Mid Atlantic Microbials
The widespread and decadeslong use of chemical fertilizer and pest control treatments in agriculture has led to massive soil degradation worldwide. As a result, soil conditions are
increasingly disease-friendly and non-aerobic, which lead to problems with compaction,
erosion and an overall decline of soil quality.
Current solutions, such as the application of manure, often have
adverse effects on the
surrounding environment. Runoff
carries excess nutrients such as phosphate into local waters,
creating toxic algae blooms that harm wildlife. Simultaneously, the population continues to grow, and with it the
demand for increased farm productivity (as much as 70% by
the mid-century). The
conventional toolkit is
unequipped to meet this need. Today’s “solutions” not only often cause more harm than good, but they lack a critical component: soil biology science.
