Connecting to the roots of the future.
The health of living beings on the planet including soil, plant, animal, and man is interlinked and is a part of one ecosystem.
But most of the times we take the liberty of availability of soil and it’s nutrient component.
This has brought us to a point where, as a result, a large portion of the world’s soil is now in crisis – one-third of the world’s arable soil is degraded.
Soil is a combination of minerals, organic matter, air, water and living organisms. Extensive use of chemical driven products has resulted in soil without organic matter, lacking the productivity hence Soil Health Management has become the crucial part for sustainable future.
Did you know soil can loseits capacity to grow vegetables? You must have heard about the potting mix to grow your garden but that does not define soil’s water retention capacity to its fullest.
Lack of organic content in soil affects the soil health and can turn it into sand making it unproductive, less fertile for Plant’s Healthy growth
3 Key Components for any plantation is
- Soil Drainage
- Water Retention
- Organic Matter
Soil Drainage can be achieved with potting soil mixture but Increasing Water retention capacity and organic matter is tricky for longer period of time.Using Bio Enzyme Fertilizers with organic matter helps to tackle all three in one go. Avoiding Chemical Fertilizers and opting for natural bio fertilizers is the key.
Let’s understand a little about the soil’s physical properties and its relationship to soil moisture.
THE KEY COMPONENTS OF SOIL TEXTURE
Soil texture forms with a basic composition of the proportion of small, medium, and large particles (clay, silt, and sand, respectively) in a specific soil mass. The proportion of each component determines the soil texture. Soil texture determines its own Water Holding Capacity (WHC).
The amount of organic matter in the soil also affects water holding capacity to a degree.
For example, a coarse soil is sand or loamy sand, a medium soil is a loam, silt loam, or silt, and a fine soil is a sandy clay, silty clay, or clay.
The moisture in the soil is not always available it needs to be added with Enzymes and Bio products.
WHAT INFLUENCES SOIL’S WATER-HOLDING CAPACITY?
Water holding capacity is maintained by soil texture and organic matter, As the percentage of organic matter increases, the water-holding capacity increases because of the affinity organic matter has for water.These organic matters are nothing but the plant and animal detritus at various stages of decomposition, cells and tissues of soil microbesi.e. Microbial content in the natural fertilizers, and substances that soil microbes synthesize.
Why wait till the last moment, let’s take a small step to help conserve the soil from the comfort of our home. It is easier than you think; you can make the difference with just one plant.
Whether you have small balcony, garden or even a window box you can still save the soil from dying by planting trees and using natural fertilizers with bio enzymes and soil microbes.
Let’s unveil the easy ways you can protect the future
What can I do to increase the soil water holding capacity in my garden?
Unfortunately changing the soil texture of the field / Landscape is not a viable option. Soil texture can be changed naturally by soil erosion, but that usually changes soil texture in a negative way. The best option for a landscape or lawn is to increase the organic matter, microbes and enzymes in the soil.
Here are some ways to increase Soil quality
- Use cover crops
- Change to conservation tillage practices, for example no-till or minimal tillage
- Add Bio Enzyme Based Fertilizers
- Add homemade organic compost from Kitchen waste
