UNIQUE UNDERSTANDING OF THE SOIL MICROBIOLOGYSponSenz is the first, in-the-field early detection sensor for plant diseases in soil and water. The device is simply inserted into the soil and samples the dominant microorganisms that are actively growing in the soil, facilitating a unique soil-health screen. Unlike other soil-health analysis services, the SporSenZ only detects living and actively growing microorganisms in the field. Users can truly understand the disease pressures within the soil at any given time, at a fraction of the cost and time of any competitor.
The SporSenZ technology and screening services detect both pathogenic and beneficial fungi in the field. Providing key information about the microbial community in the field to::
Understand disease risks before planting
Highlight the presence of disease risks in soil or water
Guide immediate and appropriate remedial actions to stop the spread of diseases
Help guide and plan crop protection strategies
Track important fungal microorganisms throughout a growing season
Understand the effectiveness of chemical or biological pest management controls, and monitor the development of resistance
We are an award-winning team made up of plant disease experts who specialise in developing soil-health solutions. We are leading exponents of the virtues of sustainable agriculture. Using our passion and expertise, we aim to increase agricultural yields sustainably by the discovery of microbial biocontrol agents.
FungiAlert soil health analyses allow for the isolation of crop pathogens and their competitors from fields. The SporSenZ samples microbes across a particular crop growing cycle, or across different seasons. Ultimately, our soil health analyses enables the collection of microorganisms (pathogenic and beneficials) associated to a crop in different geographies.
THE ADVANTAGES OF SPORSENZ
Our innovative SporSenZ sensor facilitates soil-health analysis that is cheaper than any other service currently available, it is:
Simple to use
