Agricolus is an innovative startup working in Smart Farming sector. It was officially founded in February 2017 in Perugia, Umbria – the “green heart” of Italy – and it aims to support farmers and professionals in simplifying and enhancing the work in the field by using innovative technologies of data collection and analysis.
