Using Less Water to Feed the Planet
Lotus Foods - Profit - www.LotusFoods.com
Rice feeds half the planet. Much more is needed for future population growth. The challenge is diminishing land and water resources. Each year 24-30% of Earth's freshwater supply is pumped onto rice paddies. The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) is a more environmentally sustainable method that enables farmers to increase their yields while cutting water consumption in half, using 90% less seed, and fewer or no agrochemicals. Lotus Foods is opening market opportunities for small-scale SRI farmers who are contributing to food security and water and biodiversity conservation. Free Range can help us scale our business to reach more farmers.
Great idea! Looking forward to hearing more about it in the papers.
Great work, great product!

It's already making a difference to farmers, to natural resources, and to biodiversity.
