We follow Flurosat’s journey into the US with CEO and Founder Anastasia Volkova, a young and vibrant aeronautical engineer, 2019 evokeAG. speaker and all-around star for Australian agriculture. She talks us through their market approach and early learnings, requiring a swift expansion of crop varieties to meet US farmers’ needs – now capable of monitoring any type of crop grown on Earth.

The Australian crop monitoring startup now covers 10 million hectares in 45 countries – a huge uplift from 15 countries in 2019,  but it hasn’t been without its challenges.

Read more about her experience and opportunities in the US here.
