Agriculture research

In the Agricultural research section, we aim to understand the mechanisms behind the relationship between rock flour application and crop response. This knowledge will help optimize the usage of rock flour for agricultural purposes. We also seek to determine the optimal application rates and repetition strategies for different soil types, crops, and climates. Additionally, we focus on quantifying the CO₂ uptake resulting from the dissolution of rock flour, ensuring its eligibility for carbon credits.
