Last week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report stressing the importance of land management in the ongoing battle to fight climate change. Through deforestation, general human activities, and agriculture, 70% of the Earth’s land surface has been altered, it states, adding to climate-warming emissions and making it more difficult for forests and other ecosystems to store greenhouse gases.
Locus Agricultural Solutions (Locus AG) reports record levels of carbon sequestered in land treated with a breakthrough line of soil amendments (soil “probiotics”), including Rhizolizer® , which is pulling up to 121% more carbon into the soil than non-treated plots within a year—the largest impact any approach has offered to date. Results from the treatment of almonds, cherries, turf/sod, grapes and citrus across the U.S., as well as impressive preliminary growth data from hardwood reforestation, show a dramatic increase in soil carbon sequestration as well as vastly improved plant productivity. The new data, verified by multiple third parties, comes ahead of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report release this week stressing the importance of addressing agricultural land in the fight against climate change.
Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) announces a partnership with Locus Agricultural Solutions® (Locus AG) to trial a new technology, developed by Locus AG, that is expected to improve capture of soil carbon, reduce applied nitrogen fertilizer needs and improve yield.
EarthX 2019 will pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during the largest environmental event, thanks to a new and innovative approach—microbial soil “probiotic” treatments from biotech pioneer Locus Agricultural Solutions (Locus AG). The turf treated has the potential to sequester up to 3.2 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents from the atmosphere annually per acre.
SOLON, Ohio (March 26, 2019) Positive data is confirming there is a unique solution to reduce greenhouse gases that is working today through an unexpected source: agricultural “probiotics”. Rhizolizer®, a line of customizable, non-GMO soil treatments from Locus Agricultural Solutions® (Locus AG) has proven to be the first microbial tool to successfully improve struggling agricultural productivity while also reducing greenhouse gases and sequestering carbon—making it the first low-cost solution that optimizes grower profits and improves environmental impact.
