Soil is a critical part of our ecosystem. It filters water, recycles essential nutrients to feed forests and crops, regulates the Earth’s temperature and manages important greenhouse gases.
A handful of healthy soil contains billions of microorganisms critical to fulfilling its role in our ecosystem. This diverse composition of microbes includes fungi, bacteria and even microalgae. When soil is at its best microalgae can be as much as 20% of this microbial biomass. But the inappropriate use of chemical fertilizers has disturbed this delicate balance and disrupted the natural cycle that preserves our planet.
TrueAlgae works with farmers to reestablish that natural cycle, providing micronutrient dense algae products to nourish the soil, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers. Our product, TrueSolum®, is an organic and proprietary liquid that is produced from the cultivation of Chlorella microalgae. The product contains useful metabolites that are expressed during the growth process of the microalgae. These metabolites stimulate the natural microbial activity in the soil. The increase in beneficial microorganisms leads to improved soil quality and better nutrient uptake by the plant. Third party research and our grower partners have verified many benefits including:
- enhanced soil microbial diversity
- more vigorous root systems
- increased yield
- better crop quality
- extended shelf life of their crops
TrueSolum is easy to use. It can be added directly to irrigation water or tank mixed with other agriculture inputs for application to the soil. We recommend pre-treating the soil prior to planting seasonal crops to jump start the beneficial microbial activity.
