Loam addresses climate change, while creating value for agriculture, by harnessing the power of microbes.

Microbial soil sequestration promises to be one of the most elegant carbon removal solutions, as it is quick, globally-scalable and provides huge benefits for growers.

A farmer coats their seeds with the microbial inoculum before sowing and the plants and the microbes work together to build carbon in the soil and keep it there.

Building soil carbon in this way has additional benefits, such as increased soil health, nutrient-rich crops and higher yields, which boost the bottom line for growers and provide a path for generating high quality carbon offsets.
