We are a unique company that works with a
worldwide network of agronomists and scientists.

We close­ly work with our clients to devel­op solu­tions that help agri­cul­tur­al pro­duc­ers max­i­mize oppor­tu­ni­ties and reduce pro­duc­tion costs and risks while increas­ing the sus­tain­abil­i­ty of their operations.

At SmartA­gro we design inno­v­a­tive crop­ping sys­tems, regen­er­ate soils, and make crop
and live­stock pro­duc­tion more resilient against cli­mate change and mar­ket fluctuation.

When imple­ment­ed on a large scale this tech­nol­o­gy can reverse glob­al warming.

We increase resources in the soil instead of extract­ing them.

SMART Tech­nol­o­gy offers a safe and 100% organ­ic sup­ply chain from start to fin­ish for

• crop and live­stock production,

• food processing,

• food preservation.

SMART Tech­nol­o­gy produces high­er qual­i­ty at low­er cost.

SmartA­gro’s goal is to increase envi­ron­men­tal health and ulti­mate­ly human health by sup­port­ing agribusi­ness­es in pro­duc­ing nutri­tious food in a sus­tain­able way.

We are at the most crit­i­cal moment in the his­to­ry of our human species, as changes to the cli­mate threat­en the func­tion­al­i­ty of Earth­’s ecosys­tem and with it human­i­ty’s secu­ri­ty. But there exists a tech­nol­o­gy for mas­sive plan­e­tary geo-engi­neer­ing that is tried and test­ed and avail­able for wide­spread dis­sem­i­na­tion imme­di­ate­ly. It costs lit­tle and is adapt­able to local con­texts the world over. It can be rolled out tomor­row pro­vid­ing mul­ti­ple ben­e­fits beyond cli­mate change adap­tion and mit­i­ga­tion. A real win-win for all stake­hold­ers involved: food pro­duc­ers, con­sumers and the plan­et as a whole.

The solu­tion is farm­ing in a regen­er­a­tive way by increas­ing soil fer­til­i­ty through prac­tices of no-till, inte­gra­tion of cov­er crops, crop rota­tion and rota­tion­al graz­ing, which could sequester more than 100% of cur­rent annu­al CO2 emis­sions.[1]

In late 2017 news made the head­lines that cur­rent­ly there was as much car­bon in the Earth’s atmos­phere as 800,000 years ago[2], some sci­en­tists even go back as far as 15 mil­lion years ago.[3]

In 2018 the world’s lead­ing cli­mate sci­en­tists have warned there is only 12 years to be kept to a max­i­mum of 1.5C and avoid cat­a­stroph­ic envi­ron­men­tal break­down. The authors of the land­mark report by the UN Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Pan­el on Cli­mate Change (IPCC) said urgent and unprece­dent­ed changes are need­ed to reach the tar­get.[4]

But even when we con­sid­er the full range of chal­lenges we col­lec­tive­ly face beyond cli­mate change, it becomes clear that agri­cul­tur­al prac­tices are the key to each one of them: from the pres­sures of pop­u­la­tion growth, urban­iza­tion, migra­tion, and con­flict due to food, ener­gy, and water inse­cu­ri­ty; in all its dimen­sions, human secu­ri­ty is increas­ing­ly frag­ile and in many parts of the world land degra­da­tion and cli­mate change are now rec­og­nized as con­tribut­ing fac­tors to a sense of grow­ing insta­bil­i­ty. [5]

A third of the planet’s land is severe­ly degrad­ed and fer­tile soils are being lost at the rate of 24bn tons a year, accord­ing to a recent Unit­ed Nations-backed study.[6]

The loss of the world’s fer­tile soil and bio­di­ver­si­ty, along with the near total loss (94%) of indige­nous seeds and knowl­edge [7], pose a mor­tal threat to our future sur­vival. Accord­ing to soil sci­en­tists, at cur­rent rates of soil destruc­tion (i.e. de-car­boniza­tion, ero­sion, deser­ti­fi­ca­tion, chem­i­cal pol­lu­tion), with­in 30 years we will not only suf­fer seri­ous dam­age to pub­lic health due to degrad­ed food with dimin­ished nutri­tion and loss of impor­tant trace min­er­als, but we will lit­er­al­ly no longer have enough arable top­soil to feed ourselves.

While agri­cul­tur­al mis­man­age­ment lies at the heart of our cur­rent social, eco­nom­ic and eco­log­i­cal prob­lems a rethink­ing and redesign of agri­cul­tur­al prac­tices holds the poten­tial to be the dri­ving force for revers­ing glob­al warm­ing and regen­er­at­ing the planet.

Without protecting and regenerating the soil, it will be impossible to feed the world, keep global warming below 1,5 degrees Celsius, or halt the loss of biodiversity.
