Builds a stronger root system by increasing root respiration and root formation.
Increases the Cation Exchange Capacity of the soil and facilitates nutrient absorption Great source of energy for beneficial soil organisms, which influence both soil fertility and plant health.
Improves aeration of soil and water retention in heavy and compact soils. Prevents water and nutrient losses in light sandy soils. Healthier roots hold soil, minimizing erosions. When added directly to soil it improves its quality and ability to grow crops. When added to urea, fertiliser and lime it improves their performance. When added to seeds it improves their strike rate and encourages root growth.
