Identification

Geolife Programs are totally natural solutions, to be used once a year at the beginning of the agricultural season, by which the soil microbiology can grow rapidly, in a couple of weeks, and immediately transforming and providing nutritional elements to crops.

Already in a 1999 PNAS article, Charles Frink indicated that - The rising fertilizer use accompanying more people eating more has been called exponential and prompted fears of polluted water and consequent methemoglobinemia and hypoxia. It also has raised alarm about greenhouse warming and an altered global N cycle and thus primary production and diversity of vegetation. The use of chemical fertilizers is still a necessity, however, for the chemical form those fertilizers have, they are also biocidal agents, thus killing the very element in soil, microorganisms, that can transform them into elements immediately absorbable by the crops. The destruction of these beneficial microorganisms also creates the condition for pathogens to grow out of control in the soil, increasing the need for polluting phytoprotective products. All this has a direct impact on productivity and quality as the entire feeding chain of crops is affected. Bioma has developed new totally natural solutions, to be used once a year at the beginning of the agricultural season, by which the soil microbiology can grow rapidly, in a couple of weeks, and immediately transforming and providing nutritional elements to crops. The solutions were demonstrated in several studies that using Geolife products allow to cut chemical fertilizers by at least 50% while increasing the quality and quantity of production. The theory behind the solution is that, when there is a balanced microbiology in soil transforming the elements, then 50% of fertilizers’ doses are sufficient.
