Manufacturing, scaling, and field-deployment of novel proximal sensors to measure soil health
Miraterra introduces a completely new way to look at soil. The project will advance revolutionary innovation in Raman spectroscopy – Miraterra’s novel sensor.
Miraterra’s sensor technology reduces operational costs of soil carbon measurement, with a sensor that unlocks unprecedented fast and affordable complex materials analysis for soil testing labs.
Its Raman sensors provide near instantaneous measurement of soil pH, soil organic carbon, organic matter %, and importantly, carbon contained in subpools of organic matter (i.e. particulate organic matter (POM) and mineral associated organic matter (MAOM)). This technology is fast, provides scans at approximately one-third the cost of conventional sampling, eliminates the need for toxic chemicals in conventional soil carbon sampling, and will be deployable in-field. The Raman sensor is part of a suite of Carbon MMV products being developed at Miraterra.
