FarmLab works with agribusinesses, research institutions and asset managers to provide better soil data in support of better environmental outcomes. 

Farmlab infrastructure provides the platform for samplers, labs and agribusinesses in Australia and the US to share and manage data, and their platform offers a network of trained and accredited independent soil samplers to support the sample collection and measurement of soil, plant and water on-farm. You can think of FarmLab like ‘Uber’, but for environmental testing.

Today FarmLab are supporting a variety of projects across state and federal government agencies, helping quantify soil carbon across Australia and working with various voluntary protocol providers in the US to reduce the cost of soil carbon measurement under their protocols.
