What's the Problem?
Soil is a non-renewable natural resource. However, current agricultural practices have accelerated its degradation, making much of it unsuitable for cultivation. According to the FAO, 33% of the world's arable land is already degraded by salinization and chemical pollution. In the next few years, 4 billion people, 50% of the world's population, are expected to live in arid areas, and this puts the food supply at risk. Although a sustainable alternative to this problem is the use of biological inoculants, the existing products in the current market are only effective in fertile soils.
