How Dr. Earth Soils & Fertilizers Work
Feed the Soil That Feeds Your Plants©
By: Milo Shammas, Founder & Formulator
Our fertilizer and soil blends include not only the nutrients your plants need but also TruBiotic®, five champion strains of beneficial soil microbes plus ecto and endo-mycorrhizae. Mycorrhizae carry out a wide range of functions, such as developing a symbiotic relationship with your garden plants, trees, and lawn for increased support in absorbing nutrients and water from the soil environment.
These beneficial soil microbes help to breakdown organic material, making the material more readily available for absorption by the plant roots. A reduction in fertilizer applications and better plant health can be realized by our blend’s ability to breakdown organic material more thoroughly than other organic fertilizers.
A vital mechanism for nutrient transfer in plants lies in the bacterial process. Bacteria’s ability to breakdown the organic material and nutrients in the applied fertilizer, then store them for both immediate and postponed release, increases plant performance. Increasing biological activity in your soil through the introduction of microbes also helps to provide your plants with a steady release of nutrients.
