Education & Soil Testing

EDUCATION - 

       Building & Maintaining Healthy Soils is the Basis for Sustainable Agriculture

AquaSoil SS' mission is to reach out to the farmers, farming co-ops & distributors of Africa, Middle East & Latin America, to educate on how to attain proper soil balance & learn what type of soil(s) they are dealing with, in order to create the healthiest soil environments to maximize crop production for the future well-being of our world.


We believe education will endow the right knowledge & products to implement successful programs, starting with proper & extensive soil-water testing and crop studies.  To create a properly balanced soil environment is the key to understanding it is truly possible to enhance the production of current low yielding farm lands, so long as it is economically feasible to provide appropriate & available water resources for irrigation.   We know we must inform many regarding the negative impact from the overuse of fertilizers
(see excerpts from May 2013 National Geographic article).  This article only covers the very tip of the problem, as it is a worldwide issue.

We know from experience that it is possible to address almost any soil issue with a viable solution, most of the time without having to resort to pesticide and/or herbicide use.  It is then a matter of economics and at times politics & can at first seem like daunting obstacles.  However, once it is proven with positive results achieved, it is very easy to calculate long-term economic benefits for the farmers, co-ops & larger operations alike. 


Our Chief Scientific Officer-technical adviser on our team believes it is extremely important to teach & show those in the industry, at the basic levels if necessary, to understand how soil balance is attained & its critical aspect in contributing to the productiveness and health of the soil & the crop being grown, and that we can cut down on our use of fertilizers while increasing yields. 
Our CSO is available to conduct on-site educational seminars on soil balance, liquid fertilizers, soil science, basic soil strategies & solutions for the regions of the world which we serve.

There are literally hundreds of billions of microbes battling it out in your soil everyday, determining if there is to be compatibility and soil balance, and along with it, productive soil; or dominance by certain organisms and ensuing serious soil problems.  To learn more about what happens in your soil, please watch this 2-part award-winning video and learning about......

SOIL TESTING -
Throughout the world, soil types, soil conditions, soil nutrient content & irrigation water vary dramatically, even within a specific region or locale.  This is why we encourage & teach those who want to produce crops with maximum yields on their farmlands, to test their soils and water on a regular basis.  This is to better understand how to deal with insufficient nutrient & micronutrient levels, pH control, salinity issues, nematodes & other common issues facing most farmers today.  Proper soil and water testing will provide key and invaluable information which will not only save money for all farmers; it will provide a road map to balancing their soils and maximizing crop yields, creating a sustainable, highly productive farming operation.

Soil testing is imperative and water testing is just as important.  Crop selection is another piece of the puzzle.  There are many variables which can come into play from one parcel of farmland to another at times.  As a result, it is critical to stay informed of what is in your soil, as well as what happens to your soil after each type of nutrient and/or micronutrient program is implemented, from pre-plant to planting, plant appearance, growth, crop & harvest stages.  We also know more often than not, most issues can be addressed with simple programs, many times using simple logic through the use of specific products & application methods.  All too often, companies are not truly concerned about the farmer, as their primary goal is to sell product to them only....hence they market to the concept of "more is better", making unfounded & unscientifically proven claims as to not only what their product can do, but often times as to what their product contains, whether watered down or containing outright unproductive and inefficient ingredients which do not properly break down in the soil to provide 100% nutrient access for root systems.  It is extremely important to make sure products are verified to contain the ingredients stated, through testing and actual results.  Efficiency of solubility and plant assimilation properties are also key elements, of which solid fertilizers struggle in, more so than with most liquid fertilizers.
