Soil Improvement: One of the most important steps in gardening or farming of any type is soil preparation. Good soil is what we build our yards and gardens out of. A little more time and effort in this stage, will help to assure gardening efforts are successful. Along with organic matter or humus there are three primary minerals that make up soil: sand, clay, silt. The right texture of soil, organic matter,  humus, minerals, ideal soil pH, active soil microorganisms will be the best soil for growing plants.

Bamboo Charcoal
Natural Soil Enhancer

Bamboo charcoal is a 100% natural, non-toxic and environmental friendly product. Bamboo charcoal comes from pieces of moso bamboo plants, harvested after at least five years, and burned in ovens at temperatures ranging from 800 to 1200 °C leaving a very pure biochar with high adsorption qualities. It benefits environmental protection by reducing pollutant residue. It is an environmentally functional material featuring excellent absorption properties.

Due to the growth characteristics of bamboo, it molecular structure is a hexagonal structure. Millions of tiny holes are created as the plant densifies as it matures, a process taking approximately five years. It is these tiny holes that ultimately give the resulting bamboo charcoal its revolutionary abilities such as solid texture, fine porous, deodorizer and dehumidifier.

Bamboo charcoal is a good soil improvement materials, because due to its high porosity, it is very suitable to act as a carrier for soil microbes and organic nutrients, it also can enhance soil vitality to maintain a good nutritional balance and plants growth.

Bamboo charcoal able improve plants and soil quality for your lawn or garden. It is very suitable for organic gardeners who want to restore soil damaged by chemical treatments such as organic toxins (such as herbicides), providing better aeration for plants, reduce soil acidity and other benefits.

Bio-organic Compost

Foods for the Soil

The use of plant-root colonizing bacteria with plant growth-promoting activity has been proven as an efficient and environmental-friendly alternative to chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Bio-compost and Bio-control formulations prepared from endospore-forming Bacillus strains are increasingly applied due to their long shelf life, which is comparable with that of agrochemicals.

Introduction
Bio-organic Compost is a Germany Technology by using plant based organic matters and high bio available silicon plus various Bacillus strains in the composting process. In the process of composting, microorganisms break down organic matter and produce carbon dioxide, water, heat, and humus, the relatively stable organic end product. Different communities of microorganisms predominate during the various composting phases. Initial decomposition is carried out by mesophilic microorganisms, which rapidly break down the soluble, readily degradable compounds.

Bio-organic Compost enhance the soil structure with big group of good bacteria’s biodiversity such as
1. Bacillus amyloliquefaciens
2. Bacillus thuringiensis
3. Bacillus cereus
4. Bacillus oleronius
5. Bacillus subtilis
6. Bacillus shackletonii

The above Bacillus strains helps in balancing the ecological cycle within the soil. Different microbial strains have been reported effective in controlling plant pathogens. Among those, Bacillus strains have their own importance.

Pure Humic Acids

An essential component for plant growth

What is Humic acids?
Humic acids are an excellent natural and 100% organic way to provide plants and soil with a dose of essential nutrients and trace elements. Humic acids is a bio-stimulant that is derived from leonardite shale and is among the most concentrated organic material available.

Humic acids are not fertilizers. They act as a bio-stimulant for the plant. Humic acids enhance plant growth particularly biomass production and fertility of the soil. As humic acids are completely decomposed, they do not enter into nutritional competition with plants for nutrients such as for nitrogen.

Humic acids are complex organic molecules that are formed by the breakdown of organic matter. Humic acid influences soil fertility through its effect on the water-holding capacity of the soil. Humic acids make important contributions to soil stability and soil fertility leading to exceptional plant growth and micronutrient uptake.

Humic acids is an internationally recognized safety, green, effective and natural conditioner.

How does Humic acids work?
By supplying the soil with sufficient humic acid, we help to bind cations (positively charged elements). The ability to chelate positively charged multivalent ions (Mg, Ca, Fe and other “trace minerals” of value to plants) is probably the most important role of humic acids, with respect to your soil. By chelating the ions, humic acids facilitates the uptake of the ions by means of several mechanisms, one of which is preventing their precipitation (leaching through the soil). Another is the direct and positive influence on their bio-availability. It can also detoxify the soil of heavy metals. Research has shown that heavy metals can be “locked up” with the addition of humic acids.

How does Humic acids benefit your plants?
Humic acids increases nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, and seed germination. It increases the microbial activity in the soil, making it an excellent root stimulator. Humic acids increases the availability of nutrients in fertilizers and in those already existing in your soil. It will help to aerate the soil from the inside. It will also help to lower the pH of the soil to a more neutral level and will flush high levels of salts out of the root zone, all of which will help to promote better plant health and growth.

Benefits of Humic Acids:
• Humic acids has a high base exchange capacity and rich in both organic and mineral substances essential to plant growth.
• Humic Acids can loose topsoil, destroy the accumulation of salt, reduce salt content in the topsoil.
• Bind available insoluble metal ions, oxides and hydroxides, slowly releasing them to roots.
• Improve the utilization of nitrogen fertilizer.
• Enhances phosphate & Potash utilization of plants.
• Regulate soil environment pH value.
• Prevent water and nutrients losses in light, sandy soils and promote soil aggregate structure.
• Increases crop yield.

Ingredients:
Origin: USA
Appearance: Black powder
Humic Acids (Dry basis): 70% (natural content, the non-oxide nitrate solution)
Fulvic Acids (Dry basis): 15 – 20%
Ash content: 10%
Others content: A variety of mineral composition
pH: 3 – 5
Particles size: 100 – 120 mesh
Solubility: Slightly soluble in water, soluble in alkaline.

Humic Acids can be used to aquatic plants?
In terms of aquatic plants, it enhance photosynthesis, provide a variety of nutrients needed for plants and quantitative slow release of nutrients for the plants to absorb. It can also absorb ammonia and hydrogen sulfide and other substances in the water to improve water quality.

Application Rate:
For Vegetables, Fruits & All ornamentals (Potted planting): Before put the new soil into the pot, add 3 – 5% of the Humic Acids powder into the total amount of the medium mixing (Manure + Compound fertilizer + Humic Acids + Others ingredients) and blend evenly. If you already have plants in pots, dig 2 – 3 cm of the soil surface and apply 50 – 100g Humic acids powder per pot then normal watering. Or you can also add 2 – 3g Humic acids powder into 1L water and stir evenly then directly irrigating the roots, 1 – 2L water per pot depend pot size. Application frequency: 2 – 3 times per month.

For balcony garden: Use 200 – 400 grams Humic Acids Powder per square meter of soil blending, as base fertilizer, improved soil, slow release of nutrients.

For turf: Use 10 – 40 grams Humic Acids Powder per square meter. Application frequency: 2 – 3 times a month.

For aquarium use: At the bottom of the aquarium, laying around 1 – 2 cm in Humic Acid powder, then covered with a thin plastic mesh. Finally, laying a layer of sand. The fertility can be maintained around 3 months. Or put the Humic Acid powder into fine cotton bag or plastic bag for easy to replace.

Precautions:
• Avoid mixing with strong acids, alkaline substances and oxidants.
• Avoid use under bright sun light.
• Sealed and keep in dry place at room temperature.
• Keep out of children reach.
