Foster City, USA — November 25, 2022. Solena Ag Inc. has been selected as one of the seven startups to participate in the first sustainability in agriculture program hosted by SAP.iO Foundry Latin America.

Historically, decision-making on farming soils has been based on farmers’ experience (trial and error), which has produced inexact results and loss of crop profitability. Farming management has experienced historical transformations thanks to innovative technologies that improve soil health for sustainable agriculture.

On October 6, SAP.iO launched its first program focused on farming sustainability hosted by SAP.iO Foundry Latin America. Solena is proud to announce that it was selected to join the program. A jury of SAP experts, partners, clients, and investment funds oversaw the selection process. Over the next three months, Solena will build and develop a partnership with SAP through joint use case definitions, product integration, and various business development activities. Businesses that use SAP® solutions will participate in the program by supporting cohort selection and evaluating opportunities.

SAP.iO aims to drive innovation with startups by accelerating and scaling startup innovation. The goal is to transform how businesses are operated. This opportunity represents a significant step for Solena towards better integrating into the food production chain of value.

Solena Ag transforms soil data into diagnostic insight through its proprietary platform, “Prometheus,” which provides customized recommendations, helping farmers increase nutrients, productivity,6 and profitability while reducing their carbon footprint.

Solena aims to help agro-input suppliers/distributors and food companies to improve their efficiency and sustainability in the food production chain of value.
