    When asked, "Why do you climb mountains?" there is a mountaineer who answered, "Because there is a mountain there."
    What would you say when asked, "Why do you make soil?"

    Because there are soil microorganisms there.
    DGC Technology answers yes.

    When asked, "Who is cooking for?", there is a culinary researcher who answered, "For those who cook." What would you say when asked, "For whom do you prepare soil?"

    For next generation agriculture.
    DGC Technology answers yes.

    So that your work will continue to make many people smile. 
    So that your soil preparation will forever revitalize the earth.
    DGC technology supports the creation of soil with diverse and active soil microorganisms.

    DGC Technology is a company that measures the diversity and activity value of soil microorganisms.

Soil microbes are the solution

"Creating soil with consideration for soil microorganisms" can solve various problems facing agriculture.
Do you have any problems or concerns that come to mind?

  • poorly rooted

    A cluster of soil particles is called a "aggregate".
    Remember, it's a "dumpled grain".

    Agglomeration creates many gaps in the soil.
    This gap is very happy for the "roots of the plant".

    However, soil particles cannot form lumps by themselves.
    Substances produced by soil microorganisms act as glue, and the grains stick together.

    Soil preparation that is conscious of soil microorganisms will improve root growth.

    Soil microbes are the solution
  • resistance to soil diseases
    i feel low

    Every microbe has a weak opponent.
    All microorganisms compete for food and habitat.

    If a variety of soil microorganisms are alive,
    Germs cannot go it alone.
    This is because the number of opponents that pathogens have to compete with increases.

    Creating soil in which a variety of soil microorganisms live will increase resistance to soil diseases.

    I feel that my resistance to soil diseases has decreased
  • confused about climate change

    Summer is too hot these days, isn't it?Would you like to be surprised by the guerrilla rain?It's about climate change caused by global warming.This is a serious situation for agriculture.

    The cause is carbon dioxide (hereafter, CO2) emitted into the air.
    Did you know that fixing carbon in the soil can reduce CO2 emissions?

    Soil microorganisms and organic matter are masses of carbon.
    When organic matter, which is food for soil microorganisms, is put into the field,
    Soil microorganisms will increase.It then decomposes the organic matter.

    Organic matter that has not been decomposed by soil microorganisms remains in the field.
    Remaining organic matter and increased soil microbes fix carbon in the soil.A lot.

    Soil preparation that is conscious of soil microorganisms will reduce the impact of climate change.

  • Diversity and
    measure the activity value

    Thousands or more kinds of soil microorganisms live in 1g of soil.
    It is so small that it is almost invisible to the naked eye.
    Too many to count.XNUMX% of them are of unknown species.It's too mysterious.

    It is not possible to create soil that considers soil microorganisms if it is "invisible and uncountable."However, it cannot be seen or counted.There were researchers who stood up to fill this gap.

    Measuring the diversity and activity value of soil microorganisms

    You can see that there are as many creatures as there are stars.

  • "Overall Soil Microorganisms
    measure the degree of contribution

    Soil microorganisms contribute by arranging things like food, clothing and shelter for the roots.

    The researchers focused on this "contribution of all soil microorganisms." Instead of using "soil microorganisms themselves" as an indicator, I came up with the idea of ​​using "the conditions under which all soil microorganisms contribute" as an indicator.

    The more diverse and active soil microorganisms are, the better the food, clothing and shelter of the roots will be.In other words, the higher the diversity and activity value of soil microorganisms, the higher the contribution.

    However, the researchers ran into the following conundrum.
    What is the diversity and activity value of soil microorganisms measured by?

    Advances in technologies such as genetic analysis and electron microscopy have made soil microbes more accessible.However, even with the latest technology, it was not intractable.Soil microorganisms are too diverse.

    However, just when they were about to give up, the researchers came up with another idea.
    "That's right, wouldn't it be better to measure the 'eating' of soil microorganisms?"

    Different soil microorganisms eat different organic matter.If the soil microbes are diverse, they should be eating various types of organic matter.
    Also, if the soil microorganisms are active, the speed of decomposing organic matter should be fast.

    In other words, it can be said that soil microorganisms are diverse and active if they decompose many types of organic matter quickly.

  • world's First
    of DGC Technology
    Soil microorganism analysis technology

    Whether the field is rich in diverse and active soil microorganisms.
    It measures how soil microorganisms decompose organic matter.
    The quantified value is called "Soil Microbial Diversity/Activity Value (BIOTREX®︎)".

    BIOTREX measures the so-called "eating" of soil microorganisms.The entire soil microbial community in the field is the object of measurement.
    There is no need to detect specific bacteria or count them.

    If the "plenty of food" is good, the soil microbial community in the field is diverse and active.It can be said that the soil microorganisms are functioning in the field.

    No specific microorganisms are isolated and cultured for measurement.
    Dilute the soil (sample) collected from the field and put it in the test plate as it is.
    In other words, the entire soil microorganisms in the field are measured.

    The plate contains 95 different types of organic matter.
    Add the diluted sample.
    Each organic matter is examined at a rate at which soil microorganisms living in the sample decompose it.

  • Diversity and
    Value generated by activation value

    Imagine farming in fields with low soil microbial diversity and activity.

    It is very difficult to manage the water in the fields where the aggregate structure has been lost and the drainage and retention of the water have deteriorated.Organic matter in the soil does not decompose, and fertilization management increases the burden both in terms of work and money.Crops become vulnerable to soil diseases, and repeated soil disinfection.

    Not only would the growing environment for crops deteriorate, but it would also require more work.
    It can't be helped that humans take over what soil microorganisms do.

    Next, imagine farming in fields with high soil microbial diversity and activity.

    A field where you can feel the benefits of the entire ecosystem, starting with soil microorganisms.
    In addition to cultivating crops, agriculture takes pride in making soil.
    A network of consumers seeking crops with high soil microbial diversity and activity.

    Even if the number of people flying into space increases, the taste that people want is here.
    Creating soil that takes soil microorganisms into consideration will connect people with each other.It connects people and nature.Connect with gratitude.

    What kind of soil do you want to aim for?

    Because there are soil microorganisms there.
    DGC technology supports your soil preparation.
