Boosting Life Underground

a living and microbiologically fertile soil is the basis for qualitatively and quantitatively excellent production
<p>In one hectare of vineyard we can find about 2000-3000 species of fungi and 5000-6000 species of bacteria. According to a recent study in 12 vineyards in the Euganean Hills and Berici Hills area, as many as <strong>56,046 species of fungi and bacteria </strong>had been sequenced*</p>

Living components of the soil

 

For many years soil was thought to be an almost inert complex, focusing mainly on its physical and chemical characteristics: sand, silt, clay, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and micro-nutrients. As a matter of fact, the concept soil fertility is now closely linked to organic substances and more specifically to the living components of the soil.

The living biomass has been present in our soil for millennia, and over substances time, it has evolved together with plants and their root systems, forming symbioses and relationships based on reciprocal exchange of nutrients. We are talking about tons of microorganisms that directly nourish the plant, stimulating growth and allowing important mechanisms of adaptation and resistance to stress.

BluAgri Technology

innovation and nature

The innovative BluAgri technology (protected by Trade secret), combined with the components of natural origin, allows for the restoration of microbial fertility of the soil without having to introduce other micro-organisms, which are foreign to the soil. By doing this it is possible to stabilize the ecosystem in a lasting manner and to increase the well-being and resilience of the treated plants, while also reducing production costs. 90% of bacteria present in soil have a variable metabolism: this means that they can change their function, such as from being useful to becoming pathogens or even neutral in functionality, according to the environmental conditions in which they are placed. Weeding, synthetic fertilizers and incorrect management can impact the microbiome, reducing their metabolism. To the BluAgri technology it is therefore possible to mitigate these effects and bring new life to the soil.

A miracle in the vineyard?
8 Dec 2020

Hot on the heels of California's Healthy Soils Week (30 November to 5 December), culminating in the UN World Soil Day, we look at how a mix of minerals, magnesium sulphate, elemental sulphur and yeast hydrolysates might help vines in the face of climate change. (NB this is not an advert.) The main photo is explained below.

BluVite revealed
9 Dec 2020

The story behind the potential miracle in the vineyard described yesterday, including the trial methodology, plus some alternative practices. See yesterday's article for a detailed explanation of the thermal image above.

BluVite is a commercial product designed to improve crop performance and mitigate the effects of climate change – and to make its owners money.
