Compost and Soil Inoculants
Inoculants are bacteria or fungi that are added to your soils or compost to improve the fertility of your soil. The cultures added work by freeing up soil nutrients and makin them available for plants to take up or creating symbiotic relationships with plant root systems.
We carry a range of different inoculants with various teams of beneficial bacteria. Because no one bacteria can survive the various conditions in the soil, most of our products have an array of strains in order to work to release nutrients from your soil whatever your conditions may be. When the amount of nutrients released by inoculants is compared to the cost of the equivelant amount of fertilizer you would have to buy, inoculants may be the cheapest way available to release food to your plants.
The most common microorganisms in these inoculants is Rhizobacteria that attach to plant roots to fix nitrogen or mycorrhizal fungi which attach to the roots of many plant species and help conduct water and nutrients for the plants to use.
