Ag Technology


“Sun World seeks to identify and nurture unique agriculture technologies, especially those relevant to permanent specialty crops, in support of Sun World’s licensees farming pursuits around the world” 

In addition to using the latest breeding technologies to improve the flavor, availability and sustainability of our premium varieties, we closely follow emerging technologies that have the potential to one day transform agriculture.

Sun World has identified ag tech — ag tech refers to software, hardware and bio-based solutions to mitigate farming’s pain points — as an important strategic focus in the years ahead.

The Company is carefully studying early-stage tech to determine which hold the greatest promise.  These include process automation, robotics, AI, integrated software solutions for crop management.

While Sun World’s focus will remain on variety development and licensing, ag tech is a logical extension of our innovation posture and the company is proceeding with optimism and prudence.


Sun World has partnered with THRIVE, an accelerator that provides us and our licensees with access to emerging start-ups. THRIVE’s goal is to solve problems in the ag tech space through connecting promising start-ups with progressive agriculture businesses and investors.
