History of Agriculture

In nature, fertile soil is created by the breakdown of minerals containing trace elements and the accumulation of organic matter, processed by micro organisms and weather.

Natural mineral particles act as parent material for soil formation. Although minerals may naturally be drawn to the surface current growing expectations and practices can deplete soil of essential trace minerals and micro nutrients.

Using minerals to rejuvenate soil is not a new idea.  History has documented the benefits of silt rich in nutrients. For thousands of years, in ancient cultures, silt was taken from the bottom of rivers and used  to cultivate crops. Today this practice is not as practical due to contamination issues and damage to eco systems.

.
This stubborn stump, cut down in a backyard, was slow to start decomposing, so we added some of our Compost Rock Flour TM and mushrooms soon began to flourish.

Adding minerals to or with compost during application is the most beneficial method for nutrient uptake. With this approach lesser amounts of minerals may be used in comparison to field application. This is a result of microbes interacting with root systems making the nutrients to be biologically available. Minerals require microbes for activation and plant absorbtion.

Compost Rock FlourTM is a formulated blend which contains beneficial microbes for inoculation purposes. This activator may be added at a rate of 1-3 % by volume to compost to accelerate the conversion of organic to humus.
