Biome Makers offer support and resources for farmers
The health of our planet’s soil is a foundational unit for the success of farmers and our resulting food supply. Plants grown in microbe-rich soil are more disease resistant and prosperous. Biome Makers invested in the technology to provide farmers information about how they can improve the quality of their soil in order to improve their harvests.

Biome Makers released an updated website with a toolbox of resources for members of the public or the agricultural community. The articles, webinars and case studies allow growers, retailers and manufacturers to develop a deeper understanding of soil biology and how it affects crop development.
The team at Biome Makers come from a diverse background in AgTech, presenting themselves as thought leaders in the industry.
“We wanted to cultivate a space that welcomes farmers, agronomists, retailers and ag-manufacturers to develop a deeper understanding of soil biology,” stated Adrian Ferrero, cofounder and CEO at Biome Makers. “Our ultimate goal is to share our mission to optimize farming practices and improve soil health and sustainability around the globe.”
Biome Maker’s brainchild is its BeCrop technology, a scientific diagnostic system that comprehensively evaluates soil samples and provides feedback on improvements to regenerate the soil to optimal health. It works in conjunction with the farmers, who collect samples and send them into one of Biome Makers labs, located around the world. Each sample contains just four to 12 spoonfuls of soil. Samples from multiple parcels of land are collected in order to compare the differences across the land. Once at the lab, scientists run the soil through a series of DNA extraction and sequencing processes to measure health data via microbes.
