Beneficial microbes are the answer to Environmental Stress due to climate change

More than 1.5 Billion hectares – around 12 percent of the world’s land area – are used for crop production. Although there are large amounts of land that are potentially suitable for agriculture, most of it is covered by forests and protected for environmental reasons or are part of urban areas. Currently, there is almost no available land for agricultural expansion Southern Asia, Western Asia, and North Africa.

Agriculture is also affected by climate change in a number of ways, through changes in rainfall, average temperatures, changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide and ground-level ozone concentrations, and climate extremes. Future climate change effects in northern latitudes may be positive or negative, but will likely negatively affect crop production in low/mid-latitude countries. The mid-latitudes are broadly defined as the areas between the tropics and 60 degrees north and south. The principal agricultural producers in this region include all of the United States, China, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and agriculturally significant regions of Australia and India.

With the incapability of agricultural expansion due to land constraints and the probable decrease in crop production due to future climate change, what can be done to ensure that the crop production meets the demand of the ever-growing population and to change the fact that more than 11 percent of the world population is undernourished? I think it would be easier to answer the question of what should not be done.

What shouldn’t be done is pollute our existing soil and groundwater reserves with chemical fertilizers that are made from our already depleting supply of fossil fuels. Chemical fertilizers may grow plants but they do nothing to sustain the soil. Most packages do not include the decaying matter necessary to improve soil structure or replace the many trace elements that gradually deplete by repeated crop plantings, which will result in long-term damage to the soil. The toxic build-up of harmful chemicals can eventually make their way into the food we eat.

This is the reason for the huge change to BioFertilizers. The Global BioFertilizer market is growing at a CAGR of 13.6% and the market will reach a size of USD 1.76 Billion in the next 4 years. BioFertilizer products are broken down into three main sub-segments: Nitrogen fixing, Phosphate solubilizing, and Potash mobilizing.

Organic farming is mostly dependent on the microflora of the soil which comprises of useful fungi and bacteria. BioFertilizers ensure richness of macro and micro nutrients in the soil via nitrogen fixation, phosphate and potassium mineralization, production of antibiotics, the release of plant growth regulating substances, and biodegradation of organic matter in the soil. They multiply and participate in nutrient cycling and benefit crop productivity. Unlike chemical fertilizers, over time BioFertilizers will make your soil and plants healthy and strong. And also organic fertilizers are renewable, sustainable, and environment-friendly.

Companies like Lallemand Inc., Camson Biotechnologies, Rizobacter Argentina S.A, Novozymes A/S, Nutramax Laboratories, Symborg S.L, and AgriLife have extensive product pipeline of Biofertilizers. There are over 30,000 prokaryotic species that improve plant productivity. Scientists are trying to better understand the significance of each individual species and how they contribute to the ecosystem. These companies are constantly innovating their products to keep with the research being done to make sure we don’t disrupt the ecosystem so it can continue to exist in harmony.
