Cool Season Soil Builder

Description

Our Cool Season Soil Builder Mix includes 11 different species designed for improving soil organic matter and controlling weeds, it can also double as a Cool Season Grazing Mix for livestock. This diverse blend of legumes, grasses, brassicas, and broadleaves all work in synergy to build soil. Legumes convert nitrogen in the atmosphere and make it available to other plants while prolific grassroots improve soil aggregation and water infiltration. Brassicas are excellent scavengers of nutrients unavailable to other plants. Broadleaves for their part offer a deep taproot to break up compaction and their flowers attract beneficial insects. This combination leaves no room for weeds to grow to keep your fields clear for your next crop. If you want to improve the quality of your soil, this mix is for you!

This product is pre-inoculated with GreenMerge and Rhizo-Fixer Plus, to increase the biological activity in your soil. 
  • GreenMerge is a seed applied inoculant derived from natural products designed to stimulate seed germination, increase root and biological biomass in the soil, and improve soil structure. OMRI status has been applied for and is pending. 
  • Bolster L Green Inoculant contains multiple families of nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria plus Azospirillum Brasiliense (free living N fixer) and two phosphorus-solubilizing bacteria, Pantoea Eucalypti and Pseudomonas Baetica. 
Note these inoculants are NOT currently OMRI approved, however many of our certified organic customers have received approval to use these products. Please contact your certifier and refer to these documents before using this product on organic certified land.
