Benefits of using SoilBiotics Organic 2r – Soil Boost:
Physically improves the structure of soil:
- Helps the soil loosen and crumble, and thus increases 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 thus helps resist drought.
- Darkens the color of the soil and thus helps absorption of the sun’s energy.
- Soil becomes rich in both organic and mineral substances essential to plant growth.
- Soil retains water soluble inorganic fertilizers in the root zones and reduces leaching.
Improves the biological structure of soil:
- Neutralizes both acid and alkaline soils; regulates the pH-value of soils.
- Improves and optimizes the uptake of nutrients and water by plants.
- Increases buffering properties of soil.
- Enhances the uptake of nitrogen by plants.
- Promotes the conversion of nutrient elements (N, P, K & trace elements) into forms available to plants.
