With soil pH being one of the primary drivers of fertility levels and crop performance, understanding how to mitigate those effects in commercial production has significant value. Here is a brief synopsis of some of the challenges with soil alkalinity and how soil carbon products can provide economic solutions.
Crop residue breakdown is a very important annual event in which left-over organic materials from the harvested plants are consumed by the natural processes of decomposition. It’s important because the living matter that gets broken down will release macro and micro nutrients back into the soil where you will be planting again next year. In addition to the chemical benefits, there are also physical benefits to ensuring there is a layer of organic material left on your fields to decompose. This layer also acts as a barrier that protects your soil from erosion in high winds or heavy rain/snow events.
Humic substances have many benefits beyond just what is listed on product labels. They are an integral part of building a healthy soil system that contributes to developing more resilient and tougher plants, often reducing the pressure of many pathogens.

Every living creature needs and loves water. No water equals no life, at least on this planet! In fact, humans are made of about 65% water, water covers about 71% of the Earth, and if you stopped drinking water, you will be 100% dead within days. Water is integral to our survival as a species, as well as all other carbon based life. You need water before you need food. You need water before you need shelter. The world needs water, and it seems to be disappearing before our eyes.
