Biofertilizer Industry Size and Growth

With organics now 5% of all U.S.  food sales, growers are increasingly pressured to use “natural” stimulants and biofertilizers. Microbial based ag biologics are showing fast revenue growth, with an estimated at a 40% CAGR, with an estimated market size for biofertilizers  of $11B by 2025 (according to DunhamTrimmer, an agricultural market research and consulting firm focused on biological products.)  SymSoil™ is participating in the rapidly expanding subsegment, microbial soil amendments, which currently is about  60% of the biofertilizer market.   CropLife® magazine recently published an article, Biofertilizers 2018: Finally Making Inroads, which described the rapid increase in demand from … Continue reading Biofertilizer Industry Size and Growth

Recent climate change vs. historic trends

Products like SymSoil used in conjunction with regenerative agriculture practices, including he soil restoration and woodland regeneration, no-till farming, cover crops, nutrient management, manuring and sludge application, improved grazing, water conservation and harvesting, efficient irrigation, agroforestry practices, and growing energy crops on spare lands can change the trends shown below. According to an article in Science, an increase of 1 ton of soil carbon pool of degraded cropland soils may increase crop yield and enhance food security.  It also potentially could sequester carbon at a rate of 0.4 to 1.2 gigatons of carbon per year.

Healthy Living Soil Explained

In this 3 minute video, Dr. Ingham describes how plants interact with biology in healthy soil.  SymSoil™ reseeds the soil microbes, that she describes, so they can feed the plant the way nature intended. All farmers want healthy soil, and SymSoil’s products and services are designed to revive dead dirt back to healthy, living soil.   Many farmers think that compost is the “solution”, as it adds organic matter to their soil. These farmers don’t realize that the manufacturing process of commercial compost kills most of the components of the soil microbe ecosystem.  It is designed to kill pathogens, a necessary step, … Continue reading Healthy Living Soil Explained

Invest in Carbon Sequestration

If you are looking for ways to impact climate change and increase carbon sequestration, please come hear the SymSoil pitch at Hanson Bridget in San Francisco on July 19th. At the end of the day, improving soil biology is the only way to  significantly roll back the carbon dioxide PPM – and it has to be economically make sense to farmers.  Come here the SymSoil story! We increase crop yields for farmers using organic methods, and have want to help them get carbon credits. We use the Microbiometer to measure organic matter in the soil    #FeedtheSoil #climatechange #SoilHealth #SoilFood … Continue reading Invest in Carbon Sequestration
