BAM-FX technologies were initially developed for use by NASA astronauts to grow fresh, robust and nutrient-dense food crops in Space. These technologies are now providing world agriculture with valuable and sustainable solutions to challenges here on earth. We are using our BAM-FX® plant priming technology to introduce a family of breakthrough agricultural products designed to increase crop yields and quality while also addressing crop plant mineral deficiencies and the stress-related challenges facing agriculture worldwide.
One-half the world’s agricultural soils are estimated to be deficient in zinc, leading to decreased crop production and nutritional value. Other major challenges include the now common weather events resulting in excessive heat and drought, frost and wind damage, population growth and crop mineral deficiencies, known as hidden hunger of humans on our planet and soil degradation caused by excessive use of chemicals/fertilizers.
Our commercially available flagship product, BAM-FX®, represents a breakthrough platform technology that has shown the ability to increase growth, yield, and food/crop quality. BAM-FX is also considered a bridge technology that may increase the performance of other crop production and protection inputs.
After years of research and development including mission flights to the International Space Station, university studies, toxicity studies, laboratory testing, and analysis and extensive field testing on a wide range of crops, BAM-FX is being commercialized by BAM Agricultural Solutions, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc and is also being made available through the subsidiary Specialty Agricultural Solutions, Inc.
