Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser contains living microbes and fungi which, when applied to seed, plant surfaces, or soil, colonizes the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth while increasing the availability of nutrients to the host plant.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is 100% Organic and contains the required nutrients and biology to help restore soil health and maximise yield.
There is so much more to Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser than the just the nutrients.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is backed up by over forty years of research and development and contains over twenty five varieties of specific beneficial microbes and fungi that facilitate enzyme production, nutrient transformation, nitrogen fixation and pro-biotic production.
Using Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser helps rejuvenate the soil to an ideal balanced state, physically, chemically and biologically for maximum productivity.
Rejuvenated soil means that there is a balance of bacterial and fungal life along with the larger earthworms and insects. It is through this complex web of life that nutrients are processed and made ready for plant absorption.
When the soil is rejuvenated there is a symbiosis between the plants and the soil that is ongoing and sustainable, the way nature intended.
Rejuvenated soil can have a positive effect on:
- Nutritional availability to the plants
- Soil tilth
- Water holding capacity
- Soil pH
- Fallowing cycle
- Health of end product
- Microbial and fungal life in the soil
- Overall yield
- Labour inputs
- Chemical inputs
- Fungicide use
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser an excellent soil conditioner, making the soil more friable.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser enhances the cation exchange capacity (CEC) or nutrient binding capacity of the soil.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is a source of organic acids that can improve the assimilability of minerals by plants and also contributes to the building of humus complexes in the soil.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser facilitates nitrogen fixation which translates into substantial savings on chemical-based nitrogenous fertilisers.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser enhances the growth of soil micro-organisms that help release elements for plant use and form growth promoting substances advantageous to plant growth.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser can beneficially affect the chemistry of inorganic fertilisers in the soil minimizing their degree of mineralization.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser enhances the moisture retention of the soil by increasing its water holding capacity in addition, Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser minimises sharp fluctuations of soil temperature, hence, minimizing the stress in plants attributable to wide gaps of daytime and night time temperature.
We also produce fortified fertilisers that contain non-organic additives but even these are processed by the microbes and fungi to be assimilated by the plants as soon as it is added to the soil. This means that less non-organic inputs can be used and they are not bound up in the soil.
The agricultural industry is often facing hard times and farmers, the same as any other business, are always looking for a financial edge. Rejuvenated soil positively affects the cost of fertilisation, the processes on the farm and the quality of the final product. Not to mention the environmental advantages.
When soil is rejuvenated less chemical and labour are needed to produce the ultimate yield.
Determining cost effectiveness involves examining both the costs and savings that any change will bring to a commercial operation. A holistic view of the process takes into account the product cost, the effect on processes in the operation, as well as the improvements of the business performance in the market.
When we talk to farmers a comparison is completed to determine these factors as an initial step in our discussions.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is ideal for home gardeners who want to grow healthy plants and vegetables without relying on chemical fertilisers. Many residential sub-divisions have the topsoil removed during development so the householder is left to try and grow a garden and lawn on subsoil devoid of organic matter. Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is ideal for re-introducing organic matter and life back into the soil.
Also there is no danger of over fertilising and killing plants as you can plant directly into the fertiliser without damaging the plants.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is not just compost. It is 100% assimilable instead of only partially as is the case with composts. Also, the recommended spread rates for Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser are 50% to 70% less than compost products.
Greenbelt is environmentally safe
Not only is Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser environmentally safe but it is environmentally enhancing.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is manufactured from common microbes and is not subject to any genetic engineering.
When in the soil it is rejuvenating the soil back to how it was before it was depleted by the introduction of chemicals.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is also used in aqua culture to clean the water and neutralize the fish manure. So even in the scenario where a field with soil rejuvenated with the product was washed into a river in times of floods there would be no ill effects.
Greenbelt Organic Fertiliser is phosphate solubilising, which means it breaks the chemical bonds between aluminium, calcium and iron. When this is done the phosphorus already in the soil is made available for absorption by the plants. The outcome is less phosphorus in the form of phosphate fertilisers (a major cause of environmental pollution) needs to be used in fertilisation. This is a major boon to the environment.
