Biome Makers Releases Impact Report for Global Soil Restoration
Biome Makers, AgTech leader in microbial soil analysis, releases their 2021Impact Report measuring its progress toward soil health and sharing its goals for the next 5 years. Biome Makers’ impact focus is on 3 pillars: a nature-positive food production system, fair socioeconomic conditions for farmers, and empowering the ecosystem.
The current food system faces deep environmental and socio-economic issues. Therefore, it is crucial to enable sustainable farming and obtain insights into soil health. To achieve this, Biome Makers’ BeCrop® technology provides a critical tool to the following key players:
Farmers are empowered to measure and make informed decisions on soil health, adopt sustainable practices, increase yield, and reduce costs.
Retailers and agriculture input manufacturers can test and improve the impact of their products on soil health
Food processing companies are enabled change throughout the value chain by selecting proven nature-positive food ingredients.
In this report, Biome Makers highlights its impact so far, which includes supporting 63,000 hectares of R&D projects, reducing 20% in agrochemical fertilizers, and increasing carbon sequestration in agriculture by 15%. Additionally, over 8000 farmers from 40+ countries across 122 different crop types have benefited from improved socio-economic conditions. The Impact Report also aligns company goals with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which further raises awareness to improve soil health, carbon sequestration, and environmental sustainability worldwide.
