Anuvia Plant Nutrients has been recognized by Fast Company as one of the world’s Next Big Things in Tech. The inaugural award program is the magazine’s first to focus entirely on technological advances, honoring “technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of their industries in the next five years.”
Anuvia was recognized for its proprietary nutrient technology that replaces or augments traditional fertilizers, allowing large-scale agricultural crops to be grown sustainably. The company’s unique process applies the natural principles associated with organic matter in the soil to create an enhanced efficiency plant nutrition product. The result is increased crop yields for farmers, healthier soil, and improved environmental protection.
“For an agricultural input to be recognized next to the likes of artificial intelligence and other foundational technologies speaks to the innovation we’ve brought to the industry,” said Amy Yoder, CEO, Anuvia Plant Nutrients. “It also underscores the importance of bringing technologies to market that both make an instant impact on farming and ensure an abundant food supply for future generations.”
By upcycling organic materials into plant nutrient products that work with the ecosystem, not against it, Anuvia’s technology is helping to maximize agriculture production now and for the long term all while supporting sustainability.
