The use of pesticides MUST be reduced. At the same time, farmers must continue to produce food in a sustainable manner. This sounds like a paradox, but not much longer. When our technology kills all weed, seeds, fungi and nematodes in the soil, the vegetables get less competition for nutrition, water and sunlight, and you get up to 50% larger crop. Many vegetables can also be stored much longer. This means that in many cases you can produce more and healthier food, at a lower cost. Soil Steaming reduces food waste.
