Terramera's Beginnings

Terramera was founded on a BIG IDEA: creating a world where we increase global agriculture yields by over 20% and reduce synthetic chemical loads by at least 80% without the use of harmful chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, to positively impact 1 billion people.

THIS IS OUR HISTORY

We have come a long way since our humble beginnings in 2010. Terramera has evolved into a company that is committed to creating a world where we increase global agriculture yields by over 20% without using harmful chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

Inspired by nature, we have developed a set of transformational
technologies that allow us to create revolutionary plant-based bio-pesticides that are more effective than conventional chemical pesticides.
