Biome Makers Inc., a global soil technology leader, announces updates to BeCrop, the most advanced biological soil analysis on the market. 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 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 is a proprietary technology developed by Biome Makers that integrates genomics, AI and ag data to identify the microbial biomarkers that provide a meaningful explanation of soil function in agriculture. 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 the most 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. BeCrop reports are accessible using any device through the property application BeCrop Portal App, where users can locate all sample information including farm maps, soil microbiome explorer tools, and the detailed reports. BeCrop provides a meaningful explanation of soil function, health and biodiversity in agriculture, and indicates a baseline of the health of a field by crop and soil type. 

With revolutionary biological soil testing like BeCrop, customers can now understand the microbial communities underground and improve the overall development of their land.
