Zordi: Revolutionizing Agriculture with Advanced Technologies

The application of advanced technologies in agriculture requires upgrades but brings significant advantages. When a robotics engineer and a sixth-generation farmer decide to start a joint venture, they are faced with a major problem – climate change. In 2020, Gilwoo Lee, an expert in robotics, and Casey Call, a farmer, founded Zordi, an agricultural platform that combines artificial intelligence and robotics with greenhouse plant cultivation. Lee, who recently graduated from the University of Washington, was confined at home during the wildfires. “It was a powerful signal of climate change. I was already committed to starting my own company with something where my robotics and artificial intelligence can make a difference when it comes to impact,” Lee said. Call, the chief grower and agronomist at Zordi, says he has seen the impact of sustainability on his family’s 12,000 hectares of land in western New York, where they grow peas, beans, corn, carrots, soybeans, and potatoes. “Throughout my life, it has been convincing that agriculture must become more efficient,” Call said.

Zordi, an agricultural startup supported by Khosla Ventures, utilizes robotics, artificial intelligence, and conventional plant cultivation knowledge to grow strawberries in greenhouses in the northeast. Under human supervision, robots perform everything from planting to harvesting unique types of strawberries imported from Japan and Korea. The company uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to monitor the growth process and control conditions in the greenhouses. They also employ robots for the harvesting of ripe fruits.
