Recommendation – High Cost Conventional Soy

High Cost Conventional Soy

Recommendation Objective:

Build the fungal component of soil biology to get to a higher level of plant beneficial function. Diversify and increase  the microbial community to reduce, control and eliminate invasive weeds. Increase germination, control/suppress insects. Eliminate fusarium and other soil borne diseases. Increase nutrient efficiency, opening up key nutrient pathways. Improve plant stress, drought, and heat resistance. Increase protein content (from increase of N in the Amino Acid) and improve protein synthesis efficiency. Increase yield. Neutralize and quiet the effects of aluminum and chloride. Use of Organic herbicides, carbon based fertilizers.

Earlier and more uniform harvest. Reduce, eliminate compaction, improve Oxygen into the microbial living ecosystem. Increase rows, kernels. Reduce incidence of premature senescence due to nutrient status and balance of plant growth hormones cytokinins/auxins. Eliminate non beneficial pests, soil borne disease, because of the chitinase enzyme in crustaceans. Increase root size from feeding plant growth hormones, cytokinins, auxins. Improve carbon/water cycling, decreasing weed germination. Available/organic form of calcium. No Glyphosate use. Non GMO varieties.

Increase carbon, increase ROI. Reduce or eliminate use of Chloride fertilizers. Eliminate uses of fungicides, insecticides and chemical seed treatments. Reduce herbicide by 30%. Buffer herbicides using boron max or a humic, fulvic product. Enhancement of pH gradients using aqueous is important to drive uptake of essential ions and solutes.   Improve weed control, herbicide efficacy, and crop debris break down.

Phase 3 / Field Operation / Planting

Sea Phos is a Fungi dominant food source. It stimulates beneficial bacteria, provides organic form of Ca, Phos, Omega's for energy to the microbial community, stimulate auxin and cytokinins, provides chitinase, fungicidal, insecticidal properties.

Mfood is unique in that it is designed to stimulate beneficial microbial growth by providing all of the food, nutrients, vitamins, enzymes and elements that are required as building blocks for increased microbial metabolism and reproduction.

Phase 5 / Field Operation / Foliar V-3-V-5, Fertigation

Use twin jet 30-70 tips, 50 PSI, 40 mesh pump screen, larger orifice in valve body.

Sea Crop contains 92 minerals extracted from a the ocean, with chloride removed. It's instrumental in balancing the nutrient profile of the soil microbiome, this helps suppress diseases, balancing nutrients.

Potassium Acetate is the most efficient form of potassium.

Growthful increases dispersion and maximizes transport/solubility of resident nutrients and cationic exchange.
