Increased productivity by 12 percent with a technology applied directly to the seed. This was possible after intensive research on the application of carbon dioxide in seeds, particularly in soybean, corn and bean crops. This is the achievement of the agritech startup Dioxd Laboratory, and crop tests confirm the success that can leverage production. The startup seeks financial support to reach the seed market on a large scale.
The studies were developed by agronomy student João Americo Macori Barboza. Born in the granary region of Paraná, the agribusiness capital of the region, Londrina, in southern Brazil.
The concept started early, in a science fair. At the age of 12 João Americo developed an agricultural technique through laboratory experiments. From then on, encouraged by his school teachers and his family of farmers, he developed scientific initiation research focused on the field. From then on he has been accumulating participations and prizes in several agricultural technology shows around the world, particularly in the United States and Italy. Here in Brazil the highlight was the science fair of the University of São Paulo (USP) (https://febrace.org.br/) among others.
Startup Dioxd passed through all field tests, with endorsement from universities and from Kasuya Inteligência Agronômica, a consolidated agronomic engineering company in the so-called MATOPIBA region, which includes part of the Northeastern states of Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia. Kasuya also operates in Mato Grosso. Both are giant areas of Brazilian agricultural production.

“We started developing a whole methodology in 2014. Since then we have won several awards. We won a credential to take part in a show in the USA, in Huston, Texas, the I-Sweep, which is a show focused on sustainable development and engineering present in the United States,” says João Barboza.
The startup is mature, with certifications including academic. “Our methodology has economic viability, we have conducted tests in the laboratory, in the field, scientific validation in universities, with statistics, in short we have conducted all the tests within the standard that is required by publications in national and international journals,” he says.
The current stage is the presentation of the Dioxd case for investors with the intention of introducing the product to the market in a large scale. The startup is accelerated by Cyklo Agritech, located in the city of Luis Eduardo Magalhães, Bahia.
