Who we are
The past is proof. The minds behind POMETA have led horticulture research, engineered new weather sensors, developed advanced agtech, and helped growers all over the world perfect their operations.
We’ve seen it all and partnered with the best.
Dave Brown, PhD
Dave served as a faculty member for 20 years at Montana State University and Washington State University, where he pursued research on soil sensors, spacial data science, and digital agriculture.
At both universities, he served in many leadership roles for major research projects, and academic programs.
Most recently, he was director of the WSU AgWeatherNet program, where he hired and supervised the team of meteorologists who pursued research and extension activities to evaluate and improve the quality of weather data used for agricultural decisions.
A graduate of the Wharton School, Scott developed his father’s family business into ADDIUM (formerly METER Group), a market-leading scientific instrument company that operates on a global scale.
With Scott at the helm, METER Group engineered and launched AROYA, the world’s fastest-growing cannabis production platform, to help growers maximize quality and profitability.
Most recently, Scott supported the launch of POMETA to equip orchardists with unprecedented crop insight – and help them triumph in the fickle ag industry.
Patrick has long been passionate about applying AI and computer vision to tough agtech challenges. As Director of Computer Vision, Patrick brings ADDIUM a wealth of expertise gained in his prior roles as founder and CEO of Farm Vision Technologies, a startup that developed a crop load estimation system for fruit crops.
He earned a PhD in Computer Science and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where he worked on various research projects related to outdoor robotic systems.
Matt is a master of applying data and technology to help growers optimize their production and profitability. He uses AI, data science and other advanced tools to create custom site-specific weather forecasts and automated frost response techniques for orchards and other specialty crops.
He has conducted research with the US NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) and the University of Colorado Boulder, from which he received a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology.
