Why is carbon important?

There are many important pieces of the soil food web puzzle, but often the effect carbon plays is overlooked. In fact, maintaining a balanced C:N ratio of 20:1 in the soil directly supports a healthy soil food web and ultimately healthy plants. That’s because carbon is the energy/food sources for the beneficial microorganisms within the soil. Carbon-630302-edited

When you take a carbon heavy product like Healthy Grow and infuse it with a biology intensive product like Holganix, you’re addressing both sides of the equation. Healthy Grow provides the carbon that sustains the microorganisms living in Holganix, allowing them to help to build balanced soils and promote healthy plants.  What are the benefits to Healthy Grow infused with Holganix?
