Achieving the right biology enhances these key functions:

Disease protection - minimizes to eliminate the need for pesticides
Nutrient immobilization – reduces leaching of nutrients from your soil
Nutrient availability - optimal forms in the right place at the right time
Decomposition of toxins - removes harmful residues
Root health, root depth, water retention, aerobic conditions in soil and improved soil
- less watering needed, lessen your dependence on fertilizers



If you don’t know what organisms are present in your soil and on your plants’ leaves, then much of your management is being left to chance!
