Earth Rover Program is a new not-for-profit organization. Making novel use of cheap and dispatchable technologies, its purpose is to improve our knowledge of the soil, both enhancing scientific understanding and enabling farmers to raise fertility and crop production while reducing environmental impacts. In our first 2.5 years, we will benchmark and image soils below-ground, improving our understanding of their properties on sites around the world. This initial phase will enable us to refine the methodology before pursuing further development and deployment. Our approach has the potential to help address one of humanity’s most urgent challenges: feeding the world within environmental limits.
The organisation has been co-founded by Simon Jeffery, Reader in Soil Ecology at Harper Adams University; George Monbiot, author of Regenesis and Honorary Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford; and Tarje Nissen-Meyer, former Professor of Geophysics at the University of Oxford / Professor in Environmental Intelligence at the University of Exeter; and Katie Bradford, Operations Specialist.
