Conventional farming relies almost explicitly on synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. These chemical fertilizers solve farming problems on temporary basis and its prolonged and repeated use reduces the soil fertility & makes it more toxic. Soil quality starts to decline rapidly and complex ecological problems intensify and these result in lower yield and poorer crops as time progresses. Developed about 60 years ago, chemicals and synthetic fertilizers have deteriorated soil quality to an alarming degree. In the past farmers rely on natural methods to fertilize their crops and plant. Natural fertilizers from composting, enzyme-rich substances and organic matter were used extensively. Enzymes for agricultural applications present a big advantage in fertilizing, enriching the soil and ensure its continued productivity. It is evident from many studies that enzyme preparations are highly effective in crop production and also enhancing animal performance through enzyme-rich feeds. Biotechnology as applied to food processing makes use of microbes and enzymes to enhance properties such as the taste, aroma, shelf-life, texture and nutritional value of food crops.
Micro-organisms and their enzymes bring about these desirable changes in crops that conventional farming never can. The enzyme products developed by Afrizymes are naturally produced and are not genetically engineered or modified making them very safe to use and environmentally friendly. These products have gained wide acceptance in the agricultural and farming sectors for many years.
