Microbes play a huge role in producing and maintaining structured soils. Many people think that adding organic matter to the soil will instantly produce a more structured soil, but this is not actually true. It is not until the microbes, and to some degree other soil animals such as earthworms, have delved through the organic matter that the soil structure changes.
There are three main ways in which microbes enhance soil structure. Firstly, they secrete long chain sugar molecules, which stick small soil particles together, leaving spaces between them. The second is by fungal hyphae – these thin strands act like a hair net, keeping soil particles in place, thereby reducing the chance of the soil being compacted or eroded. The third way is by the release of carbon dioxide during the break down of the organic matter leading to the formation of air-filled pores. So even though microbes are extremely small, they can still influence soil structure. This is why it’s imperative to have them in your soil. A great way to increase the number of microbes in your soil is to inoculate the soil with GOGO Juice used in combination with a certified organic pellet such as Seamungus or Rooster Booster.
About GOGO Juice – GOGO Juice is literally teeming with beneficial micro-biology and is essentially a pro-biotic for your soil and plants. GOGO Juice combines the “catalystic” power of providing a wide diversity of beneficial bacteria and fungi with the well documented benefits of applying kelp and humates. Monthly applications of GOGO Juice provide a huge boost of the living micro-biology necessary for your soil and plants to perform at their optimum level, increasing their ability to resist pest and disease and to withstand and/or recover from, heat stress and frost. GOGO Juice will also inoculate your soil with millions of beneficial bacteria.
The carefully selected microbes have been proliferated utilising complex carbohydrates and sugars through a unique aerobic brewing system in which the kelp, seaweed, humic acid and manure have been digested by the beneficial bacteria. The resultant product provides a huge boost of the living microbiology necessary for your soil and plants to perform at their optimum level, increasing their ability to resist pest and disease and to withstand heat and frost stress. The microbiology in GOGO Juice promotes plant growth as well as stimulating and improving root growth and development.
About Seamungus – Seamungus is a soil and plant conditioner, manufactured by combining the very best composted raw materials – seaweed, fish, humic acid and manure. It is available in pellet and crumble form, as well as a liquid concentrate. Whilst Seamungus contains a wide range of plant nutrients, it is perhaps the additional unique properties contained within seaweed that provide the catalyst for providing higher yields of sustained quality. Seamungus will stimulate healthy growth both above and below ground, and most importantly, generally improve the wellbeing of your soil and plants. It will also help plants resist heat, drought and frost, along with pests and disease. Seaweed contains a number of naturally occurring growth stimulants – fantastic for promoting plant and root growth and development. Seaweed is also recognised for its ability to retain moisture and increase the moisture level of the plant’s cell sap – this increases the plant’s ability to resist frost and heat stress.
Seamungus undergoes a unique composting process, specifically developed to stabilise the nutrients, maximise nutrient availability and to ensure the product is free of any parasites, pathogens and weed seeds. Most importantly, the resultant product retains the microbiology necessary for a ‘living’ product.
