Business Development

AGRORGANIC regularly visits countries that offer opportunities for the development of sustainable agricultural and horticultural businesses. Countries that, due to their geographical location, are very suitable for the production of certain crops, but which for various reasons cannot connect with the (international) markets. Poor business operations, outdated infrastructure, lost knowledge, and / or political issues are examples of reasons why products are no longer grown where it was originally most suitable. Experience shows that this "exploration phase" is very important, as well as a thorough understanding of the history and culture of a country. Over the years, close partnerships have been created in various Central and Southern European countries. Thereafter, company visits are an essential part of our work. Potential business partners are visited on location, after which it is explore whether the corporate philosophy of these companies matches that of AGRORGANIC. Subsequently, a long lasting relationship is established with the aim of jointly producing high-quality, organic produced foods.

 


Agriculture and Solar energy

Agriculture has always been in the solar energy sector. Plants use sun to produce carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Livestock also uses the solar energy stored in plants to produce meat in addition to its use for animal metabolism. Annual crops are usually used for the production of animal feed, and these crops require plenty of sunshine. Crops such as corn, soy, etc. thrive on large, flat plots that are exposed to a lot of sunlight. However, half-shade or full shade is often sufficient for the production of perennial crops. After all, not every food-producing crop needs the same intensity of light. Nature is geared to provide perennial crops such as they used to occur in a natural environment, all with sufficient sunlight. The arrival of solar parks limits the cultivation of annual crops, but offers opportunities for the development of multi-annual crops with a high nutritional value, intended for direct human consumption. Both in the current energy transition and in the agricultural transition, we strive for independence from fossil fuels. By combining solar parks with agriculture, we create a clean form of energy and we produce more high-quality food.


Transition

AGRORGANIC supports agricultural companies in the transition from a regular/conventional to a sustainable, organic production system. A production system that establishes a healthy relationship with our environment and increases biodiversity. Food, but also all residues that are involved in the production of food, must therefore again become part of a circular system. With respect for the past and the available resources, a transition plan is made that fits in with the local and/or international markets. Many European countries with old agricultural traditions have an enormous potential for beautiful, high quality agricultural and horticultural products that were originally produced sustainably and in an organic, circular agricultural system. With the introduction of fertilizers and pesticides, a lot of authenticity in taste and quality has been lost. In addition, the negative impact on our health is great and the production of fertilizers depends too much on fossil fuels and increases CO2 emissions in a disproportionate way. AGRORGANIC offers solutions for a transition to a more ecological and economic production model. 



Emission Reduction

AGRORGANIC is happy to contribute to the reduction of emissions of harmful gases and CO2 in livestock farming. By using BIPLANTOL, emissions released from the manure such as ammonia and hydrogen sulphide, but also CO2, are retained. Ammonia is offered to the soil as absorbable Nitrogen and then slowly made available to the crop. The soil is first supplied with nutrients, and only then the crops. This "slow release" is essential and, in contrast to artificial fertilizer, provides a natural way of supplying nutrients while preserving the organic, circular character of livestock farming. As an indispensable element for the crop, CO2 is captured in the soil and converted into oxygen. The use of BIPLANTOL makes manure a valuable product again.



Education          

AGRORGANIC provides lectures on food production / agricultural production systems in relation to health issues. Today, this relationship is fortunately seen again by many people. During the "green revolution" in the second half of the last century, the agricultural production system has changed considerably. In order to achieve higher food production, and the increased demand for more accessible and non-seasonal food, more and more use has been made of fertilizers, disease control agents and food additives. The influence of this on public health and to the environment however, is undeniable and cannot be ignored. Many contemporary health problems are therefore due to the way food is produced and processed. During the lectures, a link is made between food production, symptom development, illness / health and environmental factors.
