New Leaf Technologies
New Leaf Technologies develops "green technology" products for a world in transition. Overpopulation, pollution, dwindling natural resources and climate change see our planet in crisis in many parts of the world.
New Leaf grows 10-foot, knot-free tree seedlings in just 5 years from seed, five times faster than the current capabilities of conventional nurseries. In a rapidly changing world, this creates an opportunity to create instant forests where there were none before.
The world grew more food in the last 5 years than the previous 50 due to mechanization, increased chemical use, government policies that favored maximizing production of subsidized crops and a move away from sustainable farming. The result is topsoil depletion, groundwater contamination, the decline of the family farm, poor food quality, seed manipulation, increased food costs and the dependence on "supermarkets" that have left us at the mercy of a fossil fuel driven agricultural system that is on the verge of collapse. Our food future is entirely dependent on the development of new agricultural technologies and a return to simple and sustainable agricultural practices, which will help combat a growing global food crisis. For many of us, the solution may be as simple as growing food at home.
Our forests are in trouble! Trees are diseased and dying all over the planet due to climate change, insect infestations and unsustainable logging practices.
More and more experts are concluding that the trees are also succumbing, at least in part, to man-made pollution — in the forms of acid rain, ozone, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and toxic heavy metals. Experts agree that our forests are going to continue to decline unless immediate action is taken.
New Leaf Technologies is poised to effect a positive change in the world's forests growing fast growing trees on a global scale. Patented New Leaf technology grows hardwood and softwood tree seedlings to an average height of 12 feet in just 7 years from seed. New Leaf specializes in growing valuable tree species, particuarily harvestable veneer quality sawlogs for renewable forests. New Leaf tall tree seedlings create an opportunity to more effectively combat climate change, create renewabe forests and return investment to investors much sooner.
Unsustainable farming practices are currently stripping nutrient laden topsoil at rate that is 40 times faster than it can be replenished. The most precious resource of all; water has been so mismanaged that there is only half the water needed to irrigate the world’s farmland.
For the past 60 years, global agribusiness is a significant contributor to climate change, loss of biodiversity, pollution and water shortages as well as preventable disease and poverty.
Patented and trademarked in over 40 countries, Crop Circles is a New Leaf Technologies product set to disrupt global agriculture and a return to sustainable agriculture.
New Leaf Crop Circles use less water, less land and grow twice the food in half the time in any climate, anywhere.
