Excessive chemical inputs usage, hard soils, low pest resistance and stagnant/declining yields have become global challenges in agriculture. Majority of farmers today are struggling to balance higher input costs and maintenance of yields. This has led to a subsequent decline in profits with farmers actively searching for sustainable solutions or dropping farming as a business altogether.
Aggressive use of harsh chemical inputs leads to a decline in beneficial soil biology. This leads to a vicious cycle of higher requirement of chemical fertilizers as a nutrient source in the absence of adequate soil biological activity. Consequential high salt deposits and loss of organic matter further leads to hardening of soil, which ultimately impact crop yields as well as quality. Despite farmer awareness of such issues, growers are unable to implement sustainable solutions.
In an effort to alleviate such problems and ensure safe and healthy food, organic farming is often proposed as an option. However, the reason for its failure to implement and sustain is that it leads to lower yields and losses during the first few seasons of this transition towards organic farming. Such losses are not affordable for most farmers and dissuades them from trying such new methods.
New generation technologies are now available to bridge this gap. These technologies are biology booster technologies that promote the growth of beneficial soil biology whilst improving soil porosity, water holding capacity and % organic matter. Thus, they impart dual benefits of biofertilizers as well as soil amendments/soil conditioners. This allows farmers to benefit from enhanced and high-quality yields along with healthier soils.
Zytonic-M/Zytonic are new-generation Biology Boosters from Zydex that are bio-degradable and mycorrhiza biofertilizer, which are easy to use and are water-soluble. Similar to conventional fertilizers, the dosage of this water soluble biofertilizer consists of basal and top-dressing applications and can be applied via irrigation or broadcast onto the field. Thus, with healthier soils and an active soil biology, farmers are able to reduce and subsequently eliminate the use of harmful chemical inputs whilst maintaining sustained and even higher yields!
