High yields and environmental control in crop farming call for precise adaptations to local growing conditions. To improve the soil fertility the use of mycorrhiza can be beneficial.
Mycorrhiza is a symbiotic association between a green plant and a fungus. The plant makes organic molecules such as sugars by photosynthesis and supplies them to the fungus, and the fungus supplies to the plant water and mineral nutrients, such as phosphorus, taken from the soil.
Also high tech methods that include proximal sensing and signals from satellites can provide for controls that allow adjusting farming operations to small fractions of one ha and sometimes even down to some m2, hence in a site-specific mode.
Centurion has the know-how to support crop production to prepared for the future.
Developments in breeding, nutrition and animal health will continue to contribute to increasing potential production and further efficiency and genetic gains. Livestock production is likely to be increasingly affected by carbon constraints and environmental and animal welfare legislation.
To support the producers to overcome the challenges we are convinced that Concept feeding is the key.
This reaches from pre-natal feeding to strategies to improve carcass and meat quality, without the use of anti-biotics.
This helps the economical bottom line and the environment.
