Sustainable agriculture is being aware of the interactions that already exist in nature and using them for the benefit of crop production, while at the same time preserving the integrity of the environment. This is important for the long-term success of farming.
One of the biggest ways that people influence their environment is through agriculture. To grow crops, we will remove what already exists on land and replace it; to raise livestock, we will remove animals from their natural environment to grow and breed them in artificial homes. Our ability to alter our habitat on such a large scale is an incredible privilege, but it is also in our best interest to learn how our surroundings will react to these changes as well.
Thank you for visiting Growing Possibilities, a blog hosted by XiteBio Technologies Inc. XiteBio® is an agricultural biotechnology company engaged in developing eco-friendly products for sustainable agriculture. As such we have a keen interest in learning sustainable farming or the environmental effects of agriculture. The world is filled with an infinite variety of life and from the smallest microbe to the largest animal, each species lives and acts in a unique way. At the same time, because everything lives together, one form of life is capable of having an impact, negative or positive, on another.
Here at XiteBio Technologies, we enjoy learning about these new discoveries and sharing this information with you in the hopes that we can instigate some thought provoking interactions. And if you have something you’d like to share with us about a particular topic, any topic, we invite you to do so. We look forward to interacting with you.
