We are proud to announce that Mzuri Technology addresses over 50% of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Adopted by all United Nations Members, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future.

In global partnership, 17 Sustainable Development Goals were created to tackle regional and global issues including addressing food security, tackling climate change and protecting our natural resources.

It is a privilege, together with our partners, to be working towards a future centred around a stable ecological environment that is fit to feed the future.

Largely centred around providing sustainable agricultural solutions that benefit the environment, deliver for public good and enhance food security, our Mzuri Technology addresses the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:

Through innovative product design, the Mzuri system supports growers to improve the resiliency of their arable soils, ensuring productivity does not come at the detriment of the environment.

Delivered by reducing field cultivations, supporting consistent crop establishment and over winter ground cover, soils are strengthened in their capacity for adaption to climate change, extreme

weather, drought and flooding. We are proud that Mzuri users consistently report improvements to their soil health since adopting the Mzuri principles when compared to conventional crop establishment, which ensures on a wider scale a stable ecological environment that is fit to feed the future.

The Mzuri system directly addresses food security both in the UK and across the world, through improving the resiliency of crop establishment in challenging growing seasons to deliver real benefits to growers wider societies.

At Mzuri we are passionate about leaving something to be proud of, including leaving a natural environment that is supportive of good health and wellbeing. The Mzuri system addresses air, water and soil pollution through several channels. Through single pass crop establishment the Mzuri system reduces the number of tractor operations compared to conventional establishment, directly translating to lower fuel usage and associated greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to cleaner air for all.

In addition, through preserving the soil structure of arable land and advocating for keeping crop residue or continuous ground cover on the field surface, the Mzuri system mitigates against the risks of nutrient leaching and run off into watercourses. This can have a direct impact on the surrounding water infrastructure and drinking water quality.

A primary driver of the Mzuri system is preserving soil health achieved through minimising the movement of soil, protecting a healthy soil structure and maintaining continuous ground cover.

All of this combined, allows the Mzuri system to deliver a mitigation strategy for growers to reduce the risk of nutrient run off and leaching of chemistry into water courses. Well-structured soil, more resilient against high rain fall, means soil particles, fertiliser and crop protection products remain in the field, not washed into watercourses where they go on to have a detrimental effect on delicate ecosystems.

In turn, this improves the quality of water taken for drinking water, with nitrates being of particular concern for water treatment facilities. Mzuri are proud to deliver a system for crop establishment that mitigates against the risk of water pollution both for our communities, and for wider ecological systems.

At Mzuri we firmly believe crop production doesn’t have to come at the expense and degradation of our natural environment. Through Mzuri management of our soils and engaging integrated crop management strategies growers can deliver profitable crops to market with reduced inputs over conventional crop production. By reducing the inputs such as fuel, fertiliser and chemistry that very same tonne of crop, can have significant beneficial influence on the wider impacts of food production and its associated use of global resources.

By adopting the Mzuri system, growers can sustainably manage the production of crops through both environmental and commercial standpoints.

Through reduced cultivation and better management of soils, we can preserve arguably our most important natural resources, our soils. By keeping soil in the field where it belongs, we can improve the longevity and productivity of our arable land, providing future proof farming and food security for generations to come.

In addition, this reduction in cultivation directly translates to a reduction in fuel usage per tonne of crop when compared to conventional establishment. This reduction in machinery operations also supports the uptake of other technologies such as electric or alternative powered tractors which can further contribute to responsible production.

The Mzuri crop establishment system, through innovative design and development can strengthen a farms resilience to climate related incidents, in particular the impacts of extreme weather patterns. Arable land that is managed in a way that works with the soil is better able to withstand periods of extreme wet weather, and periods of drought, whilst supporting a healthy active crop through to harvest.

Advocating single pass crop establishment, the Mzuri system reduces greenhouse gas emissions when compared to conventional establishment which contributes in itself to climate change. In addition, when looking at the benefits of band placing fertiliser into the soil, below the seed at the time of seeding, the Mzuri system is able to also improve the efficiency of nutrient applications reducing the product requirement, further reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with the manufacture and transportation of commercial fertilisers.

As previously mentioned, preserving the integrity of our arable farmland is key to protecting water courses both regionally and further afield. Soils that are mismanaged will leach nutrients, crop protection products and soil residue into water courses delivering real damage such as eutrophication to delicate ecosystems.

By advocating that previous crop residue is left on the field surface, and by not disrupting the soils natural structure, the Mzuri system supports farming practices that mitigate the risk of leaching, particularly prevalent for areas of high rain fall or in nitrate vulnerable zones.

Arguably our soils are our most valuable asset, providing the medium to grow nutritious food to support our communities. The Mzuri system works with soil not against it, protecting and preserving this asset so that we may leave a resilient and productive land for future generations.

In turn, by not inverting the soil we can prevent the degradation of our soils which support wider ecosystems and communities both on a local and global scale.
