Aquapurna and CROPT: Achieving Growth Through Collaboration

Aquapurna GmbH is a land-based shrimp farming startup, that partnered with K+S through RootCamp to develop a salt premix called Gambasal for shrimp production. Aquapurna benefited from technical support and a customized product solution from K+S, while K+S gained insights into shrimp farming and customer demand. The collaboration resulted in a cost-efficient premix for Aquapurna and enhanced technical knowledge for K+S, showcasing RootCamp’s commitment to startup growth.

CROPT, a satellite-driven precision agriculture startup, partnered with K+S through RootCamp to develop a fertiliser recommendation system. Leveraging agronomic expertise and precision agriculture technology, the project aimed to achieve over 80% accuracy in yield prediction. Collaborating with EzyAgric in Uganda, data were collected to develop models and generate fertiliser recommendations. The project resulted in a platform for farmers, offering test accounts for evaluation and improvement. This collaboration showcased RootCamp’s commitment to startup growth, empowering farmers with data-driven insights and promoting sustainable agricultural practices.
