October: Soils & Products We Use

How fitting that October is dedicated to “soils & products we use” during the International Year of Soils. Most of us are out working the soil right now. Maybe you’re reading this in the tractor or combine. Maybe you’re reading this while picking pumpkins, apples, or squash. Maybe you’re reading this on your porch while enjoying the beautiful, crisp, fall weather. No matter where you are, soils play a vital role in the Earth’s ecosystem.

For example, soils helped filter yesterday’s rainwater in our fields and regulated the discharge of excess precipitation. When managed properly, soil reduces the hazard of flooding and is capable of storing large amounts of organic carbon.

Using Residuce® to recycle your 2015 crop residues can reduce your 2016 fertilizer costs with live microbes that break down crop residues. The proof in in the picture - Residuce® used on right.

I read an article the other day where the author referred to soil as earth’s living skin, providing us with resources to live such as food and shelter. So it only makes sense to use the cleanest, safest products in the industry to care for our soils.

Right now, in the midst of harvest, we really recommend applying Residuce® to improve soil tilth and seedbed establishment for the next growing season. When applied at the right time, Residuce® can accelerate plant residue breakdown and nutrient re-cycling. It’s a blend of microbes, enzymes, humates, and food sources that could lower your 2016 fertilizer inputs by making mineral nutrients available to crops more quickly.

Join us this month as we talk soil and products we use during the International Year of Soils.
