The Company

Pioneer of smart farming

itk, Intelligence Technology Knowledge, was created in 2003 in Montpellier, to develop Decision Support Tools (OAD) for agriculture. Its mission is to enable farmers to optimize the yield and quality of their crops, and reduce risks on their farm, while preserving the environment through better management of inputs (irrigation, fertilizer, phytosanitary products). itk has always been closely linked to research. Its founder, Eric Jallas, was CIRAD Research Director, and the company remains closely linked to the ecosystem of Montpellier’s agronomic research center, one of the world’s largest for crop production.

Our Skills

Agronomic modeling

It allows predicting crop yields and their input needs based on climate, soil and farming techniques used by farmers. In this area, itk stands out for its mastery of so-called ” mechanistic” models (derived from agronomic research). These models simulate all the physiological mechanisms of culture, unlike statistical models derived from Big Data developed by the majority of other companies in the sector.

Artificial intelligence

to interpret the results of the model and all the strategic data of the operation, and to deduce the best decisions.

Various computer skills

necessary for the development of the Web platforms that deliver the services: supercomputing, portability (consultation on PC, tablet or smartphone, connected or disconnected mode, ergonomics), for an optimal user experience.

Our leitmotiv is agility in adapting technological advances to serve the agricultural world.

Our talents

Only the value of the employees of itk conditions its performance and growth. itk attaches particular care in the recruitment and development of those who are involved.
