Continuum Ag

THE PROBLEM Quantifiable soil health data and standards are lacking. This gap creates uncertainty in how to achieve soil improvements and perpetuates lack of upside for growers.  If standardized and benchmarked, soil health can provide a foundation for farm productivity, land value, crop premiums, and sustainable sourcing. THE SOLUTION Continuum Ag’s software imports soil data from many different sources and converts to universal format so that it can then benchmark metrics such as nutrients, organic matter, and CO2 for different geographies, soil types, and cropping systems.  Not only does this capability quantify soil health, it identifies ...

Intrinsyx Bio

At Intrinsyx Bio, we are commercializing 3 decades of the leading academic research in the plant microbiome. Our endophytic microbes cause crop plants, grasses, ornamental plants, and trees to fix Nitrogen (N2) directly from the atmosphere into ammonia which helps improve nutrient use efficiency, supplement synthetic fertilizer requirements, and increase chlorophyll.  These microbes live in leaves, stems, roots and don't require a nodule.  Our endophyte microbes also mobilize insoluble phosphorus (P2) from soil into roots, as well as increased drought and salt tolerances.
