Indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides over the last 5 decades have significantly affected (reduced ) the soil fertility. Presence of salts in chemical fertilizers makes soil hard and compact. Pesticides not only kills pathogenic microbes and insects but also kills vital beneficial micro-flora and insects in the soil. Biological properties of the soil has worsened. As a result soil cycle is disturbed. If it is not rectified in time, soil which was fertile once would gradually become totally infertile. Itâs a great threat to all farming depending on chemical fertilizers and pesticides only.
Bhoomigold is a unique blend of bioactive extract of Bio-chemically transformed carbonaceous organic matter, amino acids and bio energetic components. It is specially design to replace harmful ( when used in excess) chemical fertilizers particularly UREA and a useful but expensive organic manure i.e. compost. It's unique composition increases nutrient assimilation and enhances SOIL PRODUCTIVITY. Bhoomigold is specially designed for Slow Release-Prolonged Action and for enhancing Soil Fertility. Unlike other water soluble products it is insoluble and hence don't leach out from soil to remain effective for 3-6 months. Soil with low Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) can not hold electrically charged vital nutrients and as a result they are leached out during irrigation. Bhoomigold plays important role by enhancing utilization of micro and macro nutrients.
Appearance : Dark Brown to black spherical granules ( easy to mix with fertilizers)
Composition : Bio-chemically transformed carbonaceous organic matter, amino acids and bio energetic components - 60 % ( dry basis)
Nutrients and Minerals : 15-20 %
Moisture : 5-6 %
Â· Increases soil fertility by
o Increasing soil micro-flora population
o Accelerating Organic Matter DECOMPOSITION
o Increasing HUMUS / CARBON content in the soil
Â· Stimulates growth and proliferation of desirable soil microbes, algae and yeast.
Â· Assist in transferring vital micronutrients from soil to plant. Increase nutrient holding / binding capacity of the soil therefore reduces fertilizer dosages by 30-50 %.
Â· Increases Cation Exchange Capacity ( CEC) of the soil.
Â· Substitute for urea and organic matter.
Â· Extra strength Soil conditioner because it break up clay and compacted soil.
Â· Improves soil porosity , enhances aeration and water retention capacity of the soil.
Â· Increases root respiration and formation.
Â· Increases root mass , fruit yield and bio-mass in the plant.
Â· Restores and ensures continuity of Bio-cycles.
Â· Increases brix level.
Â· Increases buffering properties of the soil. Helps in neutralizing both acidic and alkaline soil.
Â· Retain water soluble nutrients in the root zone and releases them to plant when needed.
Â· Reduces soil erosion.
Â· Act as Bio-catalyzer and Bio-stimulator. Enhances physiological processes such as Respiration, Cell division, Photosynthesis, Cell elongation and Energy transfer.
Â· Converts Iron into available forms and hence prevents Chlorosis
Â· Mobilize the phosphate anion hence increases availability to the plant.
SOIL BIOCYCLE : Bhoomigold plays important role in restoring the natural soil cycle. It serves as a energy source and hence stimulates bacterial growth, increases their population in the soil. Soil flora in turn enhances decomposition of organic matte ; increases carbon content in the soil.
The application dosages of Bhoomigold varies from 20-40 kg/acre depending upon
a. The soil condition
b. Type of soil
c. Crop duration
Higher dosages are recommended for high value crops such as Medicinal Aromatic Plants, horticulture , floriculture and perennial crops.
Crops on which Bhoomigold has been used successfully includes tomato, potato, pepper, cucumbers, melon, squash , cabbage, cauliflower, ornamentals, small grain, tobacco, sweet potatoes, turf, strawberries, citrus, MAPs, jatropha and floriculture.
Â· Bhoomigold should be applied on the soil 10 days before planting and can be worked into top 1 to 2 inches of soil.
Â· Do NOT plow down.
Â· It can also be applied to the soil after planting and cultivation. Allow to lay on top of the soil for the rain to carry it in.
Â· Bhoomigold may be mixed with chemical fertilizer (P and K ) or compost before adding to soil.
Â· Soil humidity should be around 30-40 % when Bhoomigold is added to soil.
Â· No need to use urea .
TOXICOLOGY Bhoomigold is non toxic and has no detrimental effects to soil microbes.
Do not inhale / consume. If inhaled shift from exposed area to fresh clean air. If eyes and skin are affected, flush with clean water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.
To be stored in a dry, clean, dark, well ventilated, moisture proof place.
PACKING Available in 10 and 25/30 kg bag.
