We are an impact driven, remote-first, AgTech start up headquartered in Germany and Brazil with the goal to reverse climate change and make tropical agriculture more regenerative, low-carbon and sustainable.

Our stakeholders and clients are from all over the world, and we are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. Our team members (‘the rockees’) work across various cultures and time zones, and we are growing…

Our Vision is to remove gigatons (that's billions of tons) of CO2 from the atmosphere in a permanent, scalable and safe way.

Our Mission is to enable farmers in the tropics to replace synthetic fertilisers, pesticides and limestone with (silicate) rock powder from local mines.
