Fermentation in agriculture, '' Rocket science'' for your crops!

Fermentation in agriculture, '' Rocket science'' for your crops!

Fermentation is a key process in agriculture, where it has long been used to:

- The production of organic fertilizers such as biostimulants. These fertilizers are much more sustainable than chemical fertilizers and have a positive effect on soil and crop health.

- The production of natural biopesticides and insecticides, to avoid the need for heavy chemical or synthetic products.

The history of fermentation goes back thousands of years, when humans began to store food to survive periods of famine. Since then, and thanks to advances in science, various forms of fermentation have been developed.

What are the different types of fermentation and their uses?

Is fermentation only used to brew beer?

How has this traditional technique evolved into a cutting-edge one? And how Biosun solutions uses fermentation to develop innovative, environmentally-friendly biostimulants?

The principle of precision fermentation is simple:

In nature or in the laboratory, a micro-organism, like any living thing, eats to grow and increase its population.

It also produces molecules to adapt to its environment, stock up on food or defend itself against other micro-organisms.

Antibiotics are a good illustration of this last point.

The redundancy of fertilizers available on the market is a limiting factor for many growers seeking to improve crops while being certain that they will be able to exploit their plots of land for generations to come, hashtag#plantiful is an ultra-efficient solution proven by multiple research studies.

Agriculture is as complex a science as fermentation, what an exceptional partnership:)
