Want to get started with biological farming, but don’t know where to start? Here’s our series of educational articles to get you up and running.
How soil biology differs across soil types and what you can do about it. When you buy a rural property, what are you getting? Soil.
Exploring the dynamic relationship between soil microbes and plants, and why healthy plants start with biologically active soil.
An overview of the classes of soil microbes and their role in supporting healthy plants.
How soil biostimulants improve mineral uptake and help grow nutrient-dense food. Today’s food is often calorie-dense but low in nutrients.
Activating beneficial microbial life to solve growing problems. Microbial biostimulants contain substances and/or micro-organisms which…
Microbes work with the seasons.
Soil microbial populations change with temperature and the seasons. By aligning our farming practices to these changes we can more accurately anticipate and provide for what plants need.
The science behind breaking down organic matter.
One of the key roles microbes play on the farm or orchard is the decomposition of organic matter…
How microbe-stimulating foliar sprays support plant resilience. Plant leaves are critical for photosynthesis – the process that provides the plant with energy…
Why maintaining gut health for calf immunity and growth is our #1 calf rearing tip. It’s not surprising that calves (particularly dairy calves)…
Today’s food is often calorie dense but nutrient low. Low nutrient-density in our foods is often blamed for human health issues such as obesity.
Silage: A simple way to preserve surplus spring pasture for feeding animals when feed shortages occur. The ensiling process relies on the activity of acetic…
Pasture hay is usually made in early summer from the excess feed on livestock farms, whereas other types of hay are made from crops such as cereal…
Nitrogen is an essential element for plant growth as it is a key component of their proteins and DNA. Its essential nature is reflected in it being the first element…
Using microbial biology to control plant fungal disease. Biofungicides use microbes as the active ingredient for managing plant fungal diseases.
Using potassium bicarbonate for safe, organic powdery mildew treatment. Powdery mildew is a fungal disease that affects a wide range of plant crops.
Tips for healthy rumen function during animal stress. A healthy functioning rumen is home to billions of micro-organisms, including a wide range of bacteria…
