Our tech platform makes microbes that produce nitrogen for farmers
We map trillions of interactions between living organisms in the soil to identify the rare microbes with the right internal DNA software to produce nitrogen.
We reverse engineer the DNA software that makes each microbe tick, and we evaluate billions of ways to reprogram the genetic blueprint to improve how much nitrogen each microbe produces.
Sensing the nutrient needs of the crop, our reprogrammed microbes reliably produce the right levels of nitrogen in any weather and throughout the growing season.
Distribute at Scale
Across millions of combinations of soil types, farming practices, and weather patterns, our products operate to fuel scalable, low-carbon agriculture.
Through nearly a decade of research, we understand how microbes work in nature before they adapted to heavy fertilizer use. We take that knowledge and enable these naturally occurring microbes to work as nature intended again.

Powered By Fermentation
Pivot Bio microbes are produced using fermentation. They are fed sugars and then allowed to grow until they've reached a high enough concentration to sell to farmers. Fermentation replaces the Haber-Bosch Process, the energy-intense production process for creating synthetic nitrogen, and reduces potential GHG emissions by 98%.
Driven By Field Data
Pivot Bio’s experienced agronomists conduct multiple trials across different geographies and weather conditions as part of a robust field testing platform. Partnering with growers and university agriculture programs, Pivot Bio analyzes millions of data points to develop products that work for farmers. We work closely with our customers to ensure their success.
