JALA is transforming the shrimp industry by offering a vastly improved management system. JALA was founded by shrimp farmers that believe technologies will scale up shrimp production in a sustainable way. Currently, the shrimp industry has several issues. It is hard to predict production due to unpredictable yields and failures to address poor farming practices. It is hard to trace the shrimp post production and the long supply chain of logistics ultimately creates a lower end product. Furthermore, there is not enough data to create risk assessments and therefore farmers have a hard time getting financing. With data-driven farming in mind, JALA’s goal is to get farmers to make decisions based on actual data. JALA offers one stop digital solution for farmers, leveraging their farming practices to ensure profitability and sustainability. They combine IoT water monitoring and data-analytics systems to achieve precision farming which has thus far increased shrimp yield by 26%.
