NewLeaf Symbiotics: A Plant Microbiome Company

What if one company could use microbes to make plants healthier and help them overcome threats like pests, disease, and drought? What if it could position growers to meet the needs of the growing population by strengthening crops – naturally?

See what we've discovered.

That’s why we have a singular focus:

To discover and create a new class of safe, sustainable, and effective ag biological products that empower growers to improve crop health and yield.

Why We’re Developing a New Class of Microbials

At NewLeaf Symbiotics, we believe the Earth’s solutions to better farming are all around us. Our team works with partners worldwide to discover and activate the potential of plants by using the tools nature gave us. We develop products based exclusively on a new class of Ag Biologicals called M-trophs (Pink Pigmented Facultative Methylotrophs — one of the most abundant types of beneficial native microbes in the world). M-trophs are bio-complements that function in harmony with existing technologies and agricultural practices. We believe that’s the key to sustainable agriculture. Better together.

“Biologicals helped us have faster emergence, better growth, earlier growth, and got our rows shaded better and quicker.”

How We Develop Agriculture Biologicals

We discover and learn how M-trophs naturally colonize and live with plants. We use our proprietary platform, called the Prescriptive Biologics™ Knowledgebase to identify M-trophs that are especially important for strengthening plants, increasing root mass, improving plant growth and enhancing nutrient uptake for higher yield and better crop quality.

Singular focus

While others are taking a broad look at microbes in the plant biome, we’re conducting all of our research and development on M-trophs.

Unmatched depth

After sequencing thousands of M-troph strains, and following years of broad field trials, we know first-hand how M-trophs provide benefit to a wide range of crops.

Collaborative approach

Our entire company works closely with our customers to develop both broad and specialized applications of M-trophs that match strains to crops, implementing the best formulation and application methods, and even combining multiple M-troph strains in our products.
