Human Health Starts With Soil Health:
International Year of Plant Health (IYPH)
At Madumbi, we view soil health as the foundation of sustainable agriculture.
Soil and root health are essential for the production of healthy, nutrient-dense food, healthy people, animals and the environment. A well-balanced soil, together with a healthy root system, resulting in a stronger plant which is naturally more resistant to various pests and disease.
Madumbi training and crop-specific discussions typically start with the Sustainability Pyramid placing soil health clearly at the base of all successful crops. This simple illustration summarises our approach to sustainable agriculture, clearly highlighting where we believe the focus and priorities should lie.
- Healthy soils are fundamental and essential to healthy plants.
- Healthy plants are stronger and more resistant to pests and diseases.
- Ultimately (and ideally) resulting in less pest pressure requiring less intervention.
Madumbi aims to change the way we grow food. We believe in a holistic approach to agriculture, providing integrated solutions from seed to fork.
2020 has been declared the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH) by the United Nations, FAO (Food & Agriculture Organisation).
Plant Health is underpinned by soil health/Soil Health and Plant Health are co-dependent.
‘Backed by Science, Loved by Nature’ – over the past 15 years our team have tailored and refined the Madumbi Root Health Program. This program consists of four products, which when used in combination ensure soil health is at its best at the time of planting as well as for the duration of the crop cycle.
Soil Health and The Madumbi Root Health Program will form a vital component of all Madumbi communications during 2020 – the International Year of Plant Health.
