Beyonic - farmers spreading fertilizerIn a bid to help repair soil damaged by overuse of chemical fertilizers, the Indonesian Institute of Sciences has launched microbe-based ‘Beyonic' technology to be used in the production of organic fertilizers.

"Magic seeds and magic chemicals introduced to our farmers as part of the green revolution did increase productivity, especially for rice. But this program, as a whole, has disrupted the agricultural system in the country," Endang said.

"As a result of the green revolution our endemic seeds have gradually perished and our farmers' local wisdom is no longer relevant. And worst of all, the quality of our land is deteriorating."
