Over the years of intensive farming and gardening our soil has deteriorated and all soil organic carbon has been released in the environment as CO2 and SH4. In the year 2008 Punjab Agriculture University published a report on soil health condition where it was mentioned that NPK use efficiency has reduced to 20%. Every Kg. of NPK produced 80 Kg grains in the year 1966-67 has declined to 18 Kg by the year 2003. One third of India’s agriculture land is under stress and food produced is not fit for human consumption. Further it has been well reported that organic carbon and soluble silica has depleted in our soil and majority of the rising diseases such as cancer, diabetes, weak skin and bones and loss of immunity against bacteria and virus are directly related to quality of food.
Global warming is really leading to climate change. The release of greenhouse gases is the cause of global warming. As we talk of pollution, we consider fossil fuels, paddy straw burning and industrial effluent to be the major cause. All this pollution is visible and what we do not see is never considered as pollution.
Methane emission is one such pollutant which is released in the environment during decomposition of biomass. Methane is 27 times more polluting as compared to carbon dioxide. If we tap this methane to replace fossil fuel there will not only be reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, but it will also benefit the nation.
Now it is time to work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate climate change.
Clean air – Better life
This technology is environment friendly, commercially viable and socially responsible. When we process paddy straw, we prevent its burning hence reduce pollution. During processing we produce CBG hence replace fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emission. The manure that is produced does not releases gases and reduces use of chemicals in farming. Organic carbon is going back in the soil there by reducing CO2 from the environment. This manure also has the property to reduce other organic pollutants from the air. If SOIMIX is used for farming, gardening and flowerpots, the air quality can be improved for the benefit of public. Most important factor is carbon neutral farming that will help in climate change mitigation.
Your care can give clean air and better life
Your care for the environment and participation in reviving our soil will help in cleaning the air. For sustainable agriculture it is essential to adopt good agriculture practices. All biomass during decomposing releases greenhouse gases. While using any biomass as manure we are polluting the environment. These days extensive antibiotics and drugs are used in diary farming for productivity which leads to cow dung being contaminated with pathogens. Using manure which is not free from pathogens we are spreading diseases and there is loss of immunity in our body. Rising greenhouse gas is also directly responsible of many diseases.
For better and healthy life, we need clean air. We all need to join hands to clean our environment. We must act now for our next generation to live healthy life.
