Where It All Started

In 2019, Daniel Hijazi, Tara McElligott, Sean Smith and Jose Lopez, began research that focussed on the resistance farm animals have to medication. During the course of their research, they realised how underserviced the agricultural industry is by technological advancements and the benefits that new tech could provide to an industry that’s increasingly under pressure. 

After much research, theorising, and problem solving, the four entrepreneurs decided to go all-in on their idea. They began the ideation process for the Micron Kit with a passion and ambition to create change, with no funding behind them. They wanted to make a difference and create a solution that benefits everyone. Thus the Irish start-up company Micron Agritech was founded.

From Concept to Creation

At Micron Agritech, our number one goal is to make an impact within the Agriculture industry. To us, this means creating a device and app that makes a difference.

Our initial idea was to help with the resistance to medication in farm animals. Through development, we discovered that we could finesse it down even more and pinpoint precisely what farm animal is carrying the parasite and how to treat it without blanket dosing. This took a certain amount of innovation, ingenuity, creativity, and collaboration between us, which are some of our fundamental values.
