Augmenta Agriculture Technologies Acquired by CNH Industrial




Another great success story: HETiA’s member Augmenta Agriculture Technologies has been acquired by CNH Industrial proving that the combination of an outstanding technology proposition with scaling business is a winning formula in the global competitive landscape!

Augmenta Agriculture Technologies announced that it has been acquired by CNH Industrial, a world-class equipment and services company. This acquisition will accelerate Augmenta’s growth and offer a unique opportunity to expand its state-of-the-art perception and automation capabilities, broaden its global market reach, and increase its impact on thousands of farms worldwide.

Augmenta was created with a vision of transforming agriculture through automation and autonomy. Having the farmer always at the heart of any product or feature development, Augmenta has enabled farmers worldwide to make the most out of every acre in an environmentally sustainable way.


Strategic partners, united with the same purpose

Since 2018, Augmenta has been providing products and services around crop input management and farm analytics to farmers across many geographies, while also working with CNH Industrial and its subsidiary, Raven, as traditional business partners. This pairing was further enhanced after CNH Industrial became a minority strategic shareholder and joined Augmenta’s board of directors in 2021. After two years of close partnerships at every level, both parties agreed that joining forces under CNH Industrial’s ownership would significantly accelerate their vision and mission.

“We are extremely excited to become part of CNH Industrial and continue building deep technological solutions together that enable a more sustainable future for farms of all sizes, as well as the environment,” noted George Varvarelis, co-founder and CEO of Augmenta. “Our beyond-state-of-the-art ag perception stack combined with CNH Industrial’s high-quality ag equipment and tech stack will give a material advantage to farmers in their daily farming practices, resulting in increased efficiency, precision, and profitability”.

CNH Industrial has acquired 100% of the shares of Augmenta Holding SAS for $110 million. Augmenta will integrate into Raven as part of the company’s precision technology portfolio. Augmenta will retain its employees and strategically invest in its location in Athens, Greece as an innovation hub.
