Our story

Founder Ashwin Madgavkar launched Ceres Imaging as a graduate student in 2014, inspired by emerging technology in spectral imagery and galvanized by the plight of California growers navigating a severe drought.

Today, Ceres Imaging is a venture-backed company delivering precision agriculture solutions that help growers detect acute issues, track and measure progress, and improve farm performance. From our headquarters in Oakland, California, we serve growers in Australia, South America, and the United States.
