BioConsortia

BioConsortia, Inc. is developing highly effective microbial solutions that enhance plant phenotypes and increase crop yields. The company is pioneering the use of directed selection in identifying teams of microbes - working like plant breeders and selecting plants based on targeted characteristics, then isolating the associated microbial community. The company's proprietary Advanced Microbial Selection (AMS) process enriches the crop microbiome, allowing to identify microbes that influence the expression of beneficial traits in plants. BioConsortia is focused on products for fertilizer use efficiency, growth improvement and abiotic tolerance, with plans to invest in biocontrol and metabolite expression with the right partner.
