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

Regenerative Agriculture and SymSoil

Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles, processes and practices that actively enriches soils, biodiversity of the soil microbes, the overall ecosystem and watersheds while effectively increasing soil fertility and agricultural yields. Most practitioners believe that Regenerative Agriculture can improve the resilience of the farmer and rancher economically, as well as the well-being of the surrounding communities. SymSoil Inc., as a microbe farmer and soil blender, may be overly focused on the role of the soil microbes in plant health. Our science staff approaches Regenerative Agriculture from the perspective of training in permaculture, Korean Natural Farming, carbon chemistry and … Continue reading Regenerative Agriculture and SymSoil

Improving Soil to Improve Taste

Harry Klee, a researcher at the University of Florida published insights into improving tomato flavor in a 2012 article in Current Biology. Klee believes good tomato flavor is a complex panorama of sugars, acids, and mysterious gassy chemicals that we experience as smell. Klee and his colleagues are still identifying those “aroma volatiles.”  Reviewing 152 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, the researchers found more than 3,000 volatile chemicals that impact taste. He recommends planting seedlings in rich soil with lots of organic matter, or compost. The interaction between the microbes can impact flavor significantly.  NPR has an article, How to Grow … Continue reading Improving Soil to Improve Taste
