Generate Revenue with Carbon Sequestration
Agricultural operations that engage in biological practices are able to earn “carbon credits” which can be an additional source of revenue for the 10-20 tons of carbon per hectare per year they sequester. TriPoint partners with carbon sequestration quantification, improvement and carbon credit sales platforms to facilitate the creation of these additional revenue streams for customers.
Reduce Water Use up to 70%
In the process of restoring growth to agricultural and natural ecosystems, TriPoint’s approach improves soil structure – enabling it to be far more efficient at retaining water for consumption by crops. This improvement in irrigation efficiency reduces the water demand of crops, and its associated costs, up to 70%, while at the same time significantly reducing or eliminating run-off and erosion. Combined with the elimination of synthetic amendments, nearby water resources are no longer contaminated by residual runoff or leaching.
Eliminate Dependence on Biocides
All the nutrients a plant needs to grow and thrive are available through its interaction with soil microorganisms. Inorganic fertilizers are no longer required, and are actually highly disruptive to soil food web systems and processes. The presence of beneficial microorganisms on plant surfaces physically and biochemically prevent infection by pathogenic organisms and pests. Similar beneficial organisms in the soil displace, outcompete, consume and otherwise inhibit the presence of disease and pest organisms. Pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides are no longer needed.
Eliminate Exposure to Harmful Chemicals
Aside from their damaging effects on soil ecosystems, synthetic agricultural amendments also pose health risks for workers engaged in cultivating and harvesting crops. All persons in agricultural operations - including farmers, workers and their families often come in contact with these synthetics. TriPoint's all-natural prescriptive alternatives completely eliminate the use of these harmful chemicals – creating a healthier environment for both crops and people.
Improve Condition of Surrounding Ecosystems
Though TriPoint''s process focuses on renewing and restoring depleted or damaged agricultural soil ecosystems, the natural restoration of these environments has an additional beneficial effect – strengthening the endemic flora and fauna surrounding farming communities that aid in the elimination of pests and diseases.
