AgTech Worldwide was founded by serial entrepreneur Brian Kinard with the fundamental focus of improving large agriculture for the farmer, the environment and human health. Born and raised in a cotton town, Brian is passionate about making agriculture once again independent from government subsidies while at the same time reducing agriculture's impact on the environment.
We seek to reduce worldwide pesticide use by up to 90%! In the US every year, over 500 million pounds of pesticides are used at a cost of about $15 billion. Even a 50% reduction provides a $7.5 billion savings per year.
Sharing these reduced costs with the farmers means that everyone wins:
Environment and Human Health
AgTech Worldwide was formed in 2014 with the singular purpose of improving agriculture. Farmers will benefit from lower input costs. People and the environment will benefit from reduced pesticide use.
