Growing Produce? How Holganix Bio 800 Increases Soil Health & Yield

Produce Crops

When it comes to improving crop yield and root growth on produce, farmers using Holganix Bio 800+ are excited by their results.

In this blog, we video interview Holganix President of Agriculture, Dave Stark Ph.D., on results he is seeing in the field on Holganix Bio 800+ and produce. Keep reading, or click the link to short-cut to that topic. 

 

What does the data say?

Over the past four years, we have compiled data on several crops in several geographic zones to deepen our understanding of how Holganix Bio 800+ can help farmers maximize yields. 

Watch the 10-minute video below for a discussion on results from third party research and from farmers like you. If you are reading this blog via email, click here to watch the video. 

 

 

Why Holganix Bio 800+ Improves Crop Yield

Just as the infographic above demonstrates, healthy soil is functional because of the microbes that reside there. 

In fact, healthy, active soil has thousands of microbial species and billions of individual microbes that perform tasks like converting nutrients, suppressing disease, and breaking down organic matter. The functions microbes serve are so critical to plant health, that plants spend about 30% of their energy feeding and attracting microbes to the root zone. 

Holganix Bio 800+ charges soils with over 800 species of soil microbes to improve soil health and crop yield. Because Holganix Bio 800+ is diverse, it’s able to provide a multitude of benefits depending on what the soil and plant need. 

In general, when it comes to growing produce, Holganix Bio 800+:

  1. Increases crop yield
  2. Promotes soil health
  3. Improves root architecture
  4. Builds stronger plants that are better able to fight against environmental stressors like disease and weather
  5. Boosts brix index
