Agriculture in America is rapidly changing via a grassroots movement. The past decade has seen remarkable growth in consumer demand for food produced without potentially harmful chemical inputs. Most consumers and farmers have become more environmentally conscious. Farmers wish to farm and grow more sustainably, using fewer chemical inputs and turning to natural ways for ensuring soil health, thereby providing better health throughout the whole “food-chain”. It is hard to dispute the need for healthier grown foods when one considers the increase in heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc. Additionally, farmers are seeking changes as they see how chemicals and herbicides impact soil and plant health, thus leading to lower crop yields. Our soil amendment is 100% naturally fermented and processed. We take salmon use to its developmental apex, as our soil amendments provides many benefits including:
BIOAVAILABLE LIQUID CALCIUM
The liquefied bones of the fish provide a rich source of calcium to the plant and is readily available without overwhelming the soil and compromising soil chemistry. Our fertilizer contains a specific source of calcium that is naturally, precisely bound to phosphorous in such a way that the soil organisms and plants have complete access to both the calcium and phosphorus.
The amino acid profile found in our products is a balanced mixture of many of the necessary amino acids required for healthy plant growth, and can replace most synthetic mixes for a substantially lower cost. The product can be applied to the soil and/or the leaves as a foliar on most plants. This amino acid profile can lead to vigorous plant growth and enhanced protein synthesis.
HEF contains naturally occurring beneficial bacteria and fungi, from our unique fermentation process, which interact with the plants’ root systems, increasing the ability to absorb nutrients. In addition, these harmless bacteria and fungi have the capability to stimulate the beneficial microbial populations in the root zone (for increased root ball) or on the leaf surface.
VOLATILE FATTY ACIDS
By processing the whole fish, the total oil content of the fish is available for plant uptake. Our refining process reduces the raw fish oils to fatty acids which are readily usable energy essential for healthy growth and the reproduction of soil and plant. Available forms of fatty acids include propionic acid, butyric acid, lactic acid, and acetic acid. These fatty acids are used as energy; to stimulate hormone production; used by bacteria in the soil to stimulate root growth of various crops; stimulation of crops to add more fruit and grain; and are key for the production of antibiotics, and cellular respiration.
