David Ceaser, Agritecture's horticultural specialist said, per the release. “ Urban and peri-urban farming is generally smaller scale agriculture and focuses on smaller more niche consumer markets. But, as far as the farming goes, there is no reason to re-invent the wheel. There is a ton that we can learn from large scale outdoor ag. The vast amount of experience and knowledge that Aaron and his team bring to the table is invaluable for us.”
