With the massive increase in the cost of fertilizers, moving to a self-sustaining agroecosystem can significantly reduce fertilizer and pesticide costs, while increasing long term yield and stability.
With correct plant nutrition and microbiology, plants can become completely resistant to disease and many pests, allowing your farm to have healthier plants produce higher quality produce.
A focus on biological systems allows plants to be supplied with correct nutrients, hence leading to higher quality produce full of nutrients.
Our focus on biological systems within agroecosystems allows us to build soil organic matter quickly and effectively, allowing you to reap the benefits of highly fertile soils.
Soil Organic Matter (SOM) contributes amazing benefits to soils, including increasing water holding capacity, cation exchange capacity, microbial activity, nutrient recycling and soil structure, and inhibits toxins, pH change and Redox change.
Overall, increasing SOM is the best way to improve soil fertility. Regardless of your farming system, soil types or climate, Agresol can assist you in building SOM.
Soil Organic Carbon can hold 7x its weight in water! Meaning that a simple 2.5% increase in SOC could almost double your plant available water!
What would it mean to your farm if you could hold TWICE the amount of water?
Soil Organic Carbon has a massive ability to hold onto plant nutrients. In fact, it has double the ability then most clays. This means that more of the fertiliser you apply will be captured by the soil, and find it’s way to the plant.
Studies have shown that soils rich in soil organic carbon achieve greater yields. It has been shown that yields can increase upward of 15%.
With greater yields, and lower input costs profits are set to increase when soils have greater amounts of SOC.
