Working towards target 6.3Β Β
In a world with increasing population we need to find ways to protect water quality and preserve water stocks. Fertiliser leaching is a major contributor to groundwater pollution. Levity are committed to developing and making available more environmentally stable fertilisers, which will allow crops to be grown without polluting groundwater. Levity have developed technology that eliminates nitrate leaching, allowing lower levels of non-polluting fertilisers to be used and giving larger yields. We will contribute to Global Goal Target 6.3 by targeting replacement of conventional nitrogen with Levity’s more advanced and environmentally stable products around the world, and will continue to contribute to the research and development in this field.
Working towards target 2.3Β Β
Water use in agriculture is already at unsustainable levels, with aquifers being depleted far faster than they are being refilled. This is limiting agricultural expansion. Furthermore as water is depleted aquifers are becoming saline, making water more and more salty and less and less suitable for either drinking or producing crops. Levity are fully committed to Global Goal 2.3 and have an impressive research and development programme aimed at developing products that can allow more saline water to be used for crop production. Our technology is proven to be able to grow crops using 25% seawater and we are working hard to help farmers benefit from this and our other water saving technology.
Working towards target 6.6Β Β
Water is important for all life, and ways must be found that allow crops to be grown without negatively impacting on our oceans, lakes and rivers. Agriculture is a major contributor to pollution of water, and to over extraction of water and is having a negative effect on aquatic life around the world. Our scientists are targeting development of technology that can eliminate leaching of fertilsers into groundwater. Levity believe that the technology already exists that can stop nitrate pollution of aquifers, we are committed to Global Goal Target 6.6 and will continue to promote use and adoption of zero pollution agricultural inputs.
