“The birthright of all living things is health. This law is true for soil, plant, animal and man: the health of these four
is one connected chain. Any weakness or defect in the health of the earlier link is passed on to the next succeeding
link, until it reaches the last, namely the Humans. - Sir Albert Howard 1945.”
The Science of Agriculture is based on nature. Along with air to breath and water to drink, soil is one of our most important natural resources. Soil isn’t just
important because it is the source of our food, it also plays a vital role in regulating the climate, providing clean
drinking water and supporting plant and animal biodiversity. But over exploitation of vegetation and soil resources,
together with inappropriate farming systems has resulted in land degradation, soil erosion, nutrient depletion and
accelerated soil acidification, salinisation and desertification. Today our farmers face new questions everyday as
farming becomes more difficult.
Farmers thought most of the problems in farming can be dealt with external inputs. They react after seeing a problem.
If the soil is nutrient deficient – Apply fertilisers
If the soil is compacted - Use Implements
If the soil does not store water – Irrigate
If there is a pest attack - Apply pesticide
All the above problems are interrelated and symptoms of a deeper underlying problem called SOIL FERTILITY. Soil plays vital role in the earth eco system. Without soil fertility, management of sustainable agriculture is impossible. Soil fertility is the foundation of sustainable agriculture. The significant role of soil in food production is widely recognised, but the contribution of soil to food security and nutrition are relatively less considered. Feeding a ever growing population is a major challenge. With our Active Humic Technology (AHT) products, Now it's time for a new revolution in Agriculture – A Brown Revolution to rejunivate our soil and feed our generations to come and to make Agriculture truly sustainable.
Throughout our human history, our relationship with soil has affected our ability to do farming. Either, it influenced prosperity or destroyed civilisations. This relationship affirms soil as the foundation for agriculture and for our farmer's prosperity. Our modern practices have led to a decline in soil carbon to 0.3 to 0.4% when it should ideally be 1 to 1.5% .This is not sustainable. As the demand for food increases, keeping our soils healthy is of paramount importance. We at Suma Agro bring back soil fertility and help farmers to produce more food and keep the soil healthy for generations to come. Enhancing sustainable food production through improved soil health should involve every player in agriculture to support products that can rejuvenate soil heath organically.
AHT combines the power of raw materials, knowledge process and application to manufacture the most cost effective advanced biologically active humic delivery system available today. Through this approach, we are able to extract organic carbon from natural source in India. Organic carbon inputs are now recognised as the single most productive input in Agriculture. Our product reduce the need for fertilisers, buffers the pH of soil, increases nutrient uptake and builds a eco system for farmers, soils and plants and supports sustainable initiatives in agriculture which includes environmentally responsible soil fertility process thus making agriculture sustainable.
