The healthy and natural microbial formulations used in SGB System can effectively replace chemical complex and are used in modern industry for skin care, probiotics, home and professional cleaning. In agriculture these formulations are already applied in water, soil and treatments that restore soil balance providing more nutrients, maximizing the yield and avoiding the use of chemical product.
Unfortunately chemical pesticides are one of the main treatments usually applied to fight pathogens and bacteria. They are commonly used even if potentially very dangerous for our soil and fields. Since intensive agriculture has been applied on large scale, man has poured huge quantity of inorganic chemical fertilizers into the soil to cheaply produce enough food.
Now we are starting to realize how much this has destroyed natural nutrients and mineral cycles, exhausting our soils and reducing plants resistance to pathogens. The more the soil is exhausted, the more we get addicted to expensive oil fertilizers. Soil and lands are becoming unproductive and, to many communities, agriculture is now economically and environmentally unsustainable.
Invasive agriculture systematically overworks our natural heritage and the abuse of traditional chemical treatments has jeopardized the entire world ecosystem.
What we need now is a new kind of investment for our most important resource: soil.
