Numerous studies have determined that only a small percentage of the chemical fertilizers applied to crops are utilized by the plants while the majority becomes “locked” as insoluble inorganic salts. This build-up of insoluble chemicals is one of the main factors that cause soil to become poor and less able to support healthy plant growth. While these salts cannot be absorbed by the crops, they can be released in run-off caused by heavy rains into adjacent rivers and lakes. Satellite photos show increasing dead zones in regions of the world where major rivers empty into the ocean.
Chemical accumulation causes the natural soil microbes to decline thus further reducing soil viability. Soil microbes are necessary to convert organic and inorganic material into a bio-available form that the plant can use in order to stimulate faster and stronger growth as well as bear fruit. In addition, herbicides and pesticides can accumulate in the soil further damaging the natural soil microbial community.
The microbes contained in SOS will breakdown inorganic salts into bio-available nutrients that can be utilized by the plants. Byproducts of this breakdown such as fatty acids and humates further stimulate plant growth and overall vigor.
SOS also contains microbes that will breakdown harmful toxins such as unspent herbicides and pesticides in the soil and other pollutants that could be contained in the irrigation water. These toxic substances are broken down into harmless fatty acids, CO2 and water. SOS microbes will speed the breakdown of dead organic material such as carbohydrates, proteins, etc., converting them into soluble forms of nitrogen and phosphorous. In addition, SOS will overgrow or competitively inhibit harmful or pathogenic microbes that may be present in soil. Maximizes water usage because the roots grow deeper.
Continued or seasonal use of SOS will restore depleted and damaged soil and greatly reduce the quantity of chemical fertilizer necessary in farming operations. SOS is the ORGANIC way to improve and enhance the soil!! SOS fluffs up the soil to make it more spongy, in order for the plants to soak up the nutrients much easier.Please view the Oil and Gas Treatment Page on this website regarding our LFS-1, the SOS will also remediate the same contaminates in soil and water. This is really a multi-usage product.
SOS works on any type of plant, flower, fruit, crop or grass!
Please check the above accompanying pictures regarding grass in Belgium that was grown without and with our SOS treatments. The plant where the SOS was used is on the right. This was done with one treatment only of SOS. The growth you see is after as little as six weeks of treatment. We have more pictures we can email you regarding other tests that we have done.
SOS is diluted in water and applied as a soil drench. When using chlorinated water, it is recommended to allow the water to sit in tanks or containers open to the atmosphere for 24 hours before mixing with SOS.
Horticulture Applications - For container grown plants mix - 1 tsp of SOS in one gallon of water and apply as follows:
For Flowers, Plants, Shrubs and Trees: Mix 1 ounce of SOS in one gallon of water and apply evenly around root area. Thoroughly water after application to soak SOS into root area. Apply when planting or transplanting, with each fertilizer application, or 3-4 times per growing season.
Row Applications - Mix 32 oz's of SOS in 100 gallons of water. This volume will treat 1 acre in 6" wide bands that are spaced 36" on center. Apply at planting and with each fertilizer application. For maximum results use the SSB at least two more times during the growing season.
Turf Applications - Mix 1.5 gallons of SOS in 600 gallons of water. This volume will treat 1 acre. For lawns apply in early spring, in the middle of summer and in late fall. For golf courses apply in early spring, then every 4 to 8 weeks on fairways and every 2 to 4 weeks on greens.
Suggested application rates of SOS should be adjusted for variations in soil, previous fertilizing, etc.
SOS is sold in 16 oz, 32 oz (1 liter), gallon, 2.5 & 5 gallon pails (9.5 & 18.92 liter) and 55 (208 liter) gallon drums.
