ASLE operations cover Agriculture, Soil, Land, and Environment sectors. We focus on building bridges between these sectors through our research and technology. We create new opportunities by combining innovative concepts and technologies with industry knowledge, scientific research, experience, and expertise. Our proprietary technologies and products increase the energy efficiency of the plant system while contributing to the overall plant and soil health and sustainability of our environment. ASLE Technologies Group was formed to address the widening gap between sustainable agriculture and an exponentially growing population. If we can keep the existing land safe for future generations, making it more efficient and productive through sustainable methods, this gap can be narrowed. ASLE helps clients to meet their specific needs through a process of individual evaluation. ASLE is committed to the integration of innovative technologies that accommodate constantly growing demands in global food markets while keeping the environment clean and increasing productivity. We strive to create products and services that help users meet their operational needs and increase their profits while maintaining a healthy environment. We focus on building bridges between the existing gaps among agriculture, soil, land and environmental disciplines through innovative research.
The ASLE Ag-Research team collaborates with research institutions and industry partners to develop innovative technologies that enhance soil-plant energy systems, plant nutrition, and crop protection. The result is ground-breaking products that keep the environment clean and increase productivity. Our technologies resulted in developing products that regulate plant ATP energy within plant cells, increase photosynthetic efficiency and reduce photo-inhibition and stress. ATG products also reduce peroxide stress in plants, stimulate early plant growth, increase nutrient uptake and restore soil quality. ATG develops unique salt-free fertilizers with high organic carbon using non-synthetic chemical sources. We maintain a competitive position in the agriculture industry through the continuous development of new formulations designed to better serve the farming communities.
Land reclamation is the process of improving lands to make them suitable for more intensive use. ASLE makes every effort to protect land and has developed technologies that reduce and/or mitigate potential damage to land and soil. For example, ASLE has developed innovative zero salt fertilizers and contaminant free products that have a positive effect on the lands they are used upon. Land Reclamation of oil-well site helps to bring back the land to its original state as it was prior to commissioning. ASLE not only strives to supply leading technologies, services and products but also to understand the critical needs in providing technical assistance and service to meet project needs. Our Land reclamation technologists will take care of the site using a suitable combination of technologies and systems to reclaim the land as per the Canadian Land Reclamation Guidelines. If you or your business needs help with research and technology to help develop new strategies for reclamation, please feel free to contact us.
Soil Security is Food Security.
Soil quality is defined as the capacity of a soil to function for specific land uses or within ecosystem boundaries. This capacity is an inherent characteristic of soil and varies from location to location. Organic-matter content, salinity, tilth, compaction, available nutrients, and microbial biomass contribute to soil health and quality. Soil organic matter content, biological activity, acidity, and salinity are related to the ability of soil to store and supply nutrients for plant growth. Compaction, accumulation of salts, excess nutrients and chemicals, and toxic chemicals are the most significant soil quality concerns. Excessive use of inorganic fertilizers and chemicals can increase the loss of nutrients and lead to accumulation of chemicals that pollute ground and surface waters and cause environmental damage.
Protecting and repairing soil quality and health is the top priority of ASLE.
The ASLE Environmental Specialist team helps mitigate water stress and provides carbon capture technologies. We work on enhancing carbon capturing and nitrous oxide emission reduction programs for our clients. Our research and development activities aim to maintain our steadfast commitment to environmental stewardship by the application of sound scientific principles to the fieldwork. While agriculture is not the only activity with the potential to affect freshwater negatively, it is a significant contributor to water & air pollution. There may be a surface runoff of pesticides, fertilizers, and manure, or leaching of nitrogen into groundwater. The fate of dissolved contaminants will eventually find their way into lakes, rivers or the ocean. The agricultural sector is by far the biggest user of fresh water. Pesticide risk has been increasing on agricultural lands in Canada, although the majority of agricultural land is still considered to be at low or very low risk. In the Prairies, the risk is considered to be low but, this region has the highest percentage of agricultural land treated with herbicides and fungicides.
