"Microbial-based solutions, which are formulated from microbes, offer multiple benefits to crops. [...] Healthy soils are critical for global food production and provide a range of environmental services."
Allafrica talks about us and microbes in the agri-food sector in this interesting article: "Africa: Why Microbes Are Key to Solving Africa's Food Security Crisis".
Microbes (fungi, bacteria) are microscopic microorganisms that are continually interacting with the soil and plants. That is why microbial solutions that are formulated from microbes offer many benefits to crops and allow ecosystem balance. In addition, they allow the agro-food industry to achieve protection against pests, drought and other extreme weather-related situations.
Microbial solutions for agriculture are essencial in agri-food in the developed world. (As Allafrica informs, the market for these products is valued at $2.3 billion globally). Unfortunately, agriculture in Africa does not have the technological and innovative resources that are now in operation in developed countries.
The WineSeq technology, developed by Biome Makers, can be easily implemented in any country and, through simple soil sampling, detects the entire microbial community and offers recommendations on how to improve the quality and performance of the vineyards.
Thanks to this 100% innovative technology, Biome Makers is in first position as an innovative startup at the US AgFunder Awards.
