Forty five percent of the world's food, including half its livestock, is produced in the dry areas. Of the 2.7 billion people that live in the drylands, it is estimated that about 40 million live in deserts that typically receive under 100mm of rainfall a year.
Covering about one-third of global land surface, deserts are characterized by little to no rainfall, poor and sandy soil, extreme temperatures, scorching winds, little water catchment potential, and almost complete reliance on often non-renewable groundwater.
Yet, the sustainability of vulnerable desert agriculture is gravely threatened by several factors that combined, form a perfect storm situation. Climate change, population pressures, inappropriate land management practices, extreme temperatures, low soil fertility, limited availability of organic matter, water scarcity and salinity, wind erosion, high evaporation rates, and isolation from energy sources and markets are all factors that combine to form a bleak outlook for the family farmers who live there.
But despite these threats, decades of research and technological development have meant that desert agriculture is no longer confined to isolated patches such as oases and has made great strides forward.
The expansion of desert farming, which encompasses horticulture production, date palms, irrigated forages, rangeland rehabilitation, protected agriculture, livestock, and fish production, has also been spurred by the willingness of many countries, states, and governments to create supportive policies that encourage desert farming to help reduce their reliance on food imports, and to promote added-value products for export such as organic produce.
Yet, deserts are a source of livelihood for millions of people. But the food systems and agrobiodiversity of deserts are under threat, which is where khuba group comes in, to protect and enriches the soil with organic matter and microorganisms and improves water holding capacity with tailor made products.
Water & plant nutrients are scares in deserts, the FIRST issue of water loss / percolation (Water draining into the sand & rock) is commonly addressed by use of plastic sheet / liner but it leads to plant drowning, loss of exchange capacity (Commonly known as breathability), Leaf yellowing, stunted growth etc. The use of plastic liner can be avoided by using our natural minerals. The SECOND issue of nutrients is taken care by providing all required nutrients for growth in deserts / arid land by KHUBA SOIL CONDITIONER.

There are several organic fertilizer benefits, some purely altruistic, others much more self-interested. First of all, most inorganic fertilizers provide only that well-known trio, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), & Potassium (K). These three, known as the macro-nutrients, are indeed required in greater quantity than any others, but they are only three of the thirteen nutrients plants need. The three chemicals that qualify as secondary nutrients, calcium, sulfur, and magnesium are generally ignored, as are the trace nutrients, boron, chlorine, manganese, iron, zinc, copper, etc. While these are needed in far smaller quantities than the macro-nutrients, they are still essential.
Khuba Soil Conditioner contain all the above mentioned & many other trace elements that plants may need and which are not found in most chemical formulation.
Our products are derived from mineral source which take care of the earlier negative impacts, provide higher yield, and regenerate the damaged soil and reduce the need for application of external fertilizer and make them largely self sufficient over a period of time.
It is made with multiple selected natural minerals, which contain all major and micro nutrients with many other trace elements that plants may need and which are not found in most chemical formulation.
APART FROM ABOVE THERE ARE MANY ASPECTS TO BE CONSIDERED LIKE:
It is not just nutrients, we have to weigh, but how they are delivered, their compatibility, reduction in usage and many more, such attributes are to be considered to make a healthy soil, and a healthy soil makes a healthy plant which provides us nutritious food. Many other beneficial details are provided in comparisons and FAQ.
It is now, time for sustainable agriculture farming in sustainable ways, meeting present needs, without compromising the sustainability of future generations. Now it is essential to increase our knowledge base on sustainable agriculture for healthy living, sustenance and benefit of mankind.
