This all-round blend of biochar and nutrients will elevate your soil (or soilless media) and improve the effectiveness of any fertilizers or amendments you add to it. It will also make a killer compost tea. Although this blend is made with glacial rock dust, soybean meal, humic acid and worm castings, the driving force behind it is biochar.
Biochar is known to:
- Rejuvenate soil carbon levels
- Trap and hold nutrients to decrease nutrient runoff
- Sequester CO2 in the soil
- Encourage microbial health
- Increase water use efficiency
Earthshine uses these benefits of biochar to improve new soil performance, boost performance of old soil and maximize effectiveness of microbial inoculants. As a result, it helps growers save money on water and fertilizer costs as well as by increasing soil's longevity.
