TartanSense, an AI-powered robotics solutions provider empowering small farm holders, has raised $5 million in its Series A round led by FMC Ventures and Omnivore with participation from its existing backer Blume Ventures.

With this round, the total funds raised by TartanSense stands at $7 million. Earlier in March 2019, it had raised $2 million in its seed round led by Blume Ventures, BEENEXT and Omnivore.
