FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (May 25, 2022) North Vancouver, BC, Canada – In order to multiply their success, growers must have complete visibility and control of their crops. The Ecoation forecasting platform provides world-first actionable insights into the growing operation. These insights unburden growers and allow them to focus on the plants, without additional operational stress. Dr. Adrian Fuxman, who is responsible for developing and leading the data science team and methodologies at Ecoation, has recently been promoted to Director of Data Science and Innovation at the company.
Adrian has a PhD. in Process Control and Engineering from the University of Alberta, a MSc in Chemical Engineering from Queen’s University and BSc in Chemical Engineering from Universidad Nacional del Sur in Buenos Aires, as well as holding his P. Eng with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.
Adrian has been working at Ecoation for nearly three years, and in that time he has helped to develop and implement many of the Ecoation platform’s important features such as fruit counting, yield assessments and forecasts, as well as 3D climate maps and IPM forecasting.

I want to make their lives easier.”
