Making food available to everyone and keeping it that way is our main ambition at Soil & More Impacts (SMI). With the onset of the climate crisis, this has become even more challenging. Therefore, we are kicking our activity into a high gear.

We want to help growers and retailers to be sustainable by reaching their crop yield targets, enhancing soil quality, and managing and adapting to the risks they face.
