Unlocking Resilient Farming


Growers rely on recirculating water systems to irrigate their crops and control the growing media. Thousands of microbes interact in this complex environment. KYTOS technology unveils the microbial unknown and grants growers the tools to safeguard the microbiome health of their greenhouses.

The Status Quo

The industry’s transition to soilless and vertical farming has made recirculating water systems the main highway for microbes to colonize the vegetable crops. 

  1. A lack of microbiome management induces plant stress 
  2. Plant stress causes slow plant development and can be accompanied by disease symptoms
  3. Diagnostic assays are sometimes performed to identify the disease-causing agent
  4. Treatments are prescribed to recover plant health without knowledge on the microbiome status

KYTOS Technology

Instead of focusing on individual pathogens, we measure all bacteria, algae, fungi, and sometimes even large viruses in your system. Up to 100,000 measurements of individual cells are used to create a complete microbial fingerprint of the water. Supervised learning translates this fingerprint into actionable microbiome health indicators. 

What does this mean for your farm?
Weekly assessment of microbiome health leads to the early identification of microbial threats and opportunities in your system. Together with product suppliers we are working to create complete treatment solutions tailored to your microbiome.
