The Economy of Natural Soil Biology
Soil biology provides a background of billions of microbes, mostly friendly, to the plant in every ounce of healthy soil. Mycorrhizal fungi make up about 80% or more of the weight and biomass of all the beneficial microbes in the soil.
Big Water Savings Over the Long Term
Lower Landscape Maintenance Costs
Environment Friendly—Real “Green” Technology
Zero Nitrates Runoff
Better Soil Stability and Plant Durability
Using synthetic fertilizers takes a lot of time, effort and luck to get the “prescription” for a landscape just right. The timing, weather and type of plants and soils are all critical factors in determining the best “dose” of fertilizers. These synthetic, water soluble fertilizers are not always effective at the time of application – they may not be exactly what the plant needs at that particular time.
This is where the economy of biology comes in. The existing soil microbial community (the Soil Food Web) is able to provide and time nutrient availability to the plants naturally. When the plants need and ask for nutrients, the soil microbes are there to deliver. Developing this healthy team of soil microbes starts with building populations of mycorrhizae and beneficial bacterium, protozoa and nematodes. This “world beneath our feet” will provide a self-sustaining source of rich foods for plants.
Over time, you will have a self-regulating system that works naturally to provide the food that plants need at the correct time, in the correct amounts, with minimal effort from you and your staff. No more guessing about fertilizer application, timing and rates. By adding mycorrhizae to your landscapes, the biology you’ve built in the soil will naturally take care of your landscape. This means better looking landscapes, less stress on you, your staff, your projects, and more profits.
