Extremophiles for a sustainable agriculture
Pre-Seed
Tucuman, Argentina

What's the Problem?

Soil is a non-renewable natural resource. However, current agricultural practices have accelerated its degradation, making much of it unsuitable for cultivation. According to the FAO, 33% of the world's arable land is already degraded by salinization and chemical pollution. In the next few years, 4 billion people, 50% of the world's population, are expected to live in arid areas, and this puts the food supply at risk. Although a sustainable alternative to this problem is the use of biological inoculants, the existing products in the current market are only effective in fertile soils.

How are they Solving it?

CKAPUR's goal is to break down the bioinoculant barrier. The key to its technology is the use of extremophilic microorganisms, isolated from the highest saline desert on the planet, which enable the growth of plants in extreme conditions. CKAPUR inoculants work better than any other in fertile soils, make saline soils productive and have the advantage of being suitable for a wide spectrum of crops. By taking advantage of the full potential of the extremophiles, production on degraded soils will cease to be a utopia.
