ESCALON, Calif., July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the demand for food increases with population growth, producing higher yields has become central to conventional agriculture. While farmers may avoid changing their crop management practices for fear of not keeping up with the high demand, California-based Water Right Technologies (www.wrtag.com) is creating customized crop management programs for farmers which boost both yield and quality, naturally.
A July 2013 article published by the Worldwatch Institute explains that while quotas may be met through conventional methods, there has been a drastic decline in the nutritional quality of the crops being produced. Plants that have been cultivated for higher yields lack the energy for deep root growth and nutrient absorption, making them considerably weak.
Water Right Technology aids farmers in rebuilding the quality of their soil. As the fundamental aspect of healthy crop growth, soil quality is most negatively affected by regimented chemical inputs. WRT's process begins with a full-spectrum analysis of the current state of soil conducted on the farm in question. The process goes even further by including samples of the water that is being used for irrigation, which is then mixed with collected soil samples. Without realizing, a farmer may conduct their own soil testing but not account for salts or bicarbonates that are present in the irrigation water being used. Crop management programs are then customized based off of the acquired results, and are fitted to improve upon preexisting practices. WRT utilizes the best natural soil amendment products on the market to restore nutrients and microbial communities into the earth.
Backed by more than 40 years of applied agriculture experience WRT has tested many natural soil amendment products, and the two companies they distribute for deliver the most impressive and consistent results when used together. Baicor and Bio S.I. Technology manufacture an extensive line of organic soil amendments to meet the needs of any farmer, and WRT will educate their clients specifically on how each should be used. There have even been cases where farmers have experienced considerably better yields after the complete replacement of chemical inputs with these two brands, and proper implementation. WRT is working to change the way farmers think about producing quality over quantity.
