Identification

There are estimated to be used 3,5 billion tonnes of pesticides in the year 2020. While pesticides are useful for crop volume, it has significant drawbacks and consequences for the environment in the form of health hazards, pollution and affecting the ecosystem. More and more pesticides are being banned, and farmers need a viable solution for treating their fields. The solution uses patented steam technology which acts as an alternative to pesticides for the farmer. The solution has proved very efficient in eliminating weeds and seeds residing in soil, allowing crop seeds/plants better growth conditions by reduced vegetative competitors. This results in up to 70% increased yield. Many vegetables can also be stored much longer. Sooilprep2020 reduces food waste and pesticides runoffs, increase storage time and yield while also being economically viable for the farmer from year 1. The Soilprep2020 treatment is effective for up to 5 years.
