    EarthSense Edwin Moore Family Agriculture Innovation Prize

    EarthSense Recieves 2018 Edwin Moore Family Agriculture Innovation Prize 

    Prize honors University of Illinois entrepreneurs pioneering new agricultural technologies 

    Champaign, IL — EarthSense, a company that develops ultracompact autonomous robots for crop breeders, agronomists, and growers, is the recipient of the second Edwin Moore Family Agriculture Innovation Prize. The award, generously funded by University of Illinois alumni and their families, rewards University of Illinois entrepreneurs focusing on agricultural innovations.

    Family members Penny DeYoung and Ed Moore presented the award to EarthSense during the Agriculture Technology Innovation Summit on Feb. 28 in Champaign. 

    EarthSense provides herbicide-free superweed eradication using TerraSentia, an ultracompact autonomous robot. TerraSentia also delivers under-canopy plant health and trait information. In 2018, more than 25 TerraSentia robots are in paid trials.

    The team who developed the TerraSentia's robotics and machine-vision technology includes CEO Chinmay Soman and CTO Girish Chowdhary, an assistant professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The company occupies a lab at EnterpriseWorks, the technology incubator in the Research Park.

    The Edwin Moore Agriculture Innovation Fund was established in 2016 with a generous gift to EnterpriseWorks, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s technology incubator. Its goal is to encourage startup companies engaged in development of new innovative technologies that may lead to increased productivity and/or efficiency in farming, or to create new agricultural opportunities, including new processes, new crops, and new food production systems. 

    In addition to the prize given at the AgTech Innovation Summit, a second Edwin Moore Agriculture Innovation Fund award is at stake as part of the Cozad New Venture Competition, the university’s signature competition for student startups. It will be awarded in April.


    The award honors the legacy of Edwin E. Moore (1924), who graduated from the University of Illinois College of Agriculture and began farming in Will County. Throughout his agricultural career, he and wife, Iva, used innovative farming practices for both crop production and livestock management. Two of their four children became farmers, Edwin and Thomas (1953, College of Agriculture), and continued use of innovative farm practices. Subsequent generations of Edwin Moore's family have continued to pursue farming and ag related careers capturing the same innovative spirit.

    St. Mary's Viaduct

    Read the full story on the News-Gazette.

    Ten years ago, in 2008, The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission recommended that a sidewalk be added to the St. Mary's Road Viaduct, which would cost significantly less than building a whole new tunnel under the viaduct for pedestrians and bikers. 

    However, there is still no safe passage under the viaduct now ten years later--and the Research Park, the University, and the City of Champaign don't believe this proposal can be put on the back burner any longer. 

    In the last ten years, the Research Park has grown exponentionally, doubling in size and the amount of employees, growing from only 949 employees and 8 buildings to over 2,000 employees and 17 buildings. And those employees would love to walk under the viaduct to Neil Street restuarants if it were a safe option. 

    Research Park Director, Laura Frerichs stated, "We get regular complaints that people would probably love to be able to just walk across the street and take advantage of that, but you've got a viaduct situation that is pedestrian-precarious, it's hazardous."

    Recently, Champaign's Planning and Public Works Department met with UI officials, including Frerichs, and decided to conduct a study and search for funding after there was a consensus on safety concerns at the viaduct. 

    While these are just the beginning stages of the project, and it is still likely a far way off, it is a good first step to a safe passage to Neil Street for University and Research Park employees.
