Syndex facilitates regulatory requirements as well as communication, document management and a growing suite of analytics to provide valuation confidence.
Regen’s award-winning technology monitors irrigation scheduling with farm-specific data to real-time sensors and localised weather forecasts. It gives farmers recommendations on managing water and mineral levels, with case studies showing annual savings of well over $50,000 on a 350-hectare farm.
Regen’s products will be used to monitor the adherence of 200 farms to the Waimakariri Irrigation Scheme and further growth in this area is expected.
While the company is already cashflow positive, the capital raising will accelerate the path to international growth".
