Vita Solum is a company that was founded to undertake sustainable agriculture. Its main purpose is to produce bioferments to nourish the soil and rehabilitate this great resource that, through the years of overexploitation, has seen its resources depleted.
Its activity focuses on the production of bioferences from food waste, biopesticides from food residues and adhesives for agricultural use from vegetable waste. "The water with which the crops are being irrigated is worrisome since they contain a lot of heavy metals, surfactants and other things," explains its manager, Gerardo Ignacio Diaz. "By using bioferments we perform bioremediation and provide soil/plant nutrition."
