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.

Understanding the Importance of Cation Exchange Capacity

I was recently asked to provide a simplified explanation on the importance of Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) values. My Response:  CEC is the ability of a soil to hold onto plant nutrients.   The finer the particle size the higher CEC value, generally speaking. For example sand particles are course and visible to the naked eye, where as clay particles are fine and are not visible to the naked eye. So clay will have a higher CEC value than sand. It is obvious to most of us that sand cannot hold onto water or nutrients as well as a soil with a finer texture. Therefore, soils rich in Clay and Loam size particles are universally recognized as being better for farming - CEC explains this.  The numerical value for CEC represents how much nutrition can be held by a given amount of soil. For example one pound of a clay loam soil with a CEC value of 20 will hold 4 times as many nutrients as a sandy soil with a CEC value of 5. 20/4 = 5 .  It's all about math, for example Nitrogen in

Food Nutrient Density and Why our BIOpack is so important

Can you  tell the difference?  The first image shows a field that was not sprayed with your Consortium Soil Probiotic called BIOpack.  The second image field was sprayed.  Look at the difference in color and the overall biomass increase   the treated field.    BIOpack is ATCC Certified (American Type Culture Collection) and  USDA  Biobased Certified.  All 20 species included in the BIOpack are exact species that will perform a known Mode of Action which will provide a specific benefit to the crop you are growing.   For example if your lawn, trees, or crop are not getting enough iron pulled out of the soil to satisfy the needs of the crop or plant, than BIOpack can fix that problem by provided a microbe for that particular nutrient.   Bottomline is that BIOpack will improve the Nutrient Density of any crop you grow as it improves the solutioning of the mineral element in the soil from a normally not water soluble into a water solution so the plant can drink it.   This is important

Growing Pecan Trees in Western Alkaline Soil

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
