Beyond organic farming, the evidence of a market trend caused by a global need
Quality, innovation, productivity, savings and social and environmental commitment.12Reasons to change
Changing the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers to Futureco Bioscience biopesticides, biostimulants and other products for plant nutrition and protection provides a number of short, medium and long term benefits to the region where farmers operate, namely in crop production, the environment and the society.
Local and global authorities and administrations, including FAO, WHOO and governments such as the European Commission, are joining forces to disseminate and regulate the use of clean products to promote ecologically sustainable agricultural practices as they also improve crop quality and food availability. The use of agricultural products is not only reduced to their application in organic farming, but also responds to a real global demand and the tendency of the market.
Plant protection and nutrition products based on biological organisms and extracts are as or even more effective than conventional chemicals because companies, which develop them, have to adapt to the common, very stringent regulations for permission to commercialize them, while also assuring that the products are environment friendly at the same time.
The use of Futureco Bioscience products does not produce debris to impoverish the soil but rather enriches it and additionally, the products are biodegradable. These agro-biological products improve the plants' health and the environment in which they grow, promoting healthy crop fields, which positively effects the harvest rather than causing erosion or the exploitation of the ground provoking losses in quality.
All Futureco Bioscience products are extracted from natural sources, reaching from genetically unmodified microorganisms to plants that are present in conventional crop fields. Therefore, there is no risk of them crossing with endemic species of the fields, which is sometimes considered a problem in case of biopesticides.
Futureco Bioscience has undergone rigorous scientific testing conducted by independent laboratories which certify that its products are not toxic to beneficial insects such as bees. This helps to maintain the balance and quality of the crops environment, preventing insect pests and plant pathogens while preserving the environment.
Products such as bioestimulants or activators of natural plant defenses cause crop health, productivity and quality, preparing the crop to use better its own natural resources and preserving its properties and balance as well as becoming more resistant to abiotic stress generated by dramatic circumstances such as climate change.
Futureco Bioscience biological products enhance productivity and crop health on medium and long term, reverting to lower losses and higher income for farmers. Additionally, an increase in the quality of their products is observed, allowing the sale at higher prices due to higher crop quality.
Futureco Bioscience biological products improve the quality of crops in both an ecological and an economical aspect. Our products also have a positive impact on quality preservation and conservation of crop properties during storage, giving farmers more time to choose the best moment to sell their crops at competitive prices.
Biological products, unlike chemical products, take less time to degrade and are non toxic. These characteristics help to prevent erosion and loss of soil quality and also to avoid the acquisition of additional products to compensate the erosion and adverse effects of chemicals.
Futureco Bioscience biological products make agricultural activities more efficient and improve post-harvest storage by helping to reduce waste throughout the food chain. Less waste means lower costs, which ultimately benefits the consumer who can acquire high quality food at lower costs.
Companies such as Futureco Bioscience, which are involved in the development of plant nutrition and protection products, devote a lot of effort and investment in R&D&I to certify that their products work and are competitive. In addition, they also invest in on-going collaborations with government, universities, associations and foundations to generate a change in agriculture to a more innovative and environment friendly model.
The use of these products is synonymous with quality and innovation, which gives the farmers an advantage over their competitors in the market while practicing the newest form of agriculture and offering higher quality products.
The use of these products is not limited to organic farming or biological agriculture, but it responds to an emerging demand from the authorities and administrations to develop clean solutions for global agriculture with less environmental impact.
