About Blue River
Blue River Technology serves the agricultural industry by designing and building advanced farm machines which utilize computer vision and machine learning, allowing farmers to understand and manage every plant. This in turn improves farmer profitability, protects the environment by reducing pesticide use, and captures valuable plant-by-plant data.
A pioneer in the agricultural robotics space, Blue River developed the See & Spray intelligent sprayer, which applies pesticide only where needed, reducing pesticide spray volumes by up to 90%. John Deere & Company, with over 180 years of experience in designing, manufacturing, and distributing innovative products to farmers, acquired Blue River Technology in the fall of 2017 as an independently-run subsidiary. Under John Deere, Blue River has expanded rapidly and together both companies are actively seeking to apply advanced computer vision, machine learning, and robotics technologies to other areas in agriculture beyond spraying.
Blue River is based in Sunnyvale, CA and has over 70 team members with diverse experience including autonomous vehicles, computer vision, machine learning, systems software, and precision agriculture. The company's environment is fast paced and highly collaborative, and employees are excited about using their talents to help food production and the environment.
