Agriculture can place significant pressure on the environment and its natural resources. Sustainable agriculture practices are intended to protect the environment, expand the earth’s natural resource base, and maintain and improve soil fertility. Based on a multi-pronged goal, sustainable agriculture seeks to:

  • Increase profitable farm income

  • Promote environmental stewardship

  • Enhance quality of life for farm families and communities

  • Increase production for human food and fiber needs

Our core microalgae technology, together with our partner technologies, creates an ethical, sustainable, and natural product portfolio for growers who want to be a part of the future of agriculture. We aim to maximize crop production while minimizing harmful effects on soil, people, and the environment. We understand the challenges growers face today, and we’re ready to take on the new demands that will arise tomorrow.

Why sustainable agriculture is important

Sustainable agriculture encompasses a wide range of production practices, both conventional and organic. A regionally integrated system of plant and animal production practices are designed to produce long-term results, such as:

  • Production of sufficient human food, feed, fiber, and fuel to meet the needs of a fast-growing population

  • Protection of the environment and expansion of the natural resources supply

  • Sustainment of the economic viability of agriculture systems

How microalgae contributes to sustainable agriculture

AlgaEnergy’s microalgae products help growers in two crucial ways:

  • As biofertilizers, which enhance crop nutrition

  • As biostimulants, which offer balanced nutrition, improve abiotic stress tolerance and help manage pests and weeds

Sustainably produced using CO2 emissions from a natural gas power facility, AlgaEnergy’s microalgae can be customized for a large variety of crops and climates. The list of nutrients they provide includes carbon, proteins, plant hormones, carbohydrates, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, nutrients, polysaccharides, carotenoids, pigments, fiber and others.

AlgaEnergy’s biological products are produced utilizing microbial consortia fermentation technology. These products contain diverse microbial populations, including living beneficial microbes and metabolites, mimicking the microbiome of healthy soils and compost. They maximize plant vidor and, with regular use, build a friable, rich, and resilient soil. They reduce crop loss from abiotic stress factors, including transplantation of seedlings, soil salt content, and flooding.
