    By Fito Chem

    Published Nov 30, 2020 

    Those who are dealing in farming and agriculture, understand that growing vegetables or plants is not as easy a task as it sounds. A plant is of no use if it is not healthy – growing a healthy and happy plant is a demanding job. One needs to make sure the plants are getting all the necessary minerals that they require to grow. Minerals that they absorb from the soil are most important. But as a result of today’s natural and environmental changes, the quality of soil is degrading...

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 4, 2018 

    First of all,let us understand the soil structureThe soil is a porous system. It consists of solid,liquid and gas three-phase substances... Crumb structure is often found in more porous than granular organo-mineral surface soil horizons,and provides optimal pore space for soil fertility... This is an important guarantee for the physical,chemical and biological fertility of the soil due to its high biological diversity for agricultural production... Therefore,it is the most ideal structure of the soil and an important indicator of soil fertility...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 2, 2019 

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method. Symbiotic bacteria are fungi that need to grow with plants, but do not harm plants and they are beneficial to plant growth. The symbiotic bacteria can grow together with the roots of some plants to form a special symbiont-exogenous mycorrhiza, which exchanges substances with each other through the mycorrhiza...

  • Fertility is massively impacted by heat stress. Have you ever noticed that your reproduction rate drops dramatically in the summer? Did you know that a core body temperature of 103 F can kill embryos in the first three days after breeding? That means your cows are losing their calves before you even know they are pregnant.

    "Soil fertility practices can enhance or limit crop growth and affect plant health, crop yield, and quality. Best practices for fertilizer applications are summarized by the ‘4Rs’ guideline: right source, right rate, right timing, right placement. However, dialing in the right rate, source, timing, and placement of added nutrients to optimize crop outcomes can be a challenge."
