Abby Rose is a physicist-farmer building ecology, profitability and beauty on farms around the world, backed by simple apps and a podcast. She believes healthy soils are the key to a resilient farming future.
About 10 years ago her family started farming at vidacycle in Chile. It was through learning to be a farmer she realised farming is a risky craft and farmers will play a big role in determining the future of the Earth and its people. Abby developed the Sectormentor app to learn what works and build soil health on her farm, and it’s now used by small- to medium-scale vineyards on multiple continents. The system has a biological Soil Health Monitor, Vine Health Indicator, Ripeness Monitor and Yield Predictor plus much more. Abby also helps pioneering farmers share their stories and ideas through an award-winning monthly podcast she co-creates: Farmerama Radio.
