Biological soil analysis BeCrop updated by Biome Makers

Biome Makers Inc. announced Jan. 27 updates to its 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 touted as 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 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.
