Agriculture

One of our most fundamental needs is food – sufficient, nutritious, safe, and affordable. For 50 years or more, with a few notable and persistent exceptions, we have all benefited from the remarkable output and advances of our modern food system. Notwithstanding these accomplishments, our food production system is increasingly being stressed. Indeed, over the next few decades, demand for food is forecast by many to grow faster than supply.

Since 1960, the world’s population has more than doubled to 6.7 billion people, and we will have more company soon: an additional 2.5 billion over the next 15 years. Just as importantly, worldwide per capita caloric intake is also rising, particularly in the developing world, as are the consumption of meat, dairy, and fresh produce, which require far greater agricultural output per calorie consumed than other forms of food. Indeed, to keep up with demand, more food will have to be produced over the next fifty years than was produced over the last 10,000 years combined! Factor in the growing use of grains for bio-fuels and demand for agricultural production is forecast to rise 3.3% per year.

Our products, based on Natural Power Balanced (NPB) technology, combine advanced microbiology, new insights in soil chemistry and the accumulated wisdom of traditional farming practices, to improve crop yields and farm profitability, while reducing or altogether eliminating the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Our products are part of a reemerging biologics paradigm in the agriculture sector; a clear departure from the long-prevalent chemicals-based model. It is indeed possible have your share of bread or cake or biryani and eat it too!

What is Ecology ?

NPB Restores Ecology By:

Why & How NPB is different than other technologies?

Measurable & visible results of NPB Applications can be observed in less than 3 weeks time. Whether it’s decomposition of Organic matter, conversion of wasteland in to fertile land, balancing of soil pH, soil or air borne fungal attack or control of virus in some crops, it takes only 2-3 weeks time. Generally, all such problems cannot be addressed fully or effected crops cannot be recovered by conventional methods or it can be addressed in such a short time.

Any ecology can be balanced by inducing following actions:

  • pH balancing
  • Prebiotics availability
  • Probiotics applications
  • Bioavailability of nutrients
  • Essential organic acids, enzymes & metabolites

NPB technology creates a synergy with Natural Forces. First, it balance soil pH to thwart growth of gram negative microbe & at the same time, it provides Prebiotics & Probiotics to enhance local gram positive microbial colonies. Every ecology has its own microbial profile, based on the nutrient availability & environment. These local microbes are most capable of managing nutrient cycling. Nutrient cycling involves availability of macro & micro nutrition, availability of trace elements, dominance of Gram +ve microbes, presence of metabolites, natural enzymes & amino acids etc. NPB creates an environment, where local microbes get a lead to perform. Thus, preventing alien or foreign microbes to get activated and promoting an environment-friendly ecology. E.g. it promotes the growth of local azatobactor family microbe (generally, 8-12 strains are available) & fixes atmospheric nitrogen for crop growth.

Nitrogen (N) promotes vegetative growth, but when associated with Sulfur (S), it balances Vegetative Growth : Vegetative and Reproductive growth. In absence of such a balance, yield & nutrient values of produce get affected. NPB Technology ensures balancing of Vegetative Growth : Vegetative and Reproductive growth. At the same time, it also ensures bioavailability of nutrients (macro, micro & trace) along with metabolites, natural enzymes & amino acids etc to enhance immunity towards biotic & abiotic stress.

NPB’s revolutionary NPB Secondary Culture (NPB-SC) method makes it happen. SC multiplies NPB & gram+ve local microbial colonies up to 1000 times and dominates the local ecology with gram+ve colonies. Thus, suppressing the pest & other gram-ve colonies & enhances health of local ecology. This leads to sudden change in soil pH, increase in humus, decomposition of organic matter, production of natural enzymes & amino acids, bio-availability of minerals & nutrition etc. All such simultaneous activities bring in ‘Ecological Balance’ in less than 3 weeks time.

NPB could address following problems effectively, in near past.

  • Viral attacks in crops such as Papaya,Green Peppers,Tomatoes,water melons etc
  • Fungal attacks such as Aflatoxin in peanuts and Black Sigatoka in bananas and plantains.
  • Sucking pests including mites,aphids,whiteflies and others
  • Nematodes for root crops
  • Bacterial such as blight. IEC Group scientists is working on a protocol for Citrus Greening.
  • Poor and Saline soils challenges
  • Poor Yields
  • Poor product consistency in size
  • Providing a sustainable,cost effective and a revolutionary and visionary agriculture approach

High Quality Composting

  • Rapid breakdown and stability of organic matter ( 2 to 3 weeks)
  • Use of diverse feed stocks such as farm and harvest waste, food waste, animal manure.

Improving Soil Fertility

  • Adjust Soil pH Between 6.5-7.5.
  • Convert Soil Bound Organic Waste In To Micronutrients.
  • Reduces Salinity & Weeds.
  • Increases Porosity.
  • Controls Pest By Changing Environment

Seed Treatment

  • Increase in germination rate in excess of 90%.

Micronutrients Supply

  • Crop and soil specific micronutrients improve plant immunity and yield.

Salinity Control

  • Amino acids & Short chain fatty acids produced by NPB Technology chelate with salts. These chelated salts will be utilized for crop & local microbial growth, which increase porosity around root zone. Mineral part of salt can be utilized for the growth of microbial strata & microbial population, through mineralization.

Pest Management

  • Combination of foliar and irrigation treatments with microbial and phytochemicals-based treatments control the pathogen vectors and also neutralize the pathogens.

Compelling Economics

  • NPB Treatments on average cost up to 30% less than conventional chemicals-based inputs.
  • Save on water resources up to 40% and labor cost for de-weeding up to 50%
  • Consistent increase in crop yields
