Organic matter in soil improves all crops’ resilience to stress events (multiple research).

There has been a steady decline in soil organic matter and a resultant increase in higher fertiliser use, reduced quality and uniformity of produce, compacted soils (requiring more horsepower) and increased susceptibility to stress events.

OFS Crop Stress programs below provide cost-effective ways to get the benefits of soil health when crops are under stress. They target 4 key areas which research has shown improves crops’ resilience to stress events.

  • Microbial Activity & Diversity – Increased soil biological diversity and activity helps to build a healthier soil that is better at sustaining plant growth; improving nutrient cycling, soil stability and disease suppression.
  •  Active carbon – Humates/fulvates are the most active component of soil organic matter and are a cost-effective way to get the benefits of soil health. Humates increase water retention, improve soil structure, buffer against salinity & toxins, improve soil microbial activity and much more.
  • Energise plant – Heat & cold stressed crops benefit from kelp and bio-stimulants which improves root growth and photosynthesis to makes plants more resilient.
