There are natural alternatives to chemical additives in agriculture. Not only can they increase the yield per hectare, but they can also protect plants from pathogens and pests.
Modern Ecological Agriculture
Cultivating plants in agriculture today poses particularly high requirements. Limited usable lands, some of them in unfavourable climate conditions, are being used to supply for more and more people. Due to the ever-soaring economic demands, the ecological and health aspects are often neglected in farming activities. The use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, as well as an extremely high water-consumption, are typical in modern agriculture, of course, with severe consequences for consumers and the environment.
Pilot projects and long-term studies have proven that Rhamnolipid could contribute to strengthening the plant immune system and achieving better yields. Over-fertilised and exhausted soils could be recultivated in the shortest time and the chemicals used could be reduced by up to 95%.
