importance of soil & water biodiversity monitoring

Soil and water biodiversity contributes to ecosystem services such as nutrient cycling, water filtration, pest control, carbon storage, and soil stablization

To comply with regulations and protect Brand reputation, organizations need to be able to assess their impact on biodiversity wherever they operate

Technological advancements mean mapping and assessing soil & water biodiversity from regional to global scales is now feasible

Systematically measuring changes in the soil and water, in a scalable and verifiable manner, is critical to ensuring diversity is continuously preserved, restored or replaced

Soil and water biodiversity includes organisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, insects, and other invertebrates

Appropriate microbial communities for a given location are context-specific - there is no one-size fits all

Assessing and conserving ecosystem health using species abundance, evenness and richness as indicators is critical to reduce biodiversity loss

Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis now established as a quantitative estimation tool for biodiversity. complementary to standard soil & water tests for organic matter, pH, nutrients and trace minerals

Applications of eDNA

Invasive or Protected Species Detection

Multiple Species Monitoring

Total Biodiversity Measurements

accelerated genetic progress:

Identification of desirable genetics traits (meat production, feed efficiency, disease resistance) at younger age, accelerating genetics progress within a herds.

health & welfare:

Prioritize traits like reproductive health and resistance to diseases, reducing the risk of breeding stock transmitting detrimental traits.

increased efficiency:

Improved genetics can lead to better feed conversion rates, reduced veterinary costs, and lower mortality rates.

long-term sustainability:

Healtheir, more efficient animals are not only economically advantageous but also reduce the environmental footprint of intensive farming.
