Andes Ag’s US-rooted innovation: Microbes turn farms into carbon sinks, propelling sustainable agriculture forward

Andes Ag, Inc. is leading a transformative movement in carbon sequestration through the innovative use of microbes in agricultural soil. Co-founders Gonzalo Fuenzalida and Tania Timmermann-Aranis have harnessed the power of these microbes to create minerals in the soil, effectively capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Through collaboration with farmers, Andes integrates these microbes into existing soil treatments, providing dual benefits of carbon capture and enhanced soil health, leading to increased crop yields.

This pioneering strategy not only addresses climate change but also brings economic advantages to farmers, demonstrating a harmonious blend of environmental and agricultural interests.

With continued advancements in production scalability and cost reduction, Andes Ag, Inc. is driving significant progress towards a sustainable future, setting a promising precedent for global climate action.
