May 31, 2023UPL, Biome Makers partner to highlight biosolutions’ effects
Sustainable agriculture solutions company UPL is partnering with ag-tech company Biome Makers, to deepen understanding of the positive effect of UPL’s natural biosolution inputs on soil health.
UPL will use Biome Makers’ BeCrop Test technology in a series of global trials across multiple locations and cropping systems to gain further insights into its inputs’ modes of action. The data received from these trials will guide future product development and allow growers to make more informed decisions about their farming practices.
“We are thrilled to partner with Biome Makers to conduct these trials as part of our OpenAg commitment to collaboration,” Drew Wolter, technical development manager for UPL, said in a news release. “Healthy soil is vital to the future of sustainable agriculture, garnering further insights into how our natural biosolution inputs can improve soil health will ensure we continue to empower farmers to grow more food, more sustainably.”
Biome Makers’ mission is to improve soil health and provide companies tools to equip farmers with the right solutions, Adrián Ferrero, Biome Makers’ CEO, said in the release.
“Input companies around the globe are using BeCrop Technology to understand the impact of their products on the soil microbiome,” Ferrero said in the release. “Partnering with UPL aligns with our mission, and we are excited to work together to advance the understanding of soil functionality.”
