NTS is committed to improving profitability for farmers. Food production is the most important of all professions and farmers must be nurtured, protected and supported in every way. Farming needs to be more profitable, more sustainable and more fun and we are passionately producing education, strategies and inputs to help achieve these goals. Our secondary goal is to improve soil health, plant health and human health and, more recently, this mission has been extended to include planetary health (in relation to global warming). The thin veil of topsoil that grows our food is fast diminishing. At our current rate of loss, there is just 60 years worth of topsoil remaining. There is an urgent need for soil restoration initiatives and NTS is driving this in over 50 countries worldwide.
Nutrition Farming® involves an emphasis on achieving maximum health and resilience for soil, plants, livestock, people and the planet. It is a truly holistic strategy with a hard science-based, pragmatic focus, where the endgame involves increasing profitability, sustainably. We are currently exploring the potential of using the Nutrition Farming® brand as a marketing umbrella for growers seeking a genuine alternative to organics. Certified Organics involves a long list of what you cannot do, while Nutrition Farming® is all about what you can do to produce highly nutritious, medicinal food for the consumer. Nutrition Farming® is a desperately important game plan for the improvement of our health and wellbeing in the 21st Century – it is the sustainable production of nutrient-dense food for the protection and sustenance of all who consume it. It is also designed to maximise profit for all-important food producers.
NTS has pioneered many popular approaches to soil and plant nutrition in Australia and the success of the company is reflected in the multitude of imitator companies that have spawned as a result. Many of our ideas, which were originally considered ‘fringe’, are now widely accepted by conventional agriculture.
In the last 21 years, we have trained tens of thousands of farmers and consultants across four continents. The NTS website is the world's most popular online sustainable agriculture presence. It features hundreds of articles and videos and is viewed as a primary portal for those seeking to change their future.
The NTS Certificate in Nutrition Farming® is an internationally acclaimed four-day course, which is offered at our own seminar centre and in venues around the world, every year.
