Honolulu-based Smart Yields selected The Hague as the location for its European operations.

The agriculture technology company is hosting its first-ever European stakeholder event in The Hague on Wednesday. The company is also part of West Holland’s growing agro-technology and social-impact movement, supported by InnovationQuarter and The Hague Business Agency.

The announcement follows Smart Yield’s recent expansion into Asia through Hong Kong’s Cyberport Incubation Programme, a move the startup said would "springboard” its expansion into undeserved regions in Asia.

The company said the expansion lays the groundwork for its development of regional Centers of Excellence to share and refine best practices across the agricultural sector – from agronomy to sustainability to workforce development.

Smart Yields said it also plans to host an international farmers meeting in the Netherlands next year.

“The Netherlands is changing the way small- and medium-size farmers monitor and cultivate their crops, and we want to help bring those innovations to the world, aligning their farming frameworks with other global best practices,” Vincent Kimura, CEO of Smart Yields, said in a statement.

 

Smart Yields partnered with Salt Farm Texel, an “open-air lab” researching crops that are resistant to high-salinity growing conditions.

The company said it is also launching a partnership with Sensoterra, an Amsterdam-based leader in low-cost, soil moisture monitoring hardware.

Smart Yields will pair its data platform and mobile interface with Sensoterra’s wireless hardware.
