What Is Fertilizer?
Fertilizer is any substance used to add nutrients to the soil to promote soil fertility and increase plant growth. However, not all fertilizers or amendments are made the same and not all fertilizers or amendments provide sustainable health for the soil.
Soil health relies on a balance of macronutrients and micronutrients, as well as microbial and enzymatic health. It’s vastly more complicated then simply adding nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (N-P-K) to the ground and calling it a day.
In the past, scientists once thought food only consisted of macronutrients, but have since discovered micronutrients, natural growth hormones, enzymes, antioxidants and so on. The same goes for soil health: scientists have focused almost exclusively on
N-P-K since their “discovery” in the mid-1800s. It’s this reductionist science that has us assuming we understand the chemistry of nature and soil and thinking we can solve it with a quick application of chemical fertilizers.
Chemists produced chemical and synthetic, enzymless fertilizers to increase the growth of crops, ignoring the natural advantage that enzymes and beneficial microorganisms provide to overall soil health. However, these chemical and synthetic fertilizers also
damage the soil, requiring even more fertilizer to continue to produce growth and yield. Unfortunately, as unsustainable farming and gardening practices continue, our soil is stripped of its natural health, and we depend on synthetic amendments even
more. This leads to some pretty negative consequences of chemical fertilizers.
The NatureSoil™ Advantage
Sustainable – Organic – All Natural – Superior Quality – Superior Yield
NatureSoil Products are “Living” Soils.
NatureSoil Products™ contain the full range of macro and micronutrients in forms most bioavailable to plants, along with billions of beneficial microorganisms that continue to break organic matter down into nutrient forms that plants can readily absorb. They’re gentle on both our plants and our planet.
NatureSoil Products™ are rich, dark, soft to the touch, and nearly odorless, often described as smelling slightly “earthy”.
NatureSoil Products™ contain specialized blends of decomposing organic matter, referred to as “humus”. Undigested organic particles in humus continue to break down in the soil and release valuable nutrients over time. What’s more, this residual organic matter helps the soil hold moisture, and gives the soil a soft and crumbly texture. Improved soil structure promotes root growth and nutrient absorption.
NatureSoil Products™ have been shown to contain reduced levels of contaminants and a higher saturation of nutrients than do organic materials before decomposition.
NatureSoil Products™ contain far more natural antibiotic properties against pathogens than regular soils or composts, and much greater concentrations of free enzymes and natural plant growth hormones. Our natural decomposition processes have the ability
to virtually eliminate all bacteria that are pathogenic to animals and people.
Sustainable Soil Health.
NatureSoil Products™ won’t burn seedlings or delicate foliage the way synthetic fertilizers can. It’s safe for you, your children, and pets.
NatureSoil Products™ improve soil texture, permeability, water-retention, and keeps working long past the initial application,
without waste or runoff. What’s more, research has demonstrated that some plants grown in soil which has been amended with
NatureSoil Products™ are more resistant to soil-borne diseases, such as verticillium wilt.
NatureSoil Products™ are a natural, non-toxic way to replenish the nutrients in your soil, and promote sustainable, natural soil and plant health.
NatureSoil Products™ are highly specialized blends of all natural and organic soils, providing your plants the specific nutrients they need to maintain optimal health.
NatureSoil Products™ are a healthy way to nourish your garden, and the earth. You’ll see, feel and smell the difference. Your plants will notice the difference too.
NatureSoil Products™ rely on a proven natural method that has been sustaining soil health, and the earth, for over 120 million years.
NatureSoil Products™ are 100% natural and contain no added chemical or synthetic components.
NatureSoil Products™ – Born of Nature. Back to Nature.
