Our philosophy is that things need to be simple to be effective. If a problem occurs and there are more solutions, the easiest solution will be best (Occam’s razor 1287–1347). If there is a problem in Africa, like FAW, keep your solution as close to African custom as possible. If you have to change too much, it will not work. Spray Rebearth together with other spraying rounds you already have to do, or only spray when needed.

How nature works

Some general remarks on growing plants:

In the (top) soil there are huge amounts of spores and seeds, tens of thousands per square metre. If all conditions are met for a certain seed, it germinates. Conditions such as water, sunlight, minerals, acidity, sun and moon phase, month of the year etc. The seeds, just after germination, signals other seeds not to start growing at the same time. This is done in a hormonal way, via auxins. This chemical is part of many weed killers and prevents germination. Optimal conditions during growth will produce a good yield and high quality harvest. If conditions are extreme like drought, flooding, mineral shortage, storms, toxins, stress etc. the results will decrease. The plant “knows” what is going on and reacts. In severe drought you see trees dropping leaves, all on their own, or a dying tree gives a lot of fruits for the last time, to secure survival of the species. If conditions are very bad, the plant “knows” that it will not survive and it takes actions to finalise the cycle of life. The plant calls in insects, fungi, moulds etc. They are the scavengers of nature, that will restore balance, by breaking down the dying plant into inputs for the next growing cycle. The “call” of the plant to be destroyed, is done in the infra red spectrum and can be measured. Normally if the above situation occurs, the farmer starts spraying all sort of (toxic) substances to kill the invaders (insects, fungi etc.). Result is, that people and cattle eat plants that wanted to commit suicide, because of bad quality. And above that, they mostly eat a part of the toxins meant for the invaders.

What does Rebearth do in situations like this?

If you spray Rebearth from the start, seeding or planting, you optimize the surroundings for your crops. It stimulates plant vigour, so it can cope with harsh situations longer than without Rebearth. Eventually the plant cycle will end as well. A few extra weeks of real growth will mean the difference between a bad harvest and a successful one. The difference between hunger and abundance.

How do plants know how to restore balance and fight invaders?

Balance is an unspoken natural system, based on “DNA & experience”. Supply and demand are basic components of this system. When there is a demand, the supply will follow, not the other way around. When there are people, there will be restaurants shortly. When there is a mineral imbalance in the soil, there will be weeds shortly, to restore balance. When there are weak plants, there will be insects to clean up the weak plants. If you chemically kill weeds, mineral imbalance increases and weeds will accelerate growth in size and number. What you fight gets stronger. If you remove weeds manually and leave plant residue in the field, you gradually restore (part of) the imbalance.

How is it possible that Rebearth kills the FAW?

Actually Rebearth does not kill the FAW directly. It stimulates the plant to make its own chemicals to kill invaders in general. Through this way of arming the plant, it does not create superbugs.  If there is a DNA mutation in the invader (FAW), the plant simply reacts by producing an adapted form of chemicals, that does the job again. Mutants are killed as well. Developing resistance against Rebearth is impossible, because it works with nature, not against. Rebearth supports the wanted, instead of fighting the unwanted. Rebearth invigorates nature to its optimum. Nature knows how to take care of things, often much better than people do.
