Our products have over 40 micronutrients. Surprisingly, most are minerals and carbon molecules which, to plants, act like vitamins. Our micronutrients nurture the plant directly as well as indirectly by working as a prebiotic and probiotic for the soil microbe population. Farmers often ask how feeding microbes can help increase crop health. In terms of nutrition, the micronutrients help bacteria populations to grow. When nitrogen is added to the soil, the growth of bacteria populations keeps nitrogen bound in the soil, thereby preventing it from dissipating. The benefit comes from the bacterial carbon to nitrogen ratio, which is higher than that of any other organism, namely 1 part nitrogen to 5 parts carbon. When these bacteria cells die, they slowly release the nitrogen back into the root system.
