Pivot Bio is improving and using a deep understanding of the microbiome to advance crop nutrition. They believe that microbes can deliver nutrients, protect against pests, and improve crop quality better than chemical fertilizers and pesticides. They leverage engineering principles and data science to map the dynamics of the plant microbiome and evolve beneficial traits. Their team thrives on collaboration and communication as they seek to create revolutionary fertilizers that transform food supply and improves the planet. Pivot Bio's proprietary ON Technology harnesses the power of naturally occurring microbes to provide more nutrients to crops. It’s a smart, sustainable way for farmers to improve yield as they work to help feed the world’s growing population. Their current efforts are focused on enabling microbes to fix and supply more nitrogen to corn. Pivot Bio was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Berkeley, California, United States.
