The results of an independent study conducted by Environmental Resources Management (ERM), a leading global environmental consulting firm, confirms that a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is immediately attainable for the agricultural industry. The study found that Anuvia’s plant-nutrient technology reduces greenhouse gases by up to 32% compared to the use of conventional fertilizers, while at the same time delivering a 3 to 5X ROI to the grower.
According to the EPA, agriculture accounts for nearly 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. It’s estimated that up to 50% of traditional fertilizer spread on a field never reaches the plant. Instead, nutrients are lost as gas or vapor, largely in the form of greenhouse gases NO2 and CO2, or leach into the water supply. In contrast, Anuvia’s clean technology delivers essential nutrients, slowly releasing them into the soil. More nutrients are used by the plant, and less is lost into the atmosphere and water supply.
The ERM study indicates that for every million acres of crops that use SymTRX, the reduction of greenhouse gases is the equivalent of removing 20,000 to 30,000 cars from the roads. With 90 million acres of corn in the United States alone, this would conservatively translate to 1.8 million cars removed in perpetuity. Anuvia is already positioned to reduce greenhouse gases on more than 1 million acres, with production capacity planned to dramatically increase by 2020.
For sustainable agriculture to be successful, it must benefit the farmer both environmentally and financially. The study shows that Anuvia technology provides an average ROI of up to 5X, which makes going green not just a good idea, but a good investment. Because it works with all current large-scale farming operations and machinery, and all the latest precision farming advancements, there are no barriers or special requirements.
