Instrument: Soil scanner with fast mobile technology to provide tailor-made soil management recommendations. The aim is to make agriculture climate-smart by addressing low nutrient contents in organic fertilisers and boost carbon sequestration in the soil.

Leverage: Scans are cheaper for farmers than the use of other technology. The business model is designed to encourage entrepreneurs to reach more farmers.

Request: Resources to calibrate the scanner and develop an app. Introduction to suitable partners for applying the technology.
