Nitrogen and Phosphate are quintessential for the production of crops around the world. When applied in the right quantities, they are fully absorbed by the crops. However, with excess application, it can be extremely harmful to the environment such as leaching into groundwater and running off into surface water. Unless there are specific steps taken to deal with this, most businesses will have to suffer through this. It will affect the quality of the crop and also harm the environment.
By following certain best practices, we reduce such incidences by increasing the nutrient accessibility as well as increasing the ability of the plants to absorb the nutrients.
We also recognize that we are responsible for the upkeep of our employees as well as their families. For their dedicated time, effort and energy, the least we could do is provide them with an environment that is safe and assure them that at no point would we compromise their safety. By adhering to safety rules and managing all kinds of risks involved, we aim to achieve a zero-accident rate.
