How Analyses by Agrilibrium Professionals Can Help, Farmers Improve Soil Quality?

Founded in 2001, Agrilibrium is committed to providing products and analysis to farmers that help them yield better crops. The company develops high quality products for organic farming in South Africa, making way for an agriculture boom in the country. It assists in the production of better yields that could prove to be beneficial to the farmers not only in the African country, but also in other parts of the world. The positive efforts of specialists within the company has resulted in magnificent products and analysis techniques, which determine the quality of the soil, the nutrients available and the steps required to make the soil better yielding one.

Some of their major analysis and techniques are discussed below.

Soil Analysis: In simple words, it means chemical analysis of soil minerals carried out to determine crop available nutrients. Alongside, it also helps to find the soil structure, composition and the ratio of harmful compounds in the soil. By conducting this analysis, farmers get a better picture of their soil type; they are able to determine which crops will yield better results and flourish more. Samples from different parts of the field are collected and the analysis is carried out.

The results thus obtained help to determine which products are to be used on the soil to increase its nutrient content. For example, Seed Speed is one such product, which is a fulvic, and amino acid chelated seed treatment that helps in most favourable seedling growth and germination. This product corrects and balances the nutrient levels in the seedling root zone thus removing physiological imbalances.

1:2 Water Extract Analysis: This analysis is a very effective tool in determining the availability of nutrients. The water-soluble nutrients in the soil are measured and after analysis, the number of nutrients available for uptake by plant roots is determined.  The analysis is carried out in a number of places so that farmers are able to understand which parts are fertile with nutrients and which need treatment. They can also plant crops accordingly.

The field experts carry out both the analyses so that they can suggest accurate steps to farmers. These analyses are the first step to increasing the mineral and natural element content in the soil. Once the condition of the soil is determined properly through these methods, it becomes easier to choose the product that could lead to better yield.

To summarize, soil analysis and 1: 2 water extract analysis are the two main analyses that Agrilibrium carry out to determine the quality of soil and suggest products accordingly.

Agrilibrium: One-Stop Destination for Products with Essential Plant Nutrients

Companies operating in the agriculture domain keep on introducing new products that intend to better the condition of plants. These products are important in the wake of enriching the soil with essential plant nutrients extracted from several effective minerals and chemical compositions. Agrilibirum is home to a wide selection of such useful products that work actively in enhancing the harvest. Since 2001, it has been developing quality stuff to ensure fruitful organic farming.

Its best of breed products subsume the categories of organic and biological products, wetter/spreader, and mineral nutrients, which are further divided into soil applied and foliar applied nutrients. Some of them are described below:

DynoSulf: This product contains water-soluble phyto-fulvate complexed high concentration liquid sulphur with a low ratio of nitrogen to sulphur. It is efficacious both for the soil and leaf applications and is a widely recommended Sulphur or S-complex that makes up for S-deficiencies and imbalances in the plant. Other of its benefits for plants and crops are as below:

• Enhanced photosynthesis and protein synthesis

• Improved plant oil production in oil crops

• Accentuated coloration of ripening fruit

• Improved aroma components in crops such as brassicans, onions, wine grapes, etc.

Fullmax: It is a foliar product from Agrilibrium, which enhances the mobility and uptake of ingredients within the plant when used with glyphospate. It is one of widely demanded foliar nutrition products with effective concentrations to enhance the productivity of plants. While the contained Phytofulvate (fulvic acid) stimulates the growth, the herbicide slows down the protein synthesis.

This altogether, leads to improved activity and efficiency of herbicide or the metabolism and uptake of the foliar nutrient. It also ensures multiple fulvic acid benefits to the plants with its unusual characteristic that gives the wetting and dispersing abilities to the plants. It is extracted from the trees to create such an effect. However, the acid will not exhibit this wetting and spreading behaviour if extracted from any other source.

AminoBoost: The phyto-fulvic acid nutrient chelated product improves soil structure and rehabilitation. It encourages the root’s ability to pierce through the brackish and compacted soils. The product is completely water-soluble with excellent wetter and re-wetter characteristic. It is a unique fulvic acid, which is extracted from trees and is applied to plants by using sprinkler or dripper systems.

To summarize, Agrilibrium provides a range of unique products that are efficacious in increasing the metabolism and health of plants. These products include essential plant nutrients such as liquid sulphur, fulvic acid and more.
