Prakalp Sanjivani: Retaining Soil Health through Zydex’s Organic Breakthrough
The world is concerned about soil health due to the uncontrolled use and dependence on chemical fertilizers and crop care chemicals. The current methods of farming have resulted in the depletion of soil fertility, increased water pollution, deforestation and loss of biodiversity.
Depletion of organic matter and loss of biology has led to soils becoming hard and compact and lower fertility.
Sustainable agriculture demands that soils need to be soft and porous to maintain a healthy biological population and activity leading to a larger root zone for optimal nutrient absorption by the crop.
The key will be new technologies to eliminate the use of chemical fertilizers, crop care chemicals should result into higher yields with less water, making effective and sustainable agriculture a reality.
Zydex brings a new revolution to the farm sector through the project Farm Revival (Prakalp Sanjivani), a chemical free farming initiative. The new bio-farming technology has a unique ability which makes the soil soft and porous. Moreover, it inoculates soils with the right biology such as Mycorrhiza, Nitrogen-fixing bacteria, Phosphorous and Potassium solubilizing bacteria (NPK consortia), Zinc solubilizing bacteria, etc. The key feature is to extend white root zone and a large active rhizosphere to increase water and nutrient absorption. This enables farmers to completely eliminate chemical fertilizers. Moreover, the Zytonic Godhan (Bio-digester) technology allows complete fungal bio-digestion of farm yard manure (cow dung, etc.) into blackish, free flowing and odorless manure of equivalent quality as vermicompost within 30-45 days. This is a game changer and allows farmers to produce and use high quality and completely bio-digested manure to further boost their soil biology and overall fertility, with very less labour.
The novel bio-farming approach innovated by Zydex for sustainable agriculture, uses anti-transpirational nanotechnology that stimulates growth, manages water stress and improves crop health. The new Zydex nano-encapsulation technology with neem oil for plants is a boon for crop protection, with best-in-class performance.
Improved soil structure and a higher stable organic content allows the soil to remain soft and porous throughout the crop cycle, 365 days/year. The seasonal rains gets absorbed in the farm soils due to an improved infiltration rate. The farmer is able to absorb rainwater in his own field and replenish the water table. With a larger root zone and elimination of chemical fertilizers, water consumption reduces up to 50%, leading to further recharging of the groundwater table.
Hence, the ground-breaking Zytonic bio-farming technology allows profitable and sustainable farming with healthy soils by reducing chemical inputs and water usage leading to nutritious, safe and plenty food for all.
