The Swedish agtech company IRRIOT has closed an investment round of SEK 5.5 million through investment from LRF Ventures. In 2022, IRRIOT will focus on scale up of sales and now the company gets an ideal partner for rapid growth.

Here is a testimonial from Lubera, a nursery in Switzerland who purchased the IRRIOT system from our German reseller Hermann Meyer.

We are very proud and excited about the fact that Startlife has chosen IRRIOT together with 8 other European agtech startups to be part of their market leading accelerator.

Can you tell us a little about the different cultivations and how they differ?

Yes, it is true that I have been involved in many installations during the spring. Everything from apple orchards, strawberry orchards and nurseries. Each cultivation is unique and the design of the irrigation systems varies – with it come different challenges, which I find extra rewarding.

Good news!
We are thrilled to announce that IRRIOT’s idea got recognized by the Swedish Department of Agriculture, which granted us initial financial support for setting up an Operational Group, which will work in the field of innovations and sustainability in agricultural sector and farming. The main task of the group is to identify major problems farmers facing in Sweden and also globally, define the project scope, prepare project plan, budget, develop pilots, to choose technology and partners for research, production, etc.

The results of the work of Operational Group will be the application to receive rural development funding from The agricultural European Innovation Partnership (EIP-AGRI) programme.

This development is possible thanks to the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas. More information about the fund could be found here.
