Biological seed treatment consists of a wide range of products with active ingredients which include microbes like bacteria and fungi, plant extracts, fermentation products, algae extracts, phytohormones.
Rice is a staple food for millions of people in Bangladesh. With an agricultural economy based on rice production, it is vital to improve rice yield and quality. One of the ways to achieve this is through biological products for rice seed treatment. In this article, we will explore the benefits of using biological products, [...]
Composting is the process of transforming organic waste materials such as food scraps, yard waste, and agricultural waste into nutrient-rich compost. This process can greatly benefit crops, as the resulting compost can provide valuable nutrients and improve soil structure. Here are four reasons why composting can lead to healthier crops. 1. Improved Soil Structure Compost [...]
Cotton is one of the most important crops worldwide, but its production is facing numerous challenges, including environmental concerns and the development of pest and disease resistance. As such, there is a growing interest in finding sustainable solutions for cotton farming. One promising approach is the use of microbiome products that can enhance plant growth, [...]
Rice is the most consumed staple food in Asia. As the world population increases, so does food demand. The least expensive way to keep up with population growth is to increase rice output wherever possible. The difference between current and potential yields is still very substantial in many rice-producing nations. Consequently, efforts should be directed towards determining the root causes of this difference, particularly in the production variables and various aspects of crop management.
Looking at the side effects of pesticides, how can farmers protect their crops from unwanted pests and weeds?
Cotton farmers can take a holistic approach to crop protection by looking for sustainable options that are better for farm workers, the farming community, and the environment.
With the increased requirement for food supply, biostimulants have become one of the most commonly used stimulants in the agriculture industry. With their recent popularity, traditional stimulants such as fertilizers and pesticides can be easily replaced due to the biostimulant’s unique method of influencing growth and development in more than one way. Compared to traditional fertilizers, Biostimulants offer much more potential growth by improving yields and crop quality.
The agriculture sector has been facing significant challenges of low productivity in plants due to human activities. As the world’s population grows, requirements for food also increase exponentially. Still, the pressure of climate change, water and wind erosion, salinity, loss of organic matter, environmental pollution, disease-spreading pests and abiotic stress has led to the loss of crop productivity. Biostimulants’ are novel approaches that focus on stimulating plant nutrition processes by improving one or more of the characteristics of the plant, such as nutrient use efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, quality traits, availability of confined nutrients in the soil.
In recent years, the modern agriculture system is facing the dual challenge of meeting food security goals due to the growing world population and the increasing demand for sustainable processes. More precisely, on one hand, it is expected to use efficient agricultural solutions that can boost productivity, which in turn, can meet the growing food demand. On the other hand, agriculture should be eco-friendly and follow farming practices that protect human health and the environment.
To accommodate growing food demand due to the ever-increasing population worldwide, agricultural systems have adopted various unsustainable practices to obtain higher yields. It includes the extensive use of chemicals. As a result, multiple global issues have emerged such as climate change, soil degradation, soil erosion, water and soil pollution and loss of biodiversity. Organic farming has emerged as a great alternative that can help in meeting sustainable agriculture and food security goals.
