ENHANCING MICROBES FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
CroBio: Empowering sustainable agriculture through enhanced microbes.
Our goal is to create an environmentally sustainable solution to alleviate global agricultural drought and help reverse the effects of climate change, through carbon sequestration.
The answer to carbon redirection lies in the very ground we walk upon - soil.
Plants, through photosynthesis, convert carbon dioxide from the air into carbohydrates. Some of these carbohydrates are transported to the roots, feeding soil microbes. These microbes utilise the carbon to build healthy soil. By harnessing this process, we can enhance carbon storage in the soil and promote it's numerous benefits. Our technology leverages a crop root-associated bacterium and boosts its capabilities to express a carbon-rich biomaterial, resulting in enhanced soil carbon capture and water retention.
