SoilLife’s natural sugars provide an immediate energy source for micro-organisms and serve as protection for root structures.
SoilLife‘s natural sugars provide an immediate energy source for micro-organisms and serve as protection for root structures. They work extremely well with humic and fluvic acids to produce more natural sugars. The higher level of sugars lead to higher quality grains and more resilient plants.
SoilLife’s natural sugars also create a biocontrol method for reducing pest populations while increasing the number of beneficial insects, such as earthworms, bees, ground beetles and lady bugs.
SoilLife’s Natural Sugar
SoilLife uses molasses as a natural sugar source. Recent studies have shown that molasses boosts soil microbes. A molasses mixture in water has proven to increase microbial activity in soil. Results of field studies appear to indicate that a low dose is as effective as a large application. Low dose rates appear to work better for fungi and cellulose utilizers, while others showed greater response with increased application rate. So, understanding the type of microbe you wish to supply with your soil is the balance you are attempting to accomplish.
Molasses is carbon
Molasses is an effective quick source of carbon energy for various forms of microbial life in soil. In fact, molasses has long been a part of the common products used by organic gardeners to bring greater health to their soils and plants, because of its vast source of carbohydrates that stimulates the growth of soil beneficial microorganisms.
It must also be noted that molasses it also a chelating agent, which means that it can help convert some chemical nutrients into a form more readily available for organisms and plants to use.
