The Yield Lab was founded in September 2014 to sustainably increase the global food supply and reduce inputs to agricultural production and distribution. The Yield Lab stemmed from the need for tailored resources to enable agriculture technology entrepreneurship. Today, the Yield Lab continues to accelerate innovative companies that are working to revolutionize agrifood systems to more sustainably provide for the world.
The Yield Lab invests in critical areas, including:
- Crop Production/Protection
- Animal Health, Nutrition and Wellness
- CleanTech and Sustainables
- Supply Chain/Logistics
- Food Ingredients
- Precision Agriculture, Data and Information Technology
The Yield Lab is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, and currently operates 2 accelerator programs – The Yield Lab St. Louis and the Yield Lab Europe.
