A combination of techniques, equipment, microbes, aqueous and gaseous components, pest management, crop rotation, fertilization and/or irrigation as determined by the location- which relies on soils for sustenance for livelihood.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt 1935
Soils are the source of most of the antibiotics used to fight human diseases, control the movement of water and chemical substances between the Earth and atmosphere, and act as source and storage media for gases such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, and methane. As a result of their essential importance, soils are also part of our cultural heritage. Furthermore, soils serve as major storage media for carbon, a role that is potentially exploitable in climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. Thus, as the Earth’s population grows, we need a better understanding of soil ecosystems that will continue to play a critical role in supporting societies around the world.
Our agricultural practices use natural and manufactured fertilizers instead of toxic chemical fertilizers. Our use of green pesticides and preventative pest management has shown a positive impact on crops, the soil they grow in, and the health of both farmers and consumers. These methods produce safe and clean crops by lowering the pollution and accumulation of harmful elements. Soil enrichment projects help stop the continuous deterioration of bioavailability while storing Greenhouse Gases. C.A.P. Syndicate promotes understanding and implementation of Bio-Farming as we believe it is crucial for the development of ways to lower climate-related risks.
Terrestrial carbon is organic and inorganic carbon stored in the soil, living and dead forms of biomass included. Carbon in the atmosphere comes from natural sources and anthropogenic sources. Natural sources being decayed animal and plant life, volcanoes, natural brush, forest fires, respiration of plants and animals, methane from digestive systems and permafrost. Anthropogenic sources are vehicles, power plants, cement plants and man-made industrial plants etc. Terrestrial carbon has three major carbon pools: land, ocean and atmosphere.
The ability of soils to store carbon and support vegetation is highly dependent on management practices. Biopharming is an ideal use for carbon storage on land with intensive cultivation/croplands, since they have been depleted of carbon in most areas. No-till dramatically reduces field erosion and CO2 emissions (as any disturbance can release a substantial amount of carbon). No-till also has the potential to increase soil carbon by storing organic matter. It is estimated that 78 billion tonnes of carbon that was trapped in the soil have been released because of tillage. Multiple cover crops and Hemp can uptake carbon at a faster rate than trees and have the ability to be harvested and replanted more frequently. Cover crops also help control weeds and increase nutrients in the soil.
Biopharming increases the quality and therapeutic consistency of Botanical Raw Materials (BRM), which are a starting point for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API). It is necessary for Investigational New Drug developers to establish large growing regions with three or more cultivation sites or farms for BRMs following the principles of Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP). This is to reduce the likelihood of an insufficient supply of the botanical raw material post-approval. By mixing our agricultural practices with GACP, we can expand depleting supply chains and become less dependent on importing APIs, especially with current and unknown climate-related risks.
Climate-related risks can have slow impacts or sudden impacts that are created by a range of hazards. Take the changes in temperature or precipitation for an example of slow impacts and storms or floods as examples of sudden impacts. The results of these impacts can cause droughts, pest population increase, a sudden spread of plant disease, soil erosion, and agricultural losses. The impact of climate-related risks are becoming widely recognized as no longer a future threat. Past and current experiences in climate-related risks are an invaluable learning opportunity to enhance our resilience to such impacts and reduce our vulnerability.
In our Biopharming projects, we focus efforts on building resilience into investments and development. Through the collaboration of project participants (C.A.P. Syndicate), we bridge the gaps in known/developing knowledge and technology. Once we can understand more of the impacts of climate change and the variability of extreme events we can improve our development of sustainable agriculture.
