Soil is one of the planet’s most complex and diverse ecosystems. The existing scientific knowledge on soil health relates directly to microorganisms, especially the ones which interact with plants.
The biological activity of these microorganisms in the soil produces many of the benefits associated with soil health. Microorganisms are more abundant in the topsoil than in the subsoil. There are more food sources in the topsoil (including plant roots and organic matter), and this is where they interact with the roots in various ways.
BIOSMART® TECH promotes soil health by contributing to its microbiome.
Mineral fertilizers have been able to support the growing global population, saving millions of hectares of natural systems and environmentally sensitive areas which have been converted for agriculture in other ways. Moreover, it is possible to reduce nutrient losses, which are harmful to air and water quality, by improving the efficiency of nutrient use, particularly nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).
Improvements in nutrient use can be assessed in the context of maintaining farming efficiency in four major areas: minimizing changes; maximizing soil cover; maximizing the presence of living, functioning roots and maximizing biodiversity.
Soil is a natural resource which is living and gives life. As the population grows, the need to produce more food increases, and so it is vital to maintain healthy and productive soil.
Although there is still a lot to learn about soil and the microorganisms present in it, gaining a better knowledge of our soils and their processes allows us to develop tools to improve soil health and consequently crop productivity.
The beneficial bacteria which exist in soil have functions including converting chemicals like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and iron into a form which crops can use.
Nutrient enhancer and biological stimulator
BIOSMART® TECH can increase, strengthen or help to revitalize the natural activities in the soil’s native microbiome. A healthy soil microbiome helps to more efficiently provide the nutrients available for plants to use, improve the soil’s physical and chemical processes, and balance the microbial population in order to better manage the effects of pathogenic microorganisms.
This technology allows increased nutrient efficiency, encouraging solubilization and assimilation in the crop. It stimulates the plant through the interaction between the root, soil and microbiome.
- Optimizes mineralization of organic matter in soil.
- Increases root mass and proliferation of absorbing roots.
- Increases the plant's stress tolerance.
- Improves nutrient availability.
- Encourages better interaction between the soil and crop.
