Nutrient technology that’s good for farmers and the environment.Challenge
To consistently grow healthy crops, farmers add fertilizers to soil. The manufacturing and application of synthetic commercial fertilizers, however, comes with both a financial and environmental cost.
Vast quantities of fertilizer nutrients are not retained in soil. These run-off in to lakes and streams and also leach into ground water, polluting our environment and poisoning our water. The effects of nutrient pollution can been seen in many places, including the Gulf of Mexico “Dead Zone.”
A cost-effective and sustainable approach for increasing crop yields while protecting our environment is urgently needed.
