Soil Health and Mineral Improvement Persimmon Polyculture

We’ve been getting some requests for soil results over the years. Particularly since we’ve been reporting our successes. Here is one area of focus in the garden that seems to be exceeding our expectations (and is a good representation of the soil on the site in general).

Notice that the exchange capacity has increased, along with the humus. This allows the biogeochemistry of the soil to better manage and store minerals — like a large well run library. As these numbers go up, so does the resilience of the system.

Also notice that boron has increased since we broadcast a custom mineral blend two years ago, created by Forster Soil Management. And yet, many of the levels of trace minerals still need to be improved, which we plan to do with targeted foliar applications.

Healthy soil = Healthy plants = Healthy people
