ACCELERATE2030

GLOBAL FINALIST PROFILE

“Our mission is to eliminate the usage of chemicals in agriculture through our technology which enables farmers to produce their own biofungicide, biopesticide, and other necessary products in agriculture.”

BRAZIL

The Problem

  • Usage of chemicals in agriculture: Chemicals are killing the soil and breaking its balance, as the products not only kill the diseases but also natural enemies. New evidence is demonstrating that this has an impact on multi-drug resistant bacteria, which is a serious threat to health globally.
  • Affordable agriculture: Agriculture is changing as plants adapt to increase in pesticides. This causes an increase in cost of agricultural product to maintain the same quality of product, thereby increasing the cost of fresh food globally.  

The Solution

We have developed an integrated technology comprised by a complete programme of products and services for biological pest management on farm. This programme includes:

  1. Labfarm: a laboratory for the production of bacteria and fungi on farm, following industrial patterns and standards.
  2. Biofabrica On Farm: an equipment with proprietary technology for multiplication of fungi and bacteria of agricultural use in the farm.
  3. Solufarm: A kit with bacteria and fungi, sanitizer, antifoam and the food for growing the bacteria/fungi.
  4. Support On Farm: A professional team to support farmers to produce biological products on farm: Training people, checking processes, recommending treatments, checking results, checking customer satisfaction and more.

Markets and Scaling Ambitions:

  • Current Markets: Brazil
  • Scaling Ambitions: Latin America (Argentina or Paraguay), In EU (Italy or Portugal), in Africa (Nigeria), in North America (Mexico) and in Oceania (Australia).
