By providing high-quality information to farmers, agronomists, and ag retailers about the biological components of their soil, we help them make better management decisions. We start by digitizing the biological data and decoding it into easy-to-understand information. We then combine the biology with traditional soil chemistry, physical properties, and carbon, providing a complete picture of the soil environment, including the microorganisms and pathogens present.
Metagenomics is at the heart of our soil analysis—sequencing all the DNA in a soil sample to identify microbes and not just a small fingerprint gene. Traditionally, metagenomic sequencing has been cost-prohibitive for practical applications. Our breakthrough techniques dramatically reduce the sequencing costs and the time it takes to deliver them. The result is a process that’s faster, more affordable and more complete than ever before.
