President's Message

With our experience in model-based development, a technology for controlling automobiles, we founded the agricultural IT venture company "Plant Life Systems Co., Ltd.".
As algorithm designers, we bring new technologies to agriculture to make it more attractive industry.

Our motto is to make agriculture more attractive by offering the latest technology in a form that everyone can use.
We believe that modern agriculture requires revolution rather than innovation. We will do our best to revolutionize agriculture with our technology and make agriculture a sustainable industry.

Thoughts on the logo 

"Agriculture is an industry that everyone wants to be a part of, but why is not it profitable and why is the number of people interested in this industry decreasing?"
PLS started with this question.

Instead of continuing with conventional "farming" that requires experience and skill, we have focused on developing a system that allows people with no prior farming knowledge and businesses with no farming experience to make a profit from the "farming business."

Imagine a world where plants can be harvested at the push of a button, just as you can plug in an electrical outlet to turn on the power. The logo of PLS shows the motif of a computer socket to symbolize this idea.
