The 2050 challenge requires the world to feed 9 to 10 billion people without compromising the needs of future generations. At SOP, we believe the only way to achieve this goal is through Sustainable Intensive Agriculture.
Founded in 2001 by Marco Poggianella, the Italian company SOP - Save Our Planet places both environmental protection and farmer economics at the center of all its activities. Thanks to the proprietary technology developed by SOP’s founder, the company has developed farmer oriented solutions that could enable faster climate policies.
Its products for crop systems and livestock operations interact with the microbial and biological activity of soils, plants, and animals and enable stable and consistent yields while reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.
SOP solutions include products:
• for CROPS, which help farmers reduce the use of synthetic fertilizers, lowering inputs costs and mitigating the environmental impact of intensive cultivation of staple crops, including corn, wheat, soy, rice, alfalfa, and cover crops;
• for ANIMALS, which enhance overall health, improve feed conversion efficiency, and reduces costs of operations, while improving the production of milk, meat, and eggs;
• for WASTE MANAGEMENT, which reduce odors, ammonia emissions, and greenhouse gases, while mitigating the impact livestock waste on the environment and the surrounding communities.
The efficacy of the products has been established through scientific studies conducted by several of universities, including UC Davis, Cornell, University of Milan, Guelph, and the University of Piacenza.
SOP LAGOON, the product for manure lagoon management, was studied for its ability to reduce ammonia and GHG emissions from dairy liquid manure. The results of this study were published in September 2019 in the international peer reviewed journal called “Sustainability.”
SOP products are currently distributed in North America and Europe, enabling farmers to achieve sustainability within intensive agriculture across economic, environmental and social impacts.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure peace and prosperity everywhere.
