As nature intended. We did not inherit this earth from our forefathers, it is on loan from our grandchildren.
“My mission is to play my part in contributing towards leaving this planet in a better state than it is. I believe that it is not too late and that we can all help to make a difference”
We have to ask ourselves the big question, why does every second person that we talk to today know someone who suffers from heart disease or cancer?
After the Second World War we entered the chemical era:
- Rapidly expanding industrialization
- The manufacture of millions of vehicles by the automotive industry
- Chemical fertilisers and chemical sprays for agriculture
All of which resulted in increased air and water pollution.
I can go on and on about my boyhood in the 1940’s and my memories of how much healthier the people living in my village (population 3000), in the rocky mountains in the middle of Cyprus, were back then.
I have worked with a team of dedicated people to develop the technology for a enzymatic hydrolysis plant, to use the offal from our fish processing factory to produce what I believe is the best sustainable liquid fish fertiliser ever produced.
New Zealand, as a nation, catches over 1 million tonnes of fish per year generating approximately 600 thousand tonnes of waste, the majority of which goes into the production of fish meal, a very energy hungry method, whereas the enzymatic hydrolysis method is a low energy user.
After conducting two years of trials on two Canterbury dairy farms, by the independently operated Land Research Services based at Lincoln University the results showed:
a) “Overall, we had a significant response for the nitrogen-alone and the combined Bio Marinus and nitrogen treatments over the control. Bio Marinus worked best in conjunction with nitrogen and allowed a lower rate of nitrogen to be applied for the same or better response over the higher rates of nitrogen alone.”
b) “Pasture quality for the Bio Marinus and nitrogen treatments was as high, or higher, than the nitrogen only treatments. It was interesting to note that the combined Bio Marinus and nitrogen treatment results show the levels of Calcium and Magnesium content were 10% higher than nitrogen only treatments.”
By using natural compost and biological fertilisers, either alone or in combination with reduced amounts of chemical fertilisers, it will bring us one step closer to creating a healthier environment that our children and our grandchildren can enjoy in the future. Crops, vegetables and fruits have higher density and nutritional value, greater resistance to disease, and they taste better.
