Mothive is a Precision Agriculture company founded in March 2015 that helps high-value fruit and veg growers optimise production yield and increase the product value when sold to the supply chain.

We are currently operating in Europe and with headquarters in London, UK. Mothive is partnering with research institutes in the UK to bring to market the next generation of agricultural technologies.



Mothive believes innovative technologies should be an instrument to evolution, as well a tool to disrupt and create more value and knowledge to the public and private sectors. Our vision is to create a reputed company that develops novel sensing technologies to enable the creation of knowledge through uncharted data sources with the fundamental goal of ensuring world's food and safety.

Mothive is at the forefront of a new era of agriculture, whereby farmers and growers rely on automation and enhanced understanding of food and plant production to optimise processes and generate superior outputs.

In early 2017, Mothive was awarded with an R&D contract by the Portuguese Military and, as a result, we also aim to be in the future a key provider of technology to keep soldiers and societies more secure.
