About the Company
Based in Vancouver, Lyne Systems is an Agritech company that aims to deliver greater systems efficiencies by using technology to optimize food production, processing, and packaging lines all while delivering higher yield with less labour. PikAssist is the companies pilot project which is a mushroom harvesting device to help commercial mushroom farmers combat labor shortages and cut down on production costs. PikAssist benefits farmers by helping increase the number of crops picked and the device requires no changes to existing farm operations.
How will PikAssist use the Business Development Grant?
“The support our team has received from [Ramp-Up] has contributed to the build of our newly designed PikAssist pilot device. This iteration of our device has been developed through many rounds of on-farm testing, and consultation with mushroom farmers and experts across North America and Europe. The build of this new pilot device will allow for final testing on our partner farms to prove the efficacy of our device, and allow us to begin providing devices to mushroom farms across BC and Canada. These PikAssists, once installed, will allow mushroom farms to increase their growing capacity, reduce their harvesting labour requirement, and gather valuable harvest room data.”
