Spin-off Xtrem Biotech from the University of Granada has been recognised by accelerator TERRA as one of the 17 most innovative start-ups in the area of food and agriculture world-wide [1]. This accelerator offers a unique programme that looks to support cross-industry innovation as a model to create a global ecosystem. In addition, TERRA offers to work hand-in-hand with their selected businesses and support them through their acceleration process. [2]

In fact, after being recognised by TERRA, Xtrem Biotech noticed that doors opened for them to industry giants and will allow them to scale-up their internationalisation process. In addition, it will support development into new fields of study. [1] The current commercial products of the company are organic agricultural products that support root and metabolism development in plants by supporting the rhizospheric environment and nutrient absorption [3].

The development of the technology has been carried out by a research group at the University of Granada. The products are available on the Herogra website and are considered to be biostimulators. The hope is that they will help agriculture businesses have more successful crops while being more in-tune with their environment. [3]
