Soil Aid, applied in the spring, rejuvenates the soil by stimulating the biological activity, restoring ecological balance. This porous soil will have more available nutrients and an ability to trap and store moisture.Our customers report an increase in production and quality after using Soil Aid.
Due to global warming, less and less fresh water is available for food production. That means one of the most important benefit of using Soil Aid is the huge reduction of irrigation water and better use of natural rainfall. Numerous field trials using electronic moisture meters and also gypsum blocks have shown water consumption can be reduced 30% – 50%, and dry land trials show crop yields improvements of 12% – 28%.
This is only a part of the big picture. Soil Aid also plays an important roll in soil reclamation by aerating the soil allowing moisture to leach dissolved salts (Sodium and magnesium sulfates usually called alkali) below the root zone.
It’s unique formula has no equal for improving soil structure. Following the very first application and each successive application you will note an improvement in soil structure as it becomes soft, mellow, more permeable, easier to till with less fuel. It loosens compacted, tight soil and allows better moisture penetration and retention. Water needs are dramatically reduced. This reduction of irrigation translates into huge energy savings, with no loss of production. As an added benefit, customers report that there is generally a considerable increase in production and quality.
Soil-Aid improves the uptake of fertilizer, increases the production of the sulfur-oxidizing bacteria, thiobacilli, and much more. This allows for a reduction in fertilizer inputs. It also has a neutralizing effect on the soil pH. This releases phosphorous and many trace minerals that weren’t previously available to the plants. Soil analysis after harvest have shown more available nutrient carryover where Soil-Aid was used.
