The next time you buy the ‘Big Three’—corn, soybean, and wheat—spare a thought for the soil that grew them. There is no denying that soil plays a crucial role—not just in producing grains—but in maintaining our health; this makes it our responsibility to ensure and sustain the health of our soil.
However, with governments and agri businesses heading toward the holy grail of maximum yields, the notion of “soil health” is often overlooked. The pursuit for greater productivity using various chemical fertilizers, NPK in particular, without identifying and rectifying the underlying issue can destroy the soil, threatening the health of our crops and our global food source.
That’s where humics-based plant nutrition product manufacturer, Monty’s Plant Food, makes a world of difference.
