With the introduction of Biotrack’s technology platform, a highly accurate, precise tool is now available to monitor microbial life in plants themselves, their irrigation water, or any medium of interest to growers and distributors. Coupled with our technology’s rapid testing abilities, Biotrack represents a quantum leap in the evolution of microbial testing, offering a host of revolutionary benefits to the agricultural industry.
Soils contain a mind-boggling diversity and abundance of microbes, and with each passing day these microbes become an ever more important aspect of modern agriculture. As with the human body–with each of us having upwards of tens of trillions of microbes living inside of us–bacterial communities of diverse composition form in different parts of plants. In many crops, the area near the roots alone contains thousands of different species, with microbial communities varying further across plant cultivars, soil types, and irrigation water sources.
