Are You Ready for the Next Green Revolution?

Our vision is to make farm and field data the key ingredient for the next ‘Green Revolution’, spreading the benefits across the whole ecosystem, from farmer to consumer.

Inspired by our founding investor Yara, which was created to tackle a similar challenge more than 100 years ago, we strive for a future in which humanity has achieved a deep transformation in the way it feeds itself.

The key to unlock this new ‘green revolution’ lies in the possibility to find, organize and utilize the continuously growing amount of data generated every day in the world’s farms.

We believe that data can become knowledge, which in turn can generate the positive impact we need to collectively achieve.

We strive to maximize value creation from this knowledge in an equitable way through innovation and collaboration: starting with the farmers who face the biggest challenges of all, all the way down to the consumers, who should be empowered to make more conscious decisions.

Varda’s Mission

To enable field-level data to accelerate the transition towards a nature-positive food system

Agriculture is one of humanity's most ancient economic activities and sits at the bottom of our civilisation.

We are conscious

...that we face a narrowing window of opportunity to ensure that our planet maintains the ability to feed all forms of life in perpetuity, and we believe that change needs to happen fast.

We believe

...that understanding as granularly as possible what happens on the fields where our food is grown is essential to achieve fast, significant and long-lasting change.

We recognize

...that the way we grow our food can have major impact on the preservation of our natural capital and that the food industry can play a unique role to slow-down climate change and mitigate its worst effects.

Varda is a new ag-tech start-up sponsored by Yara to foster greater collaboration and facilitate field data discovery and sharing in order to support transformation in the agriculture & food industry.

We operate a digital platform to develop a more efficient market for farm & field data exchange across the whole ecosystem to make farming more sustainable, resilient and transparent.
