Expected Results 1. Increase of root weight 2. Encourages a deeper root zone 3. Increases the biological activity within the soil 4. Increases in nitrogen and overall health of the soil 5. Increases of organic matter content in the soil 6. Greener crops, more vivid colors, more bountiful flowers
Expected Results 6. Increases BRIX of Sugar in leaf and fruit 7. Increases protein in crops 8. Increases yield of harvested material 9. Increases soil quality (compaction) 10. Reduces fertilizer and pesticide use 11. Reduces leaching of nutrients 12. Decreases watering requirements
T HE SCIENCE OF OPTIMIZING SOIL
To optimize soil health Manage all 4 groups Neglect any group = Failure Soil is predominantly 4 components
To Optimize Soil Health Manage These 3 Components Managing Soil Health Nutrient Component Maintain mineral balance (Ca,Mg,Na,K & other micronutrients & salts) Nutrient Component Maintain mineral balance (Ca,Mg,Na,K & other micronutrients & salts) Biological Component Manage living part of soil Physical Component Appropriate irrigation, aeration and compaction of soil
Check Water Physical Component Manage irrigation times, total dissolved solids Physical Component Manage irrigation times, total dissolved solids
Check Air Physical Component Appropriate aeration and compaction of the soil. Soil biology will perform this function when active and present in recommended numbers. Physical Component Appropriate aeration and compaction of the soil. Soil biology will perform this function when active and present in recommended numbers.
Check Soil Mineral Matter Content Nutrient Component Maintain mineral balance Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Salt and other micronutrients. Balance and coordinate with fertilizer use. Nutrient Component Maintain mineral balance Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Salt and other micronutrients. Balance and coordinate with fertilizer use.
Balance Minerals Adjust for Specific Crop By bringing Ca, Mg, Na, and K into equilibrium, we will automatically adjust pH in a soil system suitable for plant growth. - Charles Walters Eco Farm Calcium 68 – 70% Magnesium % Potassium 2 - 5% Sodium < 3% Adjust for site-specific issues
Analyze Organic Matter Biological Component Manage living part of soil (microbiology & organic matter)
Use Vega-tare to build your Organic Matter Vega-tare harvest-to- harvest is a cold processed, enzymatically digested, fresh food soil amendment and plant food, that acts as an all- natural bio-stimulant.
The Soil Food Web Feeding microbes builds humus in the soil The oil content of Vega-tare allows it to stay where applied.
The Program Understand the uniqueness of the site Take soils test Soil Food Web and minerals analysis Check water quality and address impurities Check aeration and develop treatment Adjust mineral content, adjust for specific crop Implement regular Vega-tare and reduced fertilization program Periodic re-testing and re-balancing E Road Lacygne, KS Toll-Free: Fax: DISTRIBUTED BY:
Vega-tare harvest to harvest
Application: Stimulation of compost
Application: Deep root feeding
Summary: Adjust to the uniqueness of the site Balance soils for crop and manage mineral content Adjust to water quality & aerate Implement a low-nitrogen / low-watering program Reduce use of pesticides & fertilizers Use Vega-tare harvest to harvest as a bio- stimulant Periodically re-test and re-balance
