Imagine a world where crops are so strong that they...
At Blomitec we make this dream reality. We unleash the beneficial power of natural microorganisms that live in and outside the plant, designing robust crops that grow with a minimal input of chemicals and energy.
Plant are naturally full of probiotic bacteria and fungi that nurture the plant and shield it against diseases and stress. Together, plant-associated microorganisms are called the microbiome. Even if it is invisible, the microbiome is an integral part of the plant. It is often called the plant’s “second genome”: Only half of the plant’s genes are found in its own genome. The rest is hidden in microorganisms, which provide all the plant needs to be strong and productive.
Microbiome deterioration and the loss of crop quality: Breeding and cultivation practices have improved the plant genetic material but let the microbiome deteriorate. As a result, probiotic microbes are suppressed by parasitic ones. This is a serious issue for your yield, as without probiotic microbes plants lose their ability to respond to stress. This results in high mortality, irregular plant growth and poor overall quality. At Blomitec, we restore plant quality by grooming the microbiome, thereby allowing probiotic microorganisms to strive and restore plant quality.
The importance of microorganisms for plant growth is known for decades, but it has remained virtually impossible to reliably steer the natural plant microbiome to obtain desired plant traits. Blossom’s proprietary Microbiome Improvement Technology solves this issue. We have developed targeted interventions that cleans the microbiomes from parasitic organisms, rescuing and stimulating the beneficial ones and ensuring robust plants and reliable yields. We use state-of-the art DNA-based technology combined with a specially developed artificial intelligence algorithm to identify and stimulate the probiotic microorganisms naturally contributing to robust plant growth. Our technology is 100% organic, GMO-free, and compatible with existing production systems.
Our microbiome improvement technology offers a fast, targeted and effective plant enhancement. Our services are available along the whole value chain including:
We Compensate traits lost during phenotype selection
We reduce plant heterogeneity and mortality.
We ensure that plants reach the desired quality in the existing production facilities.
We provide a longer shelf life and reduce spoiling by rots and pathogens
We provide a comprehensive service package to redesign your plants and production conditions, specifically improving plant characteristics required for the efficient and sustainable production of high-quality plants.
We are a team of passionate plant scientists, microbiologists and horticulture specialists dedicated to the improvement of plant production. We believe that sustainability and profitability are two sides of the same coin. To reach this vision, we have distilled decades of expertise in horticulture into an A.I.- driven microbiome improvement pipeline that makes plants so strong that they grow with less protection products, light and fertilizers. And all this fully naturally, without pesticides and GMO-free. Together with our partners and customers, we are making horticulture cleaner, safer and more efficient.
