Why Biological Farming?
Reduce Inputs. Increase Yields.
It’s no secret to the American Farmer that our input costs have risen substantially over the past decade. Fertilizers, chemicals and farm fuel have hit an all time high; and making a profit on the farm is becoming a tougher proposition than ever before.
In response, farmers across the country are searching for new technologies and creative product development that will help them stay in business and make the most profit they can on every acre they farm. Changes in farming practices have become an absolute necessity. Many farmers have shifted their thinking from just strictly yield and production to, “How much net profit can we make on the crops that we farm?”
“Every farmer in this country needs to address the biologicals in his soil if he wants to make the most profit from every acre he farms.”

Current farming practices are contributing less than 3% of our total inputs toward doing anything that actually improves our native soils. Many of our tillage methods, chemicals and fertilizers are actually working against us. Years and years of continuing the same practices have left many of our soils biologically depleted and many of our nutrients tied-up and unavailable to the plant.
Since everything we apply to our farm ground must go through a biological process in order to work, doesn’t it make sense to include an input that maximizes the biological activity in the soil?
The chemicals and fertilizers you apply to your farm ground will always work more effectively when there is a healthy biological foundation in place. It is also essential for accessing the vast stores of nutrients that reside in our native farm ground.
If you haven’t already, we recommend asking yourself two questions:
- How do I make those Soil Bound nutrients more available?
- What am I doing to help mellow my soils and improve my plants root structure?
At Pro-Soil Ag Solutions we don’t have all the answers, but have shown time and again that we can help the farmer improve his soil’s biological health, thereby allowing more complete conversion and uptake of nutrients.
The farmer gets more bang for his fertilizer buck and gradually reduces his inputs. Since efficiencies are improved, you make more net profit by lowering operational costs per acre!
