Accessing Soil’s PotentialImprove Soil Health and Increase Yields Through Our Composting
"If we want clean water, we have to get the biology back in our soils. If we want to grow and harvest crops, we have to build soil and fertility with time, not destroy it. The only way to reach these endpoints is to improve
the life in the soil."
Optimize Your Profit
By Improving Soil Health, We Reduce the
use of Costly Inputs
A healthy soil is composed of a functioning microbial ecosystem that more efficiently uses nutrients, builds soil structure, and combats pathogen pressure. The benefit of building a healthier soil is thus directly linked to reductions in fertilizer applications, water usage, and agrochemicals.
Additionally, healthier soil does not just function as a carbon sink, but it is more tolerant to climate variations, an issue that is becoming more prevalent each day.
Our Enhanced Nutrient Pathways Lead to
Our customized biological solutions re-introduce site specific microorganisms responsible for Macro- and Micro-nutrient mineralization.
These microorganisms access nutrients and minerals that would otherwise be inaccessible to the plant, releasing them directly into the root zone as the plant needs them.
The steadily available stream of nutrient production allows the crop to grow with vigor and yield its greatest potential.
A Tailored Approach
Comprehensive Sustainable Management Practices
A project begins with a site assessment in which our goal is to understand your current practices, largest problems, and objectives in the short and long term. With this understanding we can develop a project plan together that achieves your goals.
Improving soil health and its biological productivity, happens most rapidly when the correct biological inputs are implemented alongside beneficial practices. We know which practices will be most effective at your farm and will accelerate your path to profitability.
Depending on project requirements and material availability, we can guide you to create biologically active compost on site. With our programs, sensors, and experience, creating high-quality compost is easy and very beneficial to production.
Common practices in agriculture treat soil as a depletable resource. We are breaking that paradigm by building soil year after year, creating an agricultural system that increases value over time. With Terralife, farmers achieve a soil that they will pass down to future generations.
Every year millions of acres of topsoil are lost via soil degradation and erosion. Ourtechnology enhances soil’s structure, infiltration, and water retention, keeping topsoil in place.
Our solutions increase the biological production of nutrients within soil, allowing for a significant reduction in fertilizer and other chemical inputs. As inputs are reduced there is an increased absorption rate, ultimately leading to drastically reduced chemical leaching into our streams, rivers, and oceans.
Terralife increases biodiversity in the soil and above ground. By increasing soil biodiversity, the farmer experiences the knock-on benefit of reduced pathogen pressures, allowing for reduced/eliminated pesticide usage Pesticides often affect more than the target pest, killing most higher-level organisms. Without these beneficial insects present in the larger ecosystem there is an increased risk for recurring pest pressure.
Additionally, farms with more biodiversity lead to soils with a higher microbial diversity. This creates positive impacts on human gut-biomes and our overall health.
