Company Developing AI to Accelerate Global Soil Restoration
Biome Makers, a global ag tech leader in soil health analysis, recently received a $1.6 million grant from the European Union, to help answer the need for strong solutions around soil biology in agriculture. The EU recognizes the importance of BeCrop, the company’s soil intelligence technology, and the environmental and socioeconomic impact it has on farmers. The grant will help fast-track the development of BeCrop AI and machine learning. That will help accelerate Biome Makers’ global mission of recovering soil health.
The AI currently has the world’s largest database of taxonomic references and has analyzed more than 415,000 hectares of soil. BeCrop technology decodes soil biology to help farmers improve food production while improving the sustainability of their farmland. The industry will no longer have to develop agricultural products or apply inputs without verifying their impact. BeCrop is the first step to making that happen. Companies like Syngenta already utilize the AI.
