Trace Genomics and Taurus Agricultural Marketing partner to bring next-generation soil testing to Canada

Trace Genomics (Trace), an industry-leading provider of science-validated soil biology insights, and Taurus Agricultural Marketing (Taurus Ag), market-leading distributor of agricultural products in Canada, announced an international partnership today. As part of a multi-year plan, Taurus Ag will be the exclusive Canadian provider of Trace soil diagnostics, bringing the most comprehensive insights and actionable information on soil biology to retailers, consultants, agronomists, and growers within the market for the first time.

Trace is revolutionizing agricultural soil testing by providing comprehensive, actionable insights to growers and retailers in the United States, and now, Canada. Trace's technology incorporates aspects of the soil beyond chemistry. By analyzing soil biology through metagenomics (sequencing all the DNA in a soil), agronomists can gain a more comprehensive picture of the variables that impact product placement and seed selection. This includes data on over 225 pathogens for 70+ crops, fertility insights on nitrogen and phosphorus, as well as all the standard soil chemistry tests. In Canada, this means guidance for better management of significant pathogens like club root that threaten their top cash crop, canola.
