The COMPETITION and our COMPETITIVE EDGE
Project A: AGRICULTURE
- Acquire land by negotiating with selected existing farmers or land-owners to buy-out their property, stock and equipment, after appraisal of its value, paying off all outstanding indebtedness; entering into an agreement with the farmer and specified members of the family, to continue to work and maintain the farm under the conditions stipulated under this program, with the farmer remaining in residence on the property.
- On the lands acquired, run profitable agricultural, horticultural and aqua-culture programs and animal husbandry (excluding tobacco, hops, wine grapes and pigs) without genetically modified seeds or animals.
- Optimize the soil; install equipment to energize the soil, employ staff as required, examine and negotiate relationships with potential and existing suppliers and customers. Use simple and cost-effective methods for control over pests and disease (such as using chickens to keep down bugs), overlooked today on account of the advertising power of the agri-chemical industry
Our Competitive Edge:
- FAMILY AND CORPORATE FARMS, their debts growing greater every year, as the sale of their produce rarely meets the cost of production; depleted soil, deteriorating steadily due to the excessive use of chemical fertilizers; and discouraged operators, who see no future in farming, their children moving into other fields of endeavour. Farmers are currently obliged to adhere strictly to the chemical fertilization of their lands as laid down by agri-chemical manufacturers in order to obtain and keep government financing. This not only destroys the tilth of the soil and produces less nutritional crops but increases costs every year, often resulting in a negative income. Genetically modified or engineered seeds and crops from farms indirectly controlled by the agri-chemical industry, require seeds to be purchased annually and only specified fertilizers acquired for these crops.
- Most of the world's food production is controlled by just ten corporations - the 'food cartel' - investment analysts have emphasized the need to get in on this new development since 1995. See EIR (Executive Intelligence Review) Special Report of 1995 12 08 by Marcia Merry Baker entitled "Who is responsible for the world food shortage?"
- Organic farmers, usually small in size, struggling under similar conditions to other family and corporate farms, who are not privy to the extensive information available to us in this field or are unable to fund such changes.
Soil detoxification is a fast, safe process with no negative side-effects.
We will use natural, non-toxic local fertilizers and soil energizing systems known to increase crops by as much as 500% or more, at less cost and with more resultant nutrition in the harvest. A similar system was extremely effective back in the '40s and '50s, but was suppressed by the agri-chemical industry. This will also eliminate the undesirable, current runoff of salts into local water supplies and improve the immediate environment.
'Underground farming' will be one of the promising developments, protecting crops from extremely high winds, tornados and other extreme climatic conditions.
The planting of trees on the properties will increase the availability of oxygen locally, help to attract adequate rainfall and contribute to an overall healthy environment. The energized soil will allow more exotic, and profitable, plants and trees to be cultivated, such as the Black Walnut (worth $90,000 each when mature). Energized water will have a lasting, positive effect on the entire neighborhood and its natural water distribution systems.
Steps in the System
- Decontamination of the land by using soil samples from all individual land segments (those separated by natural or man-made delineations) using Dr Andrew M. Davie's method, or similar;
- Removal of all stones from the lands;
- One-time installation of the energizing system;
- Returning the stones to the land in the form of rock-dust (repeated every seven years);
- Strategic planting of trees as necessary
The overall result will be high profitability coupled with low annual overhead; increased harvest and nutritional value in crops, accompanied by environmental improvement; and the creation of jobs as well as a manufacturing opportunity for soil energy systems.
- As the system is labour-intensive, job-creation will keep teams of able-bodied individuals in work for as long as new systems are required.
- The system could be partly pre-manufactured for efficiency, creating a need for low-tech manufacturing plants and the employment of semi-skilled labour on the production line throughout the year.
