Laconik: simple and easy on-farm trials: Investment and partnership opportunity

Opportunity for

  • Angel, venture capital and corporate investors seeking equity in scalable, on-farm trialling technology
  • Agricultural seed, chemical and fertiliser companies seeking technology to enable field scale  testing of new products
  • Grower groups, universities and agronomists looking to trial a technology for conducting scientific, farm scale trials. 

Opportunity description

Industry challenge:

Traditionally small plot trials have been used to collect crop safety and efficacy data for new products coming to market. They are essential in the early stages of product development, however, fail to embrace all ‘real-world’ variables new products face once commercially released.

Laconik’s simple and easy to use on-farm trials allow small plots to be placed over entire fields. We embrace spatial variability rather than ignore it. Feedback from customers indicates that growers take more confidence from data gathered through large scale commercial trials over the yield trends generated from small plot trials.

Current opportunity:

Laconik are seeking investment from angel, venture and corporate investors for a Series A $2-3 million capital raise. The funds will be used to capture the Australian market and add new features to our software.

Laconik currently works with Australian Research and Development Corporations (RDCs), crop protection companies and growers across Australia to test new products in paddock scale trials. The technology is being used to undertake agronomy, farming systems, crop nutrition and crop protection trials.

If you are looking to test new products in 2023, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Opportunity background

Laconik has developed a simple and easy to use software solution that enables on-farm trials to be easily created, monitored and results analysed at the end of the season. We use the hardware and software which comes standard in every modern farm machine.

Other applications

Laconik is an enabling technology, we started in crop nutrition and are now working in crop protection, agronomy and farming systems. New opportunities to use our technology lie in conducting research for insects, rhizoctonia and biologicals.
