What is CarbonBuilder Barley?
Building soil carbon for barley crops
CarbonBuilder Barley is one of our ground-breaking microbial products that supports barley’s natural ability to draw down carbon into cropping soils. CarbonBuilder Barley is an endophytic fungi applied as a seed dressing, and is compatible with most fungicidal seed treatments in Australia.
CarbonBuilder provides an important tool for growers looking to participate in soil carbon projects and increase crop productivity.

What are the results?
CarbonBuilder Barley was trialled extensively through the 2021/2022 seasons. Here are the results.
CarbonBuilder Barley was successfully trialled over the 2021/2022 growing seasons. All trialling regions experienced higher than average rainfall, with some areas experiencing water logging. All of our trialling work was carried out under standard practice for the region in which the trial is grown.
Across our randomised small-plot trial locations, we observed an average 3.6% increase in total soil carbon when the crop was treated with CarbonBuilder Barley compared to crop that was not treated. We saw a win-rate of 71% across locations, or an increase in total soil carbon compared to control at 10 of 14 locations.
