Soil amendments are foundational for soil conditioning to correct deficiencies and sustain soil health. Certain minerals also allow for the better uptake by crops of other key minerals. For example, calcium is the most important mineral for overall mineral uptake. It creates cell structure in plants, which in turn gives the body of life to the plant and consequentially allows for the intake of other minerals. Applying calcium is a neutralizing value to first correct the soil. Once the soil becomes neutral, because of the plant absorbing the calcium to create the plant cell structure, it can then replenish itself with vital macro and micro nutrients, creating a healthy crop. The calcium is what builds the plant structure, the added macro and micro nutrients, as well as the carbon, is the energy bank to grow a successful crop. They create a full nutrient bank with sufficient minerals to carry it through its full cycle of growing.
Adding mineral trace elements into custom blends gives us the ability to give your soil exactly what it needs, as opposed to generic fertilisers which may be ineffective and inefficient in meeting the unique needs of any given soil.
From soil testing and analysis we are able to draw clear conclusions as to the specific minerals your soil requires. That vital information allows us to custom design mineral fertilisers which incorporate the critical minerals you need.
