What is Bactifeed
It is a biological soil system that has been certified to USDA organic standards by GOCA, CCOF and ICS. It is a purely natural, biological product. No chemical permits are required to use it
What its not
It is not a fertilizer. It is not a herbicide. It is not an insecticide. No chemicals whatsoever
What does it do
It increases soil microbial activity, which enhances a plant’s ability to uptake nutrients and promotes more vigorous root growth. This means you get more efficent use of your fertilizer (natural or synthetic) which equals using less and/or getting more out of what you do use. It also naturally increases the soil’s water holding capacity and increases the rate of water intake. Utilizing rain water and/or irrigation water more efficiently, also equals using less and/or getting more out of what you use. In short, it keeps money in your pocket by maximizing soil productivity and/or reducing input costs. It helps soils with problems due to poor drainage, salt build-up, and alkali areas. It also helps heal the destruction of natural soil structure due to synthetic fertilizers, and other chemicals.
How does it do it
By increasing the number of microbes and naturally gearing them to metabolize the major nutrients such as N-P-K; it improves the productivity of your soil. The microbes also produce enzymes, a benefit to the roots in your soil. The improvements in soil structure, water holding capacity and water intake are all due to the natural acids produced by the microbes. These acids are biological surfactants, These biological surfactants coat, every soil particle they contact. This coating action increases the space between all soil particles allowing better aeration and water penetration. This coating action also helps prevent chemical reactions that tie up valuable nutrients and water, leaving more available for plants’ roots. This promotes root growth and increases the efficiency in which roots can absorb the nutrients and water.
