Cotton Treated with TerraPro


From the Desk of Michael Martin Meléndrez - Managing Member of Soil Secrets LLC:

Check this out.  

I visited a cotton grower in Texas this past week who wanted me to visit his fields and see the success he was having using Agriculture Grade TerraPro.  He stopped watering in early September, using buried drip irrigation, but the field treated with our TerraPro's Supramolecular Humic Acids has continued to grow and produce a higher percentage of cotton than the field treated with just EndoMaxima (mycorrhizal spores).  Both areas were treated with EndoMaxima and the field showing the main production increase is the TerraPro treated field where he used about 850 pounds per acre of the granulated product.  

The following photos show me standing in the field, using the oil battery tanks in the background as reference.  Note that one photo shows both fields side by side, same seed type, same planting date and same irrigation timing.  The only difference is the TerraPro!

Fertilizers formulated for alkaline soils of the Southwest

Recently I was in an Albuquerque retail nursery where a fertilizer was being sold that stated it was formulated for alkaline soils of the Southwest.  It contained high levels of iron and sulfur, plus the N, P and K major nutrients.  Do any of the readers care to comment on this type of product?    Pros, Cons, etc.  I have my take on it, but I'll entertain what you want to say about it.  Michael Martin Meléndrez

Soil Health: Level 2 - Description of Terms (Carbon Compounds)

The  Labile Carbon  is also known as the 'Rapid Cycling Carbon' and its composed of all the Soil Organic Matter that is dead and actively decomposing.  It's benefit to the soil is that it provides a source for minerals that are being recycled as potential plant nutrients, so in a sense it's Nature's fertilizer.  Active Carbon   also known as Reactive Carbon is more complex than the Labile Carbon in that its composed of all the dead and actively decomposing organic matter plus all the living soil microbial community that will eventually die and begin decomposing.   For example, the hyphae of mycorrhizae only live about 5 to 7 days before they die and start to decompose, while the fungus organism itself may live far longer.  Recalcitrant Carbons   are the Humic substances made up of complex organic chemistry, some of which is inert and some of which is very reactive and are powerful biologics, such as the Humic Acids.  Recalcitrant Humic substances are known in la

Characterization of Humic Substances

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
