Results Libanon Agrytech hackathon

Berytech organized the Agrytech Hackathon on the weekend of April 20th in Beirut, Lebanon. FarmHackNL acted as ‘expert partner’ for this event, together with our partner Source Institute. Our role was to help in design and preparation, and provide facilitation, training and mentoring during the hackathon. While Source institute excells in helping participants to mutually learn and collaborate, FarmHackNL was able to provide help with the design, data gathering, and link to agriculture.

The three winning teams selected out of the 26 final solutions pitched during the event received direct access to the Agrytech Accelerator, with access to up to US$100K in support and grants.
The 1st place winner was IO TREE team, developing a machine connected to a wireless sensor network that monitors the presence of the red fruit fly and inform the farmer when it’s the best time to spray.

The 2nd place winners were two: Agry Mac team, developing an application that detects and/or predicts illness in trees, soil and plant; and Zaatine team, who created a machine that will separate Zaatar leaves from the stem.

The other 7 finalists, who were also judged on their idea’s validation, innovation, prototype, impact and sustainability, were: Agribridge – A platform linking the agri- food industry sectors in Lebanon, EIS – an engineering solution for food industries using image processing, Farmland – an online agricultural magazine showcasing lands and tools for rent or sale, ‪Help me plant – a mobile platform providing users with agriculture knowledge with 4 easy inputs to help choose, buy, and take care of their plants,‪ Slimy – a technology-based solution to extract snail slime using automated electrical tactile stimulation, AgriAi – an innovative multi-platform collecting data on crops, soil, nutrients and water to help the farmer in his decision making, and Stroopwafel – a device that monitors food shipments throughout the whole supply chain so that all the quality regulations are respected.
