Biome Makers, a global SoilTech leader, announces updates to the most advanced biological soil analysis: BeCrop®. Growers used to have to wait until after the growing season to determine the success of their crops, but now BeCrop® provides an overview of the current soil performance, adding a biological dimension to the world of soil testing.

BeCrop® is the first digital soiltech platform delivering a functional crop specific analysis of the soil microbiome based on its genetic information. The technology digitizes the microbial biology of the soil and offers user-friendly data-fueled insights on the farm’s underground bioactivity.

BeCrop® translates complex ag data about the microbiome into simplified reports that provide comprehensive, actionable results, optimizing inputs and farm operations. This groundbreaking technology is the standard for soil testing and is paving the way for soil health, sustainable farming, and ecosystem restoration across the world.

Biome Makers offers the most cutting-edge technology and continues to invest in R&D to bring the best solutions to the market. The BeCrop® 2.0 update includes enhancements in the bioinformatics algorithm, which facilitate a deeper understanding of the soil microbiome networks. The outputs are reflected in the final reports with Soil Quality Index, new bacteria and fungi ratios, and Ectomicorryza and Arbuscular ratios which hold a powerful link to carbon sequestration. BeCrop® reports are accessible using any device through the property application: BeCrop® Portal App where consumers can locate all sample information e.g., Farm Maps, soil Microbiome Explorer Tools, and the detailed reports. BeCrop® provides a meaningful explanation of soil function, health, and biodiversity in agriculture and indicates a baseline of the health of a field by crop and soil type.

With revolutionary biological soil testing like BeCrop®, customers can now understand the microbial communities underground and improve the overall development of their land. Biome Makers is committed to keep improving BeCrop® enabling tool to support soil health management and sustainable farming practices, mitigating climate change, and ensuring quality soil and quality food for generations to come.
