Dirt2Soil is an organic soil conditioning treatment of natural beneficial bacteria and
fungi necessary for healthy soil, roots and turf reducing the need for water and chemical fertilizers.
Remember your days in grammar school when you learned about Squanto, the Native American who taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn the way his ancestors had done for 10,000 years? The seeds
were planted in soft soil, covered with small fish:
“The fish will feed the corn as the corn feeds you. Squanto
Man has tilled the earth, planted seeds, and grown crops for thousands of years using fertilizers such as fish, compost and all types of manure. There also have been many products that stimulate the natural biological activity in the soil. After World War II, man-made chemicals, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, wetting agents, salt-based fertilizers, soil fumigation techniques and an almost endless list of surfactant synthetic chemicals have been introduced to agriculture. Decades of chemical treatments have virtually sterilized the soil by killing the essential bacteria that provide the fundamental foundation for all healthy plant growth.
The long-term effects of these toxic chemicals have not yet been determined, but we have a clue…
There have, however, been some natural products developed that stimulate the biological activity of the soil or apply one form of organic acid or another. After working with many of these products over the last 20 years we saw impressive results with one of them.
A micro-biologist was able to isolate the most effective biological and nutrient rich combination of flora and develop an application protocol that produces hundreds of gallons of organic soil conditioner that contains billions of live beneficial bacteria that can be introduced directly into any irrigation system. This product, D2S Organic Soil Conditioner, and its application protocol, has been certified as meeting the USDA National Organic Standards.
Various organisms break down organic and mineral materials in the soil. This is partly by enzymatic action and partly by taking the materials in as nutrients and metabolizing them further. Most of the byproducts of this breakdown are used by the plants as nutrients, although some, perhaps 5%, are lost into the soil environment and become relatively stable and resistant to further decomposition. This remaining homogenous mix of material is called humis. Humis is the dark colored, sweet smelling substance often referred to as "black gold" because of its nutritional value to the plants, the soil and the microorganisms living within them.
Humis goes through a process that causes its components to merge and form complex chained structures called polymers which are poly-phenolic acids. These polymers synthesize partly due to the enzymes from the soil microorganisms and partly due to the soil chemistry. During humification all cellular makeup undergoes a transformation, modification and structural reorganization that results in a highly complex polymeric humic compound. Some of this process is a chemical reaction, but most of what is taking place is biochemical which produces enzymes that are released by the microorganisms. This process produces several beneficial results. First, they help the plant to increase the absorption of minerals and bring into solution certain mineral materials that were previously inert and convert them
into useable nutrients. Second, they facilitate the absorption of other organic compounds that serve
to aid in plant nutrition and plant physiology. Third, they help reduce toxic materials in the soil. Fourth, they increase the water holding capacity of the soil thus makingwater more available to the plants. Fifth, they increase the soil's buffering capacity which helps stabilize the soil's pH thus helping the
plants absorb mineral nutrients. All of these result in a dark soil color which aids in the absorption of solar energy.
1. Introduces symbiotic organisms to your soil. 2. Improves overall soil efficiency and cell improvement. 3. Accelerates select biological growth. 4. Biologically transforms bound micro and macro nutrients for plant intake. 5. Improves soil aggregate for additional water absorption, aeration, root development and overall plant health. 6. Is specifically formulated to enhance biological growth of indigenous organisms, resulting in soil improvement, thus promoting healthier plants and increased productivity.
