Bringing Soil to Life!
Soil Health Company with Products and Services to Improve the Profitability of Growers
Our Value Proposition
For farmers, especially those with high value crops who want to improve the quantity and/or quality of their yield, SymSoil RC increases and improves soil health, which in turn impacts the crop.
Different from Bug-in-a-Jug competitors, RC (Robust Compost) has broad biodiversity across 7 types of life. Wild-sourced microbes feed the plants the way nature intended.
SymSoil - What We Do
We farm wild-sourced soil microbes, and blend them into commodity compost which is essentially sterile. Thus, we have the best quality control and the lowest costs in the “Living Soil” industry. Ag Biologics are a $2.8B industry, with a 40% CAGR.
Using concepts from the shared economy, we solve two agricultural problems. As a service to organic farmers, SymSoil converts agricultural waste into rich compost for their use. Robust Compost is also known as Soil Food Web or Living Soil. In addition to cash, SymSoil receives product, which is used in the hub to source various types of microbes. These are farmed to create our core product, Robust Compost, which in turn is sold to other growers. Skilled artisans currently manufacture this product in small batches, and it is chronically in short supply. Its value lies in the reseeding of the soil microbes to restore fertility to the land.

Use of Funds
The challenge for outdoor and hydroponic growers is providing plants with nutrient cycling the way nature intended.
- Living Soil Biofertilizer (Robust Compost) is expensive and chronically in short supply
- Most product available has poor quality
- Soil microbiome impacts flavor, quality and, in the case of food, nutrient density
Healthy soil has thousands of species across 7 types of life. SymSoil farms each type of life, and recreates the complete soil ecosystem.
- Lowest production costs in the industry, through a new, patent pending, manufacturing process
- Quality Control based upon the ability to adjust each of 7 levers. (That is, we can adjust fungi, protozoa, etc. to engineer a specific solution for crop, soil or weather)
- Consistent quality for the core products, plus multiple revenue streams
Mainstream agriculture has historically changed slowly, but SymSoil’s disruptive technology leverages consumer trends towards organics, by offering farmers a rapid conversion to organic methodologies without increased costs.
Additionally, farmers throughout the United States are increasingly seeking improvements in water efficiency.
Can investors receive commissions?
Yes, most of our partners have agricultural backgrounds and connections with early adopters in their areas. Let’s talk about your unique situation and make it a mutually beneficial opportunity.
We have strong quality control protocols, but are currently working on a technology (hardware and software) to reduce costs with automation. As this solution is made available as a SAAS offering to existing soil labs, this will allow SymSoil to set the standards for the ag biologics industry.
