Sustainable agriculture’s main aim is to optimise locally available natural resources without negatively affecting the resource base. Social integrity is also a priority.
Nitrogen is a vital nutrient for healthy soils and healthy people. To feed its growing population in 2050, Sub-Saharan Africa will need to at least double its nitrogen inputs. Where will this nitrogen come from?
Africa will be able to feed itself in the next 15 years. Helped by other breakthroughs in health, mobile banking and education will improve the lives of people in poor countries
A practical, natural solution is being developed, using a bacteria (isolated from sugarcane) to fix nitrogen to the roots of plants.
Since we reported on the 2015 report, the biobased industry now contributes 4.2 million jobs and $393 billion to US economy. Each job in the US bioeconomy adds 1.76 jobs in adjacent sectors. In Africa, we can expect an even higher job creation rate (See: GreenEnergyPark™ biorefinery).
