The BBC Food Chain

Dear Ruth and Beatrice,

I heard your broadcst on Fungi research at the Hutton Institute on 14th July, 2022.

As an independant research group we have researched and perfected over many years the use of specific fungi and bacteria to produce food.on both
the gardening and agricultural scale. This surely is one of the most useful results of fungi research.
In this day and age with food distribution problems and food insecurity that are facing the world this science is becoming increasingly relevant especially
as it produces an organic fertiliser and soil conditioner that produces 300% increases in yields in both gardening and farming applications.
I know Pete Iannetta of the Hutton Institute and I will be writing to him regarding the development of our technology.

We can render all manner of waste products safely into optimum fertiliser in 90 days.
This includes even human effluent and the animal wastes that are currently being released into the rivers of the United Kingdom untreated.
This is an un-precedented disaster for the United Kingdom.
The world is facing an unprecedented disaster with the increase in price and scarcity of chemical fertiliser.
In both the UK and the developing countries we can produce food on what is normally considered marginal or unproductive land with our HH system of food production. Our system does not require any chemical ferilisers, pesticides or herbicides and no external inputs sourced outside of the farm. By the very nature of improved soil conditions and nutrient holding capacity it produces food with a far higher nutritional content than conventionally produced food.
The unique fertiliser making system that we produce can be operated by anyone who may not even be trained in Agricultural science. All they need is simple training on how to recycle their own wastes employing the right fungi and bacteria. This will transform any soil type into a productive soil type and their soils will go on improving and producing with this introduction of fungi and bacteria as the years go by rather than becoming less productive via the effects of soil exhaustion as is the case with chemical agriculture. They will be able to grow food with this equipment, which has no moving parts and requires no electrical or solar power, and start food production where it may have previously proved impossible. It is not expensive and each set of units has a life of 25 years+
Also in these times of climate change our system is even more relevant for people with food where there are extreme arid conditions our system holds 30 times more moisture in the ground than with ploughing in conventional  agricultural systems.
We have revived our MOU with Save the Children, in Africa, that was given to us at the end of 2019 when the COVID pandemic started to put a hold on so many operations.
In the light of these circumstances, we hope that you find this subject interesting enough to give us an interview.
With best regards
Richard Higgins
