GUARANTEEING A RICH GROUND HERITAGE
Soils have been growing poorer for more than 20 years. Although the past results of conventional farming have led to accelerated growth in yields, this is no longer the case today. Yields are stagnating because the biological activity of the soil is weakening. This soil balance, human health and plants’ ability to defend themselves against pathogens.
Enriching the biological life of the soil again allows us to leave land that can offer optimal yields. Added to this is the advantage of being able to respond to future environmental and legal challenges: reduction in the supply of phytosanitary products, the release of carbon into the air, pollution of groundwater, and the nutritional value of food.
