ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF GLOBAL AGRICULTURAL COMMODITY PRODUCTION
HOW CAN WE SUCCESSFULLY FEED A GROWING POPULATION WITHOUT DESTROYING OUR PLANET IN THE PROCESS ?
The current agricultural system already has major impacts on the global environment. The supply chains of the Food chain from agricultural production, to transport, food consumption and of course waste disposal. And we all know that the greatest impacts are concentrated at the agricultural production stage and the largest driver of global deforestation and biodiversity loss with all fertilizer application, waste water, electricity etc…
We believe with the method sustainable sourcing of raw materials is providing us with the means to reach our targets to “lower the cost, comply with the consumers demand in the competitive supplier market”, and we are responsible of source raw commodities produce from source
Design and project management of value chain initiatives
Sustainable sourcing programs ultimately need to connect the goals of buyers with the goals and practices of producers, suppliers and customers. The topics such as inclusion of small-scale producers in developing countries, strategies for low carbon farming, and sustainability metrics. Chain wide collaboration can be the critical element for resilient and efficient value chains.
Today, we pursue sustainable our business strategies, conducting high conservation value and social impact assessments, in order to support Pepper production using the methodology of Sustainable planning in assessing land to support the expansion of a potential site for Pepper cultivation. This project will lead to potential benefits included increased incomes; profits and government revenues; reduced poverty and improved natural resource management, including environmental, economic social and legal consideration. This new step to improve the lives of one million people in our community’s extended supply chains.
Improved agricultural management practices is require understanding and knowledge of how to create a sustainable global commodities system, including impacts on water quality and quantity, soil, labor intensive and fertilizer application.
Our method :
1. Rehabilitating degraded land
2. Field water management technique
3. Organic fertilizer application
4. Reduce Labor intensive with Low Carbon = Prevent Pesticide residue
5. Crop organic tree
6. Transfer sustainable methodologies to Farmers
1 – Rehabilitating spare or degraded land:
After the research, our Agronomist has located a potentially suitable site for Sustainable Pepper plantation.
This land has been study and found the most suitable cultivation conditions for the product range. It is another important strategy for business sustainable and end deforestation. Companies will trained all farmers, using our sustainable method, and will be certified sustainable plantation and can designed in accordance with established standard for sustainable Pepper production for the entire of the industry
2 – Field water management technique:
Use the spring water, re-use water with field water management techniques, which have the greatest impact of all farming practices and field flooding reduction practices have the benefit of reducing water consumption by Pepper.
3 – Organic fertilizer application:
We use organic fertilizer from con’s dung fermented to avoid all chemical treatment to our production
4 – ‘Low carbon” Prevent Pesticide residue free:
We’re using polyculture method by planting seasonal crops (chill, corn, soy, ginger )to avoid pets attraction during the harvest crop especially the chills has very strong smell and make pets go away from our Pepper.
Quality water and improve soil health with field water management it also has impact.
5 – Growth organic tree:
The seeds obtained from the farmers who are also committed to the pattern of organically managed plantations. By doing fertilizing with organic fertilizers (non-chemical) – Pesticide Free
6 – Transfer Sustainable methodologies to Farmers:
Companies provide training to the farmers on a regular basis about the new cultivation techniques throughout the season. They work closely with Farmers and support them with agricultural materials. They work as teamwork to adopt sustainable practice and meet specific certification in order to increase their income and profit. But we also support the transition efforts of farmer who crops are not yet certified by using our new sparing land.
