Need for Zero-residue Farming

The agriculture industry is under increasing pressure to integrate measures that minimize the presence of chemical residues in farm produce. Modern farming methods use crop protection strategies based on high input of synthetic chemical pesticides. Although these pesticides are often effective, the problems that arise with their use are manifold. They cause acute and chronic health effects, affect the equilibrium of agricultural systems and the environment and also lead to socio-economic problems in the farming community.

Camson believes the key to safer produce and sustainable yields lies in the concept of zero-residue farming. Zero-residue farming uses organically derived biocides and biofertilizers to protect crops and enhance growth.



Zero-residue farming: How microbial products work?

Microbial biopesticides and biofertilizers are formulates of secondary metabolites. These metabolites are bioagents beneficial to soil conditioning and improve the plant physiology and produce. They mobilize the micronutrients in soil to maximize their utilization by the growing plant.

Unlike broad-spectrum synthetic chemicals, these products work specifically against certain pests, without harming other organisms. Since they are living strains, they assimilate into the ecosystem without leaving any toxic residue.
