Why We Exist
To Make Meaningful Change, We Must
Improve Irrigation Efficiency
Climate change and population growth are forcing governments and growers to adopt new water management technology. Currently, the systems that growers have for managing and tracking irrigation are broken and wasteful. Lumo’s technology will not only help them in terms of productivity and profitability, but it will also support them as stewards of the planet.
Affected by water
The amount of freshwater available per person has plunged by a fifth over two decades.
Decline in freshwater species since 1970
This is compared to a 68% decline across all species.
Of global wetlands have been lost since 1970
We are losing wetlands three times faster than natural forests.
Lumo was founded by a small group of tech entrepreneurs, each wanting to step up to do our part helping solve the impact climate change has on our water supply.
We know that we’re facing a water shortage. But we have to move from knowing to doing.
To solve the problem of freshwater availability, we believe we must invent more efficient ways to irrigate so we can protect the world’s most precious resource – water.
