Regen Ag Lab Licenses BeCrop® Technology


Biome Makers and Regen Ag Lab announced today that the companies have entered into a strategic partnership that will expand biological soil health analyses in North America. The agreement brings together Regen Ag Lab, a laboratory focused on regenerative agriculture, and Biome Makers, a global agtech leader providing soil intelligence with BeCrop® technology, the world’s largest database of taxonomic references of microorganisms.

Regen Ag Lab is licensing Biome Makers BeCrop® soil microbiome standard analysis into Regen Ag Lab’s Haney and conventional soil health analytics services. Regen Ag Lab will utilize BeCrop® technology to enhance services with biological insights on soil nutrient cycling and mobilization, disease risk, and biodiversity. Regen Ag Lab is opening a wet lab to conduct the soil analysis at their facilities as well as conduct BeCrop® Trials, enabling ag input testing and performance verification.

“We’ve worked with Regen Ag Lab the over the years to provide biological soil analyses. We are thrilled to license BeCrop® technology and strengthen this relationship,” said Adrian Ferrero, CEO, and co-founder at Biome Makers. “I am confident that this agreement will allow both Biome Makers and Regen Ag Lab to position BeCrop® biological soil analyses as the standard for soil health.”

Customers of Regen Ag Lab can utilize BeCrop® reports to pinpoint specific areas of improvement and make data-driven decisions to optimize farmland health and input costs.

“BeCrop® technology pushes the envelope of biological soil testing, and when coupled with the Haney Test, we see a game-changing opportunity for growers,” said Lance Gunderson, CEO, and founder at Regen Ag Lab. “The pairing of the two tests allows for a deeper understanding of nutrient cycling and uptake potential by the crop through the soil’s biological engine. We are excited about this partnership and the opportunity to offer BeCrop® technology on a wider scale.”
