WE BELIEVE THERE’S A BETTER WAY
Sound Agriculture merges modern scientific knowledge with the needs of today’s growers to provide tools that allow them to succeed in this rapidly changing world. Our new class of products tackle some of today’s biggest farming challenges and enable sustainability across the agriculture value chain.
Traditional tools have not kept pace with the fundamental needs of growers, often having negative impacts on farm profitability and the long-term health of the land. We believe there is a better way. Sound technology offers cost-efficient and sustainable solutions to transform crop productivity.
Sound’s breakthrough scientific discoveries about how plants interact with the environment have resulted in products that allow growers to boost nutrient use efficiency, drought tolerance, plant growth and stress resilience among crops, while reducing reliance on water and fertilizer.
Rapid Discovery Platform
Proprietary research and high throughput learnings allow for new discoveries at speeds never before available.
Effective and Reliable Results
Science-backed products have proven results in the lab and field.
Tools are created with the grower in mind leading to ease of use and the ability to scale quickly.
Eric and Travis started Sound Agriculture with extensive expertise in microbiology and biochemistry, and a passion for applying lab-based research to real-world issues. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation provided early funding that supported the development of a product to tackle major problems for smallhold farmers in sub-Sahara Africa. After that success, the team expanded its data-driven rapid discovery platform and gained a proprietary understanding of the complex interactions between molecules and plants. These insights have led to new technologies that are revolutionizing the way growers around the globe manage environmental stress issues in the field.
