Biome Makers and Biospheres Collaborate to Offer Biological Soil Health Analyses in France

Biome Makers Inc. has partnered with Biospheres to integrate Biome Makers’ BeCrop technology into the Microspheres lab in France.

“Biome Makers continues to identify labs that share our mission towards global soil health restoration,” said Adrian Ferrero, co-founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with Biospheres and license our BeCrop technology to France and empower stakeholders to learn more about the benefits of understanding soil biology.”

Biome Makers’ analysis, integrated into a larger panel of analysis Microspheres Lab used on soil, allows them to improve their understanding of the microbiological aspect of soils and thus refine their diagnoses and the resulting advice for farmers and agricultural companies.

Thanks to Biome Makers BeCrop¬® technology, Microspheres Lab also offers their client services for the evaluation of the effect of agricultural inputs, mainly biocontrol products or biostimulants, or agricultural practices on soil microbiology and its possible functions. Biospheres’ expertise in the implementation of trials under farming conditions, as well as what the Biome Makers technology can deliver, allow Biospheres to offer a new way to evaluate the effect of these products under agricultural conditions.

“Microspheres Lab is very enthusiastic about the acquisition of Biome Makers license and the launch of new lab activities in France, in partnership with Biome Makers. In the continuity of Biospheres activities, the establishment of Microspheres Lab allows us to go further in our expertise in soil biology and more particularly in soil microbiology and its functionalities to advise farmers and companies,” said Biospheres founder and CEO Sébastien Roumegous. “This will allow us to meet a real demand from the agricultural world in terms of soil microbiological analysis, helping us to better understand and qualify soil health, as well as drawing operational conclusions for the improvement of agricultural practices.”

The partnership between Biome Makers and Microspheres Lab supports farmers, biostimulants companies and food industries to gain biological soil insights, evaluate and support the transition to agroecological practices and develop outcome-based programs toward regenerative agriculture. This collaboration will strengthen both companies’ ability to further serve the industry by using BeCrop¬® technology at the new Microspheres Lab.
