Augmenta has been delivering innovations since our founding as a tech startup in 2016. Today, we’re part of Raven, a CNH Industrial brand. Our teams work together to help farmers serve the world by delivering innovative solutions to farmers across the globe. Augmenta's innovative Sense & Act capabilities — coupled with Raven’s industry-leading technologies — are paving the way for profitable sustainability.
In early 2023, Augmenta was made up of over 40 individuals who worked together to advance precision ag solutions. Since joining Raven in March 2023, we are now part of a team of over 300 engineers from a variety of backgrounds and specializations who are united by a passion to help farmers serve the world.
Our team members work together as one team to deliver cutting-edge technology to our customers.
Co-founders Dimitri (Jim) Evangelopoulos and George Varvarelis sought to discover simplified solutions that would allow farmers to do more with less. Together, they used their academic training in electronics and farming backgrounds to find a solution that would drive results for farmers. They developed the Augmenta System: the world's first real-time camera and artificial intelligence (AI)-based variable rate application (VRA) hardware platform. Retrofitted to pre-owned farming equipment and fully supported by a full range of operational analytics, reports, fleet management tools, and more via the Augmenta Web Portal, it offers farmers unparalleled efficiency and simplicity.
The co-founders established Augmenta Technologies in 2016 and set out to show the world’s farmers that optimization is sustainably possible for operations of all sizes, and farmers — no matter what size their operation — can reap financial rewards. As a startup, Augmenta raised more than $11M in venture capital funding to help bring sustainable precision automation to farmers. In 2023, Augmenta was acquired by CNH Industrial and joined the Raven team.
Today, Augmenta team members work alongside the Raven team to develop Sense & Act solutions that will help farmers serve the world. The Augmenta field analyzer has helped make farmers aware that there is a simpler, more efficient way to achieve their goals. Now commercially available in Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), North and South America, and Australia, the field analyzer is delivering results to farmers worldwide.
Together with the innovative tech solutions developed by the Raven team, our technology will reach more farmers around the globe and advance their precision agriculture solutions.
Augmenta’s founding mission was to 'augment' the capacity of arable land to help feed a growing world sustainably. Through the optimization of inputs made possible by our exclusive technology, we can reduce both the chemical load in soils and input costs while improving the quality of produce and profitability.
Augmenta and Raven team members are working together closely to develop innovative Sense & Act solutions that further augment the land and will take farmers forward on their Path to Autonomy.
Innovations from Augmenta’s founding team continue to advance farming solutions. The Augmenta field analyzer can be used on all the major crop types, and we continue to develop its technology. It is a multi-functional device capable of many different spreader/sprayer VRA services such as N-VRA, Multi N-VRA, Harvest Aid/Defoliant, and Plant Growth Regulator (PGR). The future will see more added, as our team continues to move forward with Green on Brown (GoB) selective pesticide spraying.
Augmenta's global network of dealers is growing rapidly, and we are actively expanding into new geographies and markets. Our technology continues to bring value to farmers, and that value will be shared across the globe as we advance augmented farming. As part of the CNH Industrial family of brands, Augmenta will continue to deliver precision ag solutions that advance the noble work of agriculture workers.
