How Crops Benefit From Robust Soil Microbial Populations

556 views

Published on

We believe that crops grown on soil with optimal biology will yield more abundantly. Soil biology is required for minerals to be released for plant absorption, and abundant bacterial populations are required to achieve abundant fungal populations. Fall soil regeneration applications can build key soil biological and microbial populations faster than any other method. Complete video presentation here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtV1s1mPvmQ

Learn why microbial populations are crucial to the success of your crop, how to attend to the microbial life in your soil, what you can do to start reaping the benefits from a lively microbial population next season, and how improving soil health can address:
• Disease carryover
• Soil compaction
• Lack of crop vigor
• Lack of crop response to nutrient applications
• Undigested crop residue

How Crops Benefit From Robust Soil Microbial Populations

  1. 1. HOW CROPS BENEFIT FROM ROBUST SOIL MICROBIAL POPULATIONS A Webinar Hosted by AEA Featuring John Kempf
  2. 2. We believe
 crops that are grown on soil with optimal biology will yield more abundantly.
  3. 3. Soil biology is required for minerals to be released for plant absorption
  4. 4. Abundant bacterial populations are required to achieve abundant fungal populations.
  5. 5. In most soils, biology is suppressed by fertilizer application and tillage practices
  6. 6. Without biology, undigested crop residue hosts diseases over winter.
  7. 7. Microbial inoculants are the greatest ROI application Soil becomes compacted without microbial life
  8. 8. Without biology, nutrient applications are less effective
  9. 9. Without biology crops don’t have the energy and vigor required for a robust yield
  10. 10. How do I incorporate biology into the soil?
  11. 11. Microbiome regeneration applications in fall regenerate soil faster than any other applications
  12. 12. With a synergistic stack of broad biostimulant and multi-species bacterial inoculant This product is intended for use according to an approved organic system plan. All materials comply with the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) rules and other international bio-organic regulations for certified organic crop production. Verify with your certifier before using. Disclaimer: AEA products are sold “as is” and all warranties, express or implied, are disclaimed.

Total Nitrogen (N)...............................1% 1% Water Soluble Organic Nitrogen Soluble Potash (K2 O).........................3% Magnesium (Mg).............................0.5% Information regarding the contents and levels of metals in this product is available on the internet at http://www.aapfco.org/metals.htm Guaranteed analysis: 1-0-3 Density: 10.5 lbs. per gallon at 68° F Volume: 1 gallon (3.78L) Application rates and timing Rejuvenate is a blend of molasses and humic acid. It is used to promote microbiology, and to speed up decomposition of crop residue and improve soil tilth. This product is intended for soil applications and should only be used according to manufacturer’s instructions. Spray on cover crops before incorporation at a rate of 2 gallons per acre. Spray on crop residues at a rate of 3 gallons per acre as a supplement to a regular fertilizer program. For soil with little or no residue or cover at a rate of 6-8 quarts per acre. For heavier residue cover such as corn or beans, apply 2-3 gallons per acre. For soils low in microbial activity, add a biological inoculant. For fruit and vegetable production, rates may be increased to apply up to 5 gallons per acre. Handling: Store in cool dry area out of direct sunlight. This product has been tested to store safely down to 35°F. Crystallization or sedimentation may occur below 35°F or above 95° F. Shake or stir before use, especially when near empty to dissolve the residue on the bottom of the drum/bottle. Do not pre-mix or store in diluted form. Always use product within 8 hours of diluting. All foliar sprays perform best when applied early morning or late afternoon. When tank mixing: A jar test is recommended: Prepare a small amount of the proposed mix and allow it to stand in a glass jar over night observing for signs of incompatibility. Ideally, a sample of the test mix should then be sprayed on a small area of the target crop and observed for 3 to 4 days for any phytotoxic effects. Agitation is the key to usability of this product. AEA products involve tiny particles which are far too small to clog filters, however if they are inadequately diluted or agitated before and during application there is a possibility of problems with spray equipment. Consider using an eductor nozzle to agitate prior to use. Compatibility and/or performance cannot be guaranteed when combined with other products.
