Soil rebuilders have the ability to improve the productivity of crops and even livestock. Trials have yielded positive results in many areas including cattle for both beef and dairy, sugar cane, citrus trees, vineyards, golf courses and a range of fruits, vegetables and melons. This simple step can make your crops more productive with increased yields. Use less water and inputs by making your plants healthier from the roots up.
Soil nutrients are the vitamins, minerals and bacteria that soil needs to sustain life. Traditionally, farmers relied on rain to naturally provide these ingredients to the soil. As crops are expanded to keep up with a growing demand, however, the natural elements are not always able to keep up. The nutrients in soil will gradually become depleted, resulting in smaller crops that are not as robust. Conditioners and fertilizers are vital to the health of soil. Bacteria in the soil are necessary to help establish plants and keep them growing. Adding soil nutrients in the form of soil rebuilders can help you return the soil to the healthy condition it requires.
In addition to providing necessary nutrients, soil rebuilders also suppress disease, help the plants convert nutrients and improve the soils ability to retain water. Less fertilizer is required and the plants will stay healthy for longer, allowing you more time to harvest.
The nitrogen process is vital to plant development. Earthworms are an important part of this process, but it can be helped along with a soil rebuilder. Adding humic acid to the soil along with organic matter and nitrogen will help strengthen roots for stronger plants. As the years go by and crops are grown in the soil, these essential nutrients will be depleted to feed the crops. A successful farmer will add them back into the soil.
Crop rotation allows a field time to recover, and there are crops that can be grown specifically to help return some nutrients to the field. However, the fastest and most effective way to restore soil to a healthy condition that can sustain life is to add soil rebuilders. These compounds will add not only necessary humic acid but they will also provide the bacteria that plants need to find and absorb the nutrients that are in the soil.
There are many benefits to using soil rebuilders. Healthier crops that are strong and robust do not require as much water and are less susceptible to insects. This makes them less expensive to grow and maintain. The healthier plant will keep its fruit longer, allowing the farmer more time to fully complete the harvest. When growing turf for livestock, the rich nutrients found in the healthier grass will be transferred to the growing cattle. The livestock will also be healthier, providing higher yields through the years. The greatest benefit of soil rebuilders is that they are safe to use, even around children and animals.
