Unleash
the power
of microbes.

BioConsortia unleashes the power of microbes to meet the world’s food needs while reducing agriculture’s ecological impact.  BioConsortia’s products replace crop inputs with microbe-based superior solutions for nitrogen-fixation, disease control, nematode control, crop yield enhancement and post-harvest food safety.

Moving Nature Forward™

BioConsortia’s revolutionary R&D platform leverages directed selection and evolution of the microbiome as a discovery technology for microbials for use in agriculture.  Using this patented platform, the company develops products that leapfrog the performance of those available on the market today.

Challenges & Opportunities

The team at BioConsortia works every day to bring innovation to the way food is grown to feed the world.  It’s no easy task – in fact, experts estimate that the amount of food needed in the next 40 or 50 years is greater than the amount of food produced in the last 10,000 years of human civilization.  While producing the volume and quality of food needed is not possible without the use of fertilizers and pesticides, product innovations from BioConsortia aim to deliver alternatives that reduce ecological impact and support the safe, plentiful and sustainable future of food and agriculture.

Nitrogen Fixation

BioConsortia’s nitrogen fixation microbial innovations produce nitrogen in the root zone, even in the presence of fertilizer.  Delivered as robust seed treatments with long shelf life and easy application, the technology is the result of the company’s unique understanding of the genetic programming responsible for microbial nitrogen production and plant affiliation.

BioStimulants

Biostimulants from BioConsortia work to increase yields on arable lands by addressing stresses like drought, salt and weather.  Based on the company’s unique library of plant-associated microbes that solubilize soil nutrients or optimize biological growth processes in the root zone, BioConsortia’s biostimulants improve germination and increase yields in row crops, fruits, and vegetables.

BioPesticides

BioConsortia’s pipeline of biopesticides represents a new generation of microbes with the power to impact agriculture and protect the planet.  Sustainable, bio-based products that can replace synthetic chemical pesticides, BioConsortia’s products have been designed to protect fruits, vegetables and row crops from nematodes, bacterial pests and fungal diseases while they grow and to prevent post-harvest decay.
