Building Viable Living Soils
Feeding a world population of 9.1 billion people in 2050 would require raising overall food production by some 70 percent between 2005 and 2050.
To grow this food, farmers and ranchers worldwide use 180 million tons of nitrogen fertilizer every year - much of which eventually runs into our precious groundwater, ponds, lakes waterways and oceans, causing red tides - algal blooms which kill aquatic life and cause pollution.
Conventional fertilizers no longer bring the crop yields they once did- unless measures are taken, much of the world’s present agricultural land will not be viable in the future to grow crops.
Six of the ten most affected countries in the world are in Africa, where many soils are no longer able to sustain agriculture.
Viable agricultural land and crop yields are decreasing, while populations are increasing at an alarming rate. Increasing applications of the same conventional synthetic products, trying ton obtain higher yields, only further exhausts the soil; resulting in diminishing crop yields, shorter shelf life and the added burden of to increased use of fungicides, insecticides and herbicides.
The soil biology essential to successful agriculture is lost due to inadequate farm practices and indiscriminate use of conventional fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Sustainable farming methods can reverse, reduce or eliminate the effects of this accumulated contamination.
Yet viable soils worldwide are disappearing at alarming rates. The use of toxic fertilizers and pest control is causing vast pollution in our soils, lakes rivers and oceans. Population growth is outpacing world food production - it is truly time for change.
Our mission is to assist those who are teaching farmers globally to produce highly beneficial foods grown in living soils - our aim is to decrease global hunger while cleaning our groundwaters. Our methods promote sustainable farming techniques, nutritional produce, and soil building applications. All are well tested and proven to be successful for many years.
