The higher the organic matter, the greater the
Cation-exchange capacity (CEC), and the better
the yields and nutrient density!
Most growers are looking for ways to increase
their organic matter. They try growing cover
crops, also called green manure, utilizing crop
litter, compost and mulch. Even though these
methods do work, they are not the long-term
answer for creating organic matter in the soil.
There is a much better solution!
The secret formula is:
Organic matter is CARBON, and
an interview, Dr. Christine Jones
explains that the fastest and very best way to
increase organic matter and build rich topsoil
is through carbon sequestration. Read the
article and you will know the secret of how to
greatly increase this sequestration of sugars
down into the soil.
Should we feed the plant directly with NPK or
should we utilize microorganisms to convert tied
up nutrients into available plant food?
best way to get good yields and at the same
time build the soil is to fully utilize
microorganisms. Fertilizing with NPK is not
the best way.
plant can be encouraged to manufacture large
amounts of sugar (carbon) and send it to the
soil through its roots to colonize and feed
microorganisms convert unavailable nutrients
into available plant food.
sugars secreted by the plant work like glue
to bind soil particles together, creating
air spaces and bringing structure to the
soil, eliminating soil compaction and
air flows down into the soil, nitrogen
fixing bacteria convert the N into available
Bacteria break down the chemicals and toxins
that inhibit beneficial microbes.
Bacteria remediate salts that inhibit soil
life, removing them from the root zone.
soil becomes an ideal growing environment as
aerobic bacteria, fungi and beneficial
nematodes displace anaerobic bacteria and
AG-USA is passionate about the following two
things, and believe that these two things have
the potential to revolutionize agriculture:
1. We believe that SEA MINERALS possess the
wonderful ability to help restore health and
2. We believe that CARBON SEQUESTRATION is the
most important key for building healthy soil
