While less than 10% of living organisms in soil can be isolated by conventional identification methods, analysis of the microbiome by DNA sequencing detects all organisms present in the soil. Analysis of the microbiome helps identify and quantify biological indicators. These new indicators combined with physical and chemical indicators can be used by predictive models to define indices of soil productivity, disease risk and carbon sequestration efficiency.
Join the Microbiome Network and have access to HORUS, the web application that allows you to view detailed analysis results for all your geolocated soil samples within your fields.
Horus allows you to compare the results of analyzes of a field:
The use of HORUS and access to provincial and regional reference data represent a decision support tool in the following agronomic issues:
