Plants can only take up nutrients in solution (dissolved in soil water). Nutrients in solution are 'ions' with a positive or negative charge. The balance of these charges determine which nutients are taken up by the plant and which ones are 'locked out'. If you don't know the nutrient ratios of your soil you don't know if the fertiliser you apply (organic or inorganic) will be utilised by your plants. Your plants may be missing out on essential nutrients for healthy growth even though they were present in the product you applied. Those nutrients not utilised, leach through the soil into groundwater. The result..you've done more harm than good, wasted your time and your money!
PRECISELY MANAGING & BALANCING SOIL NUTRIENTS :
The 202020 Vision is one big collaboration to make our urban areas 20% greener by 2020. Plants and trees cool our cities and they reduce pollution. They get us out and about and make us healthier, happier and more productive. Yet, too often, they are overlooked when plans are drawn and concrete is poured. We have a plan to change that.
A project to collate scientific soil data and assess the progress of soil health over periods of time with precise management. Aiming to raise awareness about the importance of soil, soil science and how we should treat and protect our soil as a precious and finite resource. Working with other companies worldwide to adopt best practice techniques..
