In recent years exponential technological innovation has been exploited to meet the economic efficiency and environmental requirements of agriculture. Nevertheless, the instruments available on the market only collect indirect information about the needs of plants by monitoring the soil and surrounding environment.
Starting from this observation, the Plantbit innovative start-up was born at the laboratories of CNR-IMEM in Parma.
The aim of this young enterprise is to provide farms with an instrument for optimizing the consumption of water, fertilizers, and early diagnosis of plant diseases.
Bioristor is the first in-vivo biosensor in the world, fully biocompatible and able to analytically monitor the health of plants in real time.
The mission of the dynamic Plantbit team is essentially to change the rules of agricultural management, while protecting the environment and farmers' incomes. Bioristor gives plants a voice.
