    Trace Genomics has developed the first analytics engine that learns as it maps the living soil. Founded in 2015 by two female founders to serve the agtech community, Trace Genomics helps growers maximize the value of every acre. We are building the largest, most actionable body of soil intelligence, making millions of growers experts on what’s underground. Working collaboratively across the agriculture ecosystem, Trace Genomics helps growers optimize costs, manage risk and protect their soil.

    We are VC-backed with over $19M in funding. Our team is comprised of top talents from the fields of data science, genetics, agronomy, software engineering, product development, and molecular biology. We take a user-centered approach to product development, focusing on understanding our users’ core needs and problems and delivering vertical slices of value to users throughout the product development lifecycle.

    We envision a future where agriculture harnesses biological and sustainable processes to produce healthy and delicious food.
