Soil is a distinctive mixture of minerals, organic matter, gases, liquids, and the myriad of organisms that together support plant life. It acts as an engineering medium, a recycling system for nutrients, a regulator of water quality, a modifier of atmospheric composition, the largest surficial global carbon reservoir on Earth, and potentially one of the most reactive to human disturbance and climate change. The world’s ecosystems can be impacted in far reaching ways by the processes carried out in the soil, from ozone depletion and global warming, to rain forest destruction and water pollution.
Soil incorporates a range of available niches and habitats for optimum plant growth. The rise in the use of pesticides and other types of adulterations over the years is severely effecting the environment. The health of domestic animals as well as humans is also deteriorating because of the increased presence of these adulterations in the fruits and vegetables that we consume.
At Mrida, we attempt to harness the potential inherent in the soil by encouraging small and marginal farmers to adopt organic and other modern and clean, healthy cultivation practices. We also work with them – individually and in the form of Self Help Groups, facilitating in many different ways, activities that will add value to their produce and result in higher income levels and prosperity.
Mrida Greens and Organics Pvt. Ltd. treats agriculture and related interventions as tools for income generation and livelihood enhancement in remote villages. Our work reflects our philosophy of value addition across all constituents of the value chain, with specific focus on the Base of the Pyramid.
We at Mrida are truly inspired by the Power of the Soil. Together, let’s adopt and encourage the practice of sustainable agriculture for a healthier and more progressive life today, for a better and more prosperous tomorrow.
