I'm very excited to share with you this very good news, that once again demonstrates that Soil Secrets is indeed 'cutting edge' in our industry. First I'd like to cover the recent completion of testing conducted at Sandia National Laboratories on the Humic acid that we are formulating into our products. The tests were extremely revealing and educational for us, in terms of teaching us about our own product and providing us with information concerning the Humic acid fraction that's contained within the whole Humic substance of our products. This is information on the 'Characterization of Humic Substances', with data and evidence that no other commercial supplier of Humic acids can provide. Keep in mind that this is research that has never been done before and is exclusive to our company. I'm weeding through both the SANDIA REPORT and the LOS ALAMOS REPORT now, which contains several hundred pages of data, so that I can reveal to you and to all our customers some of this information. The reports themselves are for official use only of Commercial Proprietary Information.
It's common to see nutrient and water inhibition compromise the production of pecans in the arid western states, particularly where the soils are high pH, which can tie up nutrients such as zinc, iron, phosphorus and more. Keeping soils moist is also a problem because the regions were we grow pecan are not wet bottomland soils where pecan is native, but are high and dry desert soils where irrigation is essential. If the irrigation water is high in dissolved solids, the problem is made worse. There are many good things Soil Secrets can offer pecan growers that can overcome these obstacles, by improving the moisture management of the soil, improving nutrient solutioning and availability of both the native minerals as well as the purchased minerals, and improving the porosity of the soil so that water and oxygen can penetrate meters deep without the need to subsoil with machinery. How's this done? By using the power of Nature's own bio-chemical called the Carbon Matrix. Starti
Its important to understand that when you make something new, such as a formulation of Humic Acids, but you can't measure what you've made, then there's no way to know what molecular changes you are creating. In other words, it's a legitimate question to ask, are there any Humic Acid molecules left in a Humate material that was melted down with a caustic potassium or sodium hydroxide? The answer is that they can't answer the question! In our case, we can and have measured what we've formulated, which we did by performing a full characterization study of the Humic, Fulvic and Humin fractions found in all our Humic Acid formulations. This research confirmed for us that we were successful in our formulation efforts. The complex chemical analysis work was performed at both Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories over the past few years using a 'Commercial Proprietary' contract with Soil Secrets. This is not an endorsement by the National labs, only efficacious true chemical analysis research, that's unique in the industry.
