About Us

Introducing a new era of data-driven land management

Downforce Technologies is a pioneering leader in science-led, data-driven land management solutions focused on optimising soil health, soil organic carbon levels, and biodiversity. With over 30% of the world's soil already degraded, urgent action is needed to address this pressing global challenge.

Soil erosion not only threatens global food security but also exacerbates climate change by releasing carbon into the atmosphere. At Downforce Technologies, our mission is to combat soil degradation head-on, ensuring a resilient and thriving planet for future generations. We revolutionise land management with our science-led, data-driven platform, empowering farmers, landowners, and supply chains to make informed decisions that preserve and restore soil health on a global scale.

Our platform offers a complete, high-resolution view of the land's carbon profile, enabling precise analysis and site-specific strategies for optimizing carbon levels. Whether you oversee a farm, manage a land portfolio, or are responsible for an entire landscape, our intuitive interface eliminates the need for labour-intensive soil sampling methods. Instead, you gain access to accurate, high-resolution data to protect soil health, combat climate change, and create a sustainable future guided by science and data.
