Having optimal soil and growing media conditions is essential for strong, active root growth and indeed healthy productive crops. It is very rare to find soils that are perfect for the growing crop and all will differ from year to year depending upon crops grown, nutritional products and agrochemicals applied, mechanical compaction and if irrigated, water factors of salts, pH and mineral load. Growing media is no different and will be more affected by irrigation than soils, so both often require help.
Within the products from Engage, we have developed a range of technologies that are created to directly work in soil and growing media. All will aid growing crops in correcting many of the issues seen in soil and growing media rootzones from optimal water retention, reducing salt load, optimising bioactivity, creation of optimal aerobic conditions, correcting pH and optimising cation exchange capacity (CEC).
