In today's post, we continue to showcase the effectiveness of our esteemed Pongamia 5781-A tree variety developed by KESSLER. We are pleased to share a photo depicting the outcomes of tests conducted on this variety using different soil types. We aim to highlight the Pongamia 5781-A genetics significant benefits and potential role in the energy transition process by serving as an excellent source of low-carbon feedstock for the fuel and energy industry. Additionally, we want to emphasize its suitability in addressing various issues related to global warming.
Please take a moment to examine the final photo from our test (taken by the ARO - The state of Israel), which showcases the performance of the 5781-A variety in three distinct soil types. From left to right:
We have the soil from central Israel in the Meditareanien climate.
A pot with mixed soil - commonly used in gardens (rich in minerals).
And the degraded soil from the Negev desert.
The test results clearly indicate that the 5781-A variety thrives in all soil conditions, with its optimal performance observed in degraded soil. The photo exhibits healthy, lush leaves and impressive plant growth. It demonstrates that this genetic strain holds great promise for the natural reclamation of degraded and desert lands, primarily due to its exceptional ability to fix nitrogen in its root system. Importantly, this genetic variety yields the highest amount of inedible Pongamia oil and contributes significantly to generating vast amounts of carbon credits.
Furthermore, it is noteworthy that producing low-carbon energy sources utilizing the 5781-A variety aligns with critical environmental processes such as reforestation and land reclamation. These initiatives play a crucial role in safeguarding our planet's well-being.
