Biography

Adam Forbes founded BumperCrop in 2018 to help covered crop growers get the most from their plants by making precision agriculture technologies affordable and easy to use. He has over 12 years of experience in product development, software and user experience. Adam worked at technology companies including Dell, Honeywell and high growth startups. He holds a Master’s Degree from Stanford University, a BSc (Hons) from Otago University and is a Fulbright Scholar.
