SoilTech or Ants?

Posted by Eric Mosley

Found a great article today about soils and ants, yes ants.  I posted it on our twitter page (@soiltec) with the caption saying "SoilTech taking a cue from the insect world, or is it the other way around..?".  In the article, scientist tested the soil that ants bring up from the ground or in other term, the soil of their ant hill.  The aggregates made by the ants when it takes a bite while digging and then deposits on the surface is some really good soil.  Also, the digging of the ants itself, helps increase soil moisture due to the water being able to penetrate into the soil more easily and further.  Basically what the ants are doing is exactly what SoilTech is doing to your soil, albeit on a larger scale but SoilTech will give these results on a larger area of your yard.  So either bring hundreds-of-thousands of ants to your customers yards to help with their poor soils or provide them SoilTech!

One of our last blog posts was about a comprehensive test of SoilTech by ISTRC, and one of those tests measured root growth. The test was performed over a short period of time and a reader, Sean, asked about what SoilTech would do over a longer period of time.  So thanks to Sean for bringing this up and we do have some data on what SoilTech will do to root growth over time.

So it’s been awhile or a long while since we last posted but that’s about to change.  We are getting back to writing blogs and talking about, of course SoilTech, but also about lawn care and the industry.

Here at Soil Technologies we always like to say "Healthy Soils, Greener Grass" since everything starts, literally, from the ground up.  If your soils have the right ratio of water, air, and soil, proper nutrients, and abundant microbial activity, you can grow anything.  And of course SoilTech soil amendment is certainly a tool that you can use to achieve that.
