Rhizocore Technologies produce locally-adapted mycorrhizal fungi pellets enhance tree planting success, and fit effortlessly into your planting process, ensuring that new saplings flourish, build resilience to drought, and overcome the mortality rates so often seen across the forestry industry.
What led you to setting up Rhizocore?
I came into contact with Deep Science Ventures, one of the University of Edinburgh’s partners for the FAST Programme, as I was finishing my PhD in plant pathology.
The programme paid me to spend a year looking at controlled environment agriculture and other areas within agritech to see where there was room for new ventures.
One of the concept companies I created was Rhizocore. We decided it was the most likely to seed and would also have the largest upside for the planet, biodiversity and carbon sequestration. We have been running with it ever since.
