I think that more people should follow this. That more people that farm should use organic methods.  Organic growing is better because when modifified it means we are tempering with nature and that doesn't sound right. Thye people of Nepal have lower cost for healthcare because they dont use pesticides. We should follow the footsteps of Nepal and f=grow things organically.-Amanda

Monsanto Going Green: Using Bacteria and Fungi to Increase Crop Yields and Lower Inputs | Big Picture Agriculture

Monsanto Going Green: Using Bacteria and Fungi to Increase Crop Yields and Lower Inputs | Big Picture Agriculture | Actualité médias par Amandine Pohardy | Scoop.it

BioAg Alliance, they are calling it, a venture to use microbes and fungi to enhance crop growth and yield, help with pest resistance, and reduce inputs like water. Monsanto paid Novozymes $300 million to partner in this “game changing” venture. Monsanto will do marketing and field testing. Novozymes will do the manufacturing.

 

Today, the headlines are everywhere about this announcement, but the articles all say the same basic, vague things. Here at B.P.A. let’s learn more.

 

First of all, this will rock the world of agribusiness stereotypes. People conjure up their own images of the company Monsanto, that goes without saying. Certainly, my own impression of the Danish company Novozymes is not so green, as I’ve seen the massive building which abuts the Missouri River in Blair, Nebraska, that turns out the enzymes used for ethanol production and sits next to Cargill’s massive corn processing plant, and I know what the park-like setting looked like before this industrial complex was there.

 

My initial reaction to this announcement is that this venture has enormous potential, is, as they are saying, a game changer, and, it is also very green. I suspect, also, that Monsanto doesn’t want to be left out of a future where the cost-competitive advantages of more sustainable production methods using fewer expensive inputs could take off. Using biologicals to enhance yields instead of chemicals has the potential to be a game changer that could help lower the input costs for farmers. Let’s hope.

Anhony DeSimone's curator insight, December 19, 2013 12:00 AM

With granting $13 million the USAID hopes to generate entrepreneurship that can help solve an on going crisis. They think if they can start up new way to grow food they can change the food and crop growing industry for the better. This will change the way that food is grown,sold, and the cost of food for the better.
