Our vision: Agriculture and infrastructure without the environmental harm.
We believe Purebase is part of nature’s solution to the food, water, environment, and building problems humankind is facing. It’s a natural alternative to corporate chemical, genetic manipulation and polluting industrial solutions currently on the market. Creating abundant food, water, and building material for a cleaner environment, and world for all living things is what Purebase is all about.
Your investment represents a unique moment in history – the global challenge of feeding the world is becoming more difficult with each passing year. Climate change and an increasing population base are exacerbating the problem. Chemical pesticides and GMO crops are some of the current solutions, but these solutions have caused a now trending backlash from the global public, governments, and NGOs. Natural, effective, economical, non-chemical solutions are required.
We’d like to help farmers create an abundance of food, while conserving more, and doing no harm.
To that end, Purebase Grow is a comprehensive suite of soil amendment products. These products provide a better, more natural way to grow, manage and increase yield on the farm and deliver higher quality products right to the table. All without harming the environment.
Understanding our markets.
Agriculture is a 775.8 billion dollar a year industry in the U.S.
Agriculture and agriculture related industries contributed $775.8 billion to the U.S. GDP in 2012, a 4.8 percent share. The output of America’s farms contributed $166.9 billion of this sum – about 1 percent of GDP.
In 2012, 16.5 million full and part-time jobs were related to agriculture – about 9.2 percent of total U.S. employment.
Agriculture production is a major use of land, accounting for over half of the U.S. land base.
U.S. land area amounts to 2.3 billion acres with 1.2 billion acres in agricultural lands.
Fertilizer companies provide nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium that are used to help plants grow. In the U.S., corn crops use approximately 45% of the total available fertilizer. This is more than the combined 29% that wheat, soybeans, oilseeds, fruit, and vegetables use. The remaining 26% is used by other crops and uses other uses such as pesticides.
Crop production is concentrated in California and the Midwest.
California, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Nebraska are the five leading states in terms of value of crop sales.
With its large horticultural sector, California’s overall crop value is about three-quarters above that of Iowa, the second ranked state. In contrast to California, crop value in the next four leading states is based on grains and oilseeds, particularly corn and soybeans.
For other crops, Washington State typically leads the country in apple production, while Florida is the largest producer of oranges.
Agricultural production occurs in each of the 50 states and California leads the way.
California leads the country as the largest ag producer. In terms of sales value, California leads the country as the largest producer of agricultural products (crops and livestock), accounting for almost 11 percent of the national total, based on the 2012 Census of Agriculture.
Iowa, Texas, Nebraska, and Minnesota round out the top five agricultural producing states, with those five representing more than a third of U.S. agricultural output value.
Crops account for the largest share of the value of U.S. agricultural production.
Crops account for the largest share of the value of U.S. agricultural production. The value of production in the U.S. has risen over the past decade due to increases in production as well as higher prices. Yield gains for crops have been particularly important, although acreage has also risen recently in response to elevated prices since 2008. Falling prices led to a slight decline in value of crop production in 2013. While livestock production increased over the decade, prices were up more than 60 percent between 2003, and 2013, contributing to the rising value of livestock production.
