New Dealer

Soil Secrets has another new Dealer offering our products to Agriculture. The Dune Company of Yuma Arizona and the Dune Company of Imperial Valley California

Many good things are happening to New Mexico's fast growing Soil Ecology company called Soil Secrets LLC.  From its humble beginnings as a compost and soil amendment company manufacturing products   sold   through its parent company the Trees That Please Nursery in Los Lunas and a dozen other retail nurseries and retail stores in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas, to  developing the best molecular biology products in the industry.  Soil Secrets is  now known for being the industry leader when it comes to fixing soils and our products are requested by mine reclamation engineers, design build contractors and the world of agriculture.  Soil Secrets has taken the terms Humic Acid and Mycorrhizal fungi and perfected the quality and efficacy of those products to a standard never seen before.  The Dune Company is now on board with Soil Secrets and will offer our science to the farmers in the lower Colorado - Yuma - Gila River Valley as well as the huge Imperial Valley of California.  We at Soil Secrets and Soil Secrets Worldwide are excited to welcome on board the Dune Company.

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

Pecan Associations with Mycorrhizae

It could be true if you were in a riparian area of Texas where Pecan grow naturally that the specific species of Ecto Mycorrhizae could be air born and therefore capable of inoculating a tree.    However I’ve personally seen orchards in that region of Texas that did not have a mycorrhizal infection and suffered nutrient update inhibition.  Once we inoculated the trees with  the proper species of mycorrhizal fungi  the trees rapidly begin to benefit from the infection.    In working with a company in Mexico that has the majority market share in agriculture for the distribution of fertilizers and biomimetic materials such as mycorrhizal products, we’ve seen the same thing.    I recall a conversation with a pecan grower in Texas about 15 years ago while I was attending the Texas Organic Farming conference, where the grower noticed that trees across the road from his orchard growing in the nearby river flood plain did not show zinc nutrient inhibition.   He was curious why his trees had
