Soil Amendments

Naturally Improve Soil 
 
SoilBiotics Soil Amendments include products that utilize naturally occurring humic matter or humates, which were formed through the chemical and biological humification of plant and animal matter over millions of years. Humates are recognized by many in the sustainable agriculture movement as one of the most productive inputs available to growers. They have the ability to chemically bond with nutrients in the soil for increased absorption by the plant. In addition, they increase the permeability of plant cells which has been shown to both increase nutrient uptake and decrease stress on plants throughout the growing season. The overall effect is substantially increased yields. In addition, there are SoilBiotics Soil Amendments that are formulated from unique combinations of beneficial microbes to provide biological improvements in the soil.
 
 
 

Soil Boost

Conventional and Organic Use
SoilBiotics Soil Boost is an organic dry, granular Humic product that is used to help improve both the physical and biological makeup of soil. It is broadcast applied either pre-plant and post-harvest as a part of a comprehensive soil improvement and maintenance program. This product may be blended with most quality dry fertilizers, and may be used in conventional and organic programs. A physical compatibility test is recommended.
 
Features:
  • Helps the soil loosen and crumble, increasing aeration of soil as well as soil workability
  • Prevents soil cracking, and reduces surface water runoff and soil erosion
  • Increases water holding capacity of soil and helps resist drought
  • Increases both organic and mineral substances essential to plant growth
  • Allows the soil to retain water soluble inorganic fertilizers in the root zones and reduces leaching
  • Has the ability to increase organic matter and CEC in the soil
  • Increases buffering properties of the soil and can be applied to most soils
 
Benefits:
  • Improves the biological structure of the soil by helping to neutralize both acid and alkaline soils which regulate the pH value of the soil
  • Improves and optimizes the uptake of nitrogen and other nutrients and water by plants
  • Promotes the conversion of nutrient elements (N, P, K, and trace elements) into forms available to plants
  • May enhance micronutrient uptake because of the chelating effect
