About us

Every year, 24,000,000,000 tons of fertile soil are lost

While the population increases.

Agriculture is under high pressure and is becoming increasingly dependent on chemical giants.

Rising population, less area

Food production must increase 56 % by 2050.

Agricultural productivity has not grown since 2013, putting farmers under pressure

Why us and why now?

Our Values

We have started this journey to make agriculture ready for the future. This must be in harmony with nature, without overlooking the responsibility to feed the world's population. 

And why golf? Grasses on golf courses are the most difficult crops to manage. As a start-up, we have to prove our impact. If sustainability and biodiversity are worthwhile here, then it is worthwhile everywhere under all conditions.

I am convinced that a healthy microbiome will significantly influence a sustainable turnaround. In order to be able to observe and assess both positive and negative changes, I analyze large data sets for alganize studies.
