This grant is a testament to the need for strong solutions around soil biology in agriculture. The European Union recognizes the importance of BeCrop®, the disruptive soil intelligence technology, and the environmental and socioeconomic impact it has on farmers.

Biome Makers, a global agtech leader in soil health analysis, has been awarded $1.6M from the European Union. This grant is a testament to the need for strong solutions around soil biology in agriculture. The European Union recognizes the importance of BeCrop®, the disruptive soil intelligence technology, and the environmental and socioeconomic impact it has on farmers.


The $1.6M will fast-track the further development of BeCrop AI development and machine learning and accelerate Biome Makers' global mission of recovering soil health. With the world's largest database of taxonomic references and over 415,000 hectares of soil samples analyzed, BeCrop® technology is setting the standard for soil health. BeCrop® decodes soil biology to help farmers improve food production while improving the sustainability of their farmland.

The industry can no longer develop agricultural products or apply inputs without verifying their impact, and BeCrop® is the first step to making this happen. Companies like Syngenta, DISAGRO®, SynTech Research Group, and Regen Ag Labs are all utilizing BeCrop® technology for robust data in analyzing management practices and ag inputs on soil health and biodiversity.

"It is very simple. Would one prescribe medications to oneself without seeing a professional and conducting a blood test? BeCrop® works the same way. It provides all the intelligence you need before and after prescribing and applying products to your farmland." states Alberto Acedo, PhD., CSO and co-founder at Biome Makers.

"This is an exciting time for the agriculture community. For the first time, we communicate with the soil through BeCrop®. The soil can tell us what it needs, what isn't working, and how we can help." adds Adrian Ferrero, CEO and co-founder at Biome Makers.
