Pro-Soil products can help you shift the microbiological equilibrium to enhance soil quality and the yield and quality of crops.
Crop growth and development are closely related to the nature of the soil microflora, especially those in close proximity to plant roots, i.e. the rhizosphere. Thus, it will be difficult to overcome the limitations of conventional agricultural technologies without controlling soil microorganisms. This particular tenet is further reinforced because the evolution of most forms of life on earth and their environments are sustained by microorganisms. Most biological activities are influenced by the state of these invisible, minuscule units of life. There fore, to significantly increase food production, it is essential to develop crop cultivars with improved genetic capabilities (i.e. greater yield potential, disease resistance, and nutritional quality)and with a higher level of environmental competitiveness, particularly under stress conditions (i.e. low rainfall, high temperatures, nutrient deficiencies and aggressive weed growth).
Low agricultural production efficiency is closely related to a poor coordination of energy conversion which, in turn, is influenced by crop physiological factors, the environment, and other biological factors including soil microorganisms. The soil and rhizosphere microflora can accelerate the growth of plants and enhance their resistance to disease and harmful insects by producing bio-active sub stances. These microorganisms maintain the growth environment of plants, and may have primary effects on both soil quality and crop quality. A wide range of results are possible depending on their predominance and activities at any one time. Nevertheless, there is a growing consensus that it is possible to attain maximum economic crop yields of high quality, at higher net returns, without the application of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Until recently, this was not thought to be a very likely possibility using conventional agricultural methods. However, it is important to recognize that the best soil and crop management practices to achieve a more sustainable agriculture will also enhance the growth, numbers and activities of beneficial soil micro organisms that, in turn, can improve the growth, yield and quality of crops. In essence, soil quality is the very foundation of a more sustainable agriculture.
