Together for the one cause!

Team and Partner

We at Rukola Soft are a team of developers and gardeners who have set themselves the goal of developing a program that simplifies operations on vegetable farms and provides an overview of the entire operation. We want to make both planning and daily farm workmore efficient and practical with our horticulture software. We implement this in a collaborative way of working at eye level. We are at your disposal for this.

Our cooperation partners

Wirgarten System

With the WirGarten system, individuals are supported in founding, building and running local WirGarten cooperatives. The WirGarten concept is organized according to the principles of community supported agriculture (CSA). The team has created an extensive manual (German only) for founding such operations, including financial planning, and has made it available to everyone free of charge.

German Network of CSAs

The network is an association of people with an agricultural background and consumers who advocate the spread of community supported agriculture. The network sees itself equally as a movement, grassroots organization and trade association.

Permarobotics digitizes the entire value chain in regenerative agriculture. With technologies from the  cloud-linked soil moisture sensor, the  cloud-linked harvest recording scales  to the Permabot field robot, we offer the right digital solution for every expansion stage of the farm in order to make working life easier and to support the farmers in achieving their ultimate goal ofhealing the soil and stabilizing the climate.
