Our Vision

Agriculture is facing a challenge greater than ever before in human history: feeding 9.5 billion people in 2050 with less water, chemical fertilisers, fossil fuels and phytopharmaceutical products, all in an environment of global warming and scarcity of arable land.

In response to this challenge, Mycophyto offers a range of innovative solutions to optimize natural biological balances and increase the resilience of agricultural systems.

Our Aim: to help develop a new agriculture that meets social, environmental and economic expectations.

Our natural biological products and our technological prediction and decision support tools allow us to restore biological diversity to agro-ecosystems in the long term .
