15.3% of farm produce is going to waste even before leaving the farm.

That's 1.2 billion tonnes per year.

A $20 device that attaches to your smartphone is set to solve this problem for good.

A tiny microscope reduces disturbances when scanning food samples and empowers the app-based AI to reach 90% accuracy in detecting disease or parasites with less than 50 pictures. Giving farmers anywhere around the globe certainty that the quality of their produce meets customer requirements and can go into supermarket shelves instead of the garbage dump.
