About Pycno


Pycno is a startup that aims to provide growers with tools that enable data-driven decisions.



Pycno started in the UK in 2014 as an idea, to develop innovative products for agricultural purposes. Throughout our interactions with growers, farm managers and agronomists, it was clear that a quick and easy solution to get data off of the field, visualize them, and process them, was crucial.

After countless prototypes, in mid-2015, we started developing a new all-in-one sensor. This sensor would incorporate all the pieces that are usually sold as separate parts, the sensing elements (such as a soil sensor), the RTU and SIM, and the receiving software.

Because we started from scratch, we saw a lot of the issues that plagued the industry such as dated 2G and CDMA modems, no APIs, and convoluted RTU firmware versions that were incompatible to various sensors.

For a new farmer, that wants to use sensors in their growing cycle, the state of the ecosystem is very intimidating. A typical grower has to gather the potential sensors types, RTUs, and software he/she wants to use, and contact each vendor to ask for compatibility. Pycno's sensors allow friction-less installation and data collection, together with a powerful software, and an API and export tools, because you own your data!

Fast forward to today and we are very excited to offer 3 different lengths of sensors (2G and 4G), LoRa capabilities and a weather station (coming soon).
We are currently in more than 26 countries and looking for partners to join us on our mission to modernize data collection in the field.
