Reduce Water Usage

By using our products in your soil, we are adding the minerals that are missing, which improves soil structure. This allows more water into the soil, and is held more available into the root zone. Plants are now able to utilise water and fertiliser more efficiently. Plants use up to 30% of their energy putting it back into the soil through their roots in a substance called exudate which feeds and stimulates microbial activity. The microbes in turn solubilise the minerals from the soil and makes them available to the plants.

Clay Soils: Earthlife products loosens all clay soils  and provides better moisture penetration, softer soil, improved nutrient availability and reduces the effects of waterlogging.

Sandy Soils: Our products bind sand particles together in sandy soils, which reduces nutrient leaching and improves moisture availability.
