Organic Cotton in Big Lake Texas, treated with TerraPro


Here's another Proof of Concept of how Humic Acids that are bio-identical supramolecular can actually improve the soils ability to manage water to the crops advantage.   This works equally well in urban landscaping as it’s the supramolecular chemistry of these carbon rich high thermal energy molecules that actually make a soils ecology functional and habitable. These molecules have many Mechanisms of Action, including functioning as chemical shuttles and participating as Oxygen electron donor and acceptor systems helping with microbial respiration in the soil.   

Organic Cotton in Big Lake Texas, treated with TerraPro: 

On the left in the photo below is the part of the field treated with 450 pounds of TerraPro per acre.  


Treatment was done after the cotton germinated and was a few inches high.  The granular TerraPro was surface broadcast and not incorporated into the soil, as the site has buried drip irrigation.  The right hand side of the field was not treated with TerraPro, but both sides 
were inoculated with EndoMaxima mycorrhizal product.  

The first image below with Anna standing in the field show how much larger 
and healthier the TerraPro treated field is


 as compared to the non-treated.  


Plus the non-treated field suffered from drought as the water was cut off 2 months earlier on  both fields, the main reason why the non-treated field did not grow as much.  TerraPro gave a two month moisture advantage to the treated field.

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 MelĂ©ndrez

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
