It is estimated that farmers will have to produce 70% more food by 2050 to feed our entire population. This does not bode well, as current agricultural practices will not be able to sustain such exponential growth. In addition, these processes are also known to exhaust natural resources and depend on chemical additives. As a result, we are in need of a comprehensive solution that involves a major change in how we produce food. Bee Vectoring Technology (BVT) has created a way in which farmers can increase productivity while protecting the environment.
“This is more than an idea, it’s a reality.”
Ashish Malik, CEO of Bee Vectoring Technology
In essence, BVT’s process uses commercially-reared bees to provide effective crop control through the natural process of pollination. The key to this innovative approach is Vectorite—a compound that is picked up by the bees and left behind on each of the flowers they visit. This naturally occurring, non-genetically modified fungus promotes crop health and productivity by blocking diseases. In the end, farmers will see an improvement in the quantity and quality of crops, while leaving a much smaller carbon footprint, as BVT uses less machinery and chemicals, and absolutely no water. In addition to all of these benefits, this practice does not harm the bees, plants, and animals involved in the process. Overall, BVT promises an efficient and cost-effective solution that is advantageous to growers, consumers, and our planet.
The Buzz Around the Brand
As an emerging company, BVT is in the midst of building a strong network. Ashish Malik, CEO of BVT, states that past trials have demonstrated very promising results, one of them being a yield increase of 6 – 30% when using BVT’s new strategy. In addition, evidence has also shown that these practices result in a significant decrease in disease and a longer shelf life. While the company has conducted many more tests, these ones alone indicate its potential into becoming a profitable business and a worthwhile investment. And with the belief that it can positively impact growing practices around the word, BVT has already attracted a group of investors who are passionate about the cause, and often share ideas of their own, too. Malik shares that this kind of engagement is one that BVT thrives off of. In the future, the company hopes to see even greater involvement in its mission of providing sustainable solutions to the agriculture industry.
