CAIRO - 28 June 2017: While conventional farming is suitable for mass production, old organic farming is more suitable for human health. Nothing beats nutritious fruits and vegetables stoked with more vitamins and a stronger taste.
Farmers in Luxor, Upper Egypt, install biogas units in a system that should work for decades at a time. They put dung in a completely dark, oxygen-free room, and the product is organic, seed free material only stoked with healthy soil bacteria that naturally overcome harmful bacteria.
Meanwhile, the process produces pure gasoline to be used for cooking and electricity generation.
Before applying that system, which kills seeds in the dung, organic farming required endless working hours to manually clear the ground from weeds that would otherwise deprive fruits from essential nutrition and bring about harmful insects and bacteria. Seeds in animal food are left in the dung used to fertilize the soil; hence weeds that grow among other plants.
Entrepreneur Mahmoud Taha, head of Agritech, uses the biogas mechanism in his tomato farm in Luxor and produces
that go all the way to Italy to be part of the Mediterranean cuisine.
Next time you head to Luxor, make sure you pick your fruits and vegetables from a biogas organic farm.
