HOW IT ALL WORKS
A vast collection of published research supports the use of bio-stimulants to promote soil organic matter and soil health, manifesting in plant growth and increased biomass. Soil testing has shown a positive effect on the soil microbiome and plant fertility to help reduce the use of NPK-based fertilizers.
The microbial makeup of animal digestive systems, the biome, has a direct effect on health, and dietary habits and supplements can affect that makeup. Plants depend on a similar process, living in symbiosis with microbes. The soil around the roots, the rhizosphere, is roughly equivalent to the biome and microorganisms living there are critical to plant growth and health.
Soil bacteria fix nitrogen by converting atmospheric nitrogen into compounds absorbed by the rhizosphere for photosynthesis and the production of organic compounds including amino acids and proteins. The key is that plants don’t fix nitrogen. It is a function of soil bacteria, and there are up to 10 billion bacteria per gram of soil in the rhizosphere.
Enlighten Soil exclusively uses micro-algae – a proven bio-stimulant – in place of. and in conjunction with NPK to provide a direct effect on plants and surrounding soil to boost microbial activity and fertility.
The animal feed market is rapidly changing and many manufacturers are currently looking for sustainable alternatives to established products. Commodities such as corn and soy are staples in animal diets but produce high levels of inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids.
But animal feed can also offer efficiencies with the introduction of both flax and micro-algae that deliver all-important long-chain fatty acids to animals when included in their daily ration. BetterFedFoods and NBO3 Technologies have data from extensive feed trials and research at Kansas State University to balance Omega 6:3 ratios to act as an anti-inflammatory and provide other benefits.
With product labels providing limited information, we created a solution through Transparency Wise. The platform connects shoppers to a product-specific information platform to view an array of product information, including videos showing where it came from, how it was produced, recipes, coupons, and more! We also want you to understand how your food is sourced and the premiums benefitting the producer when the product is purchased.
Transparency Wise’s communication platform is a step beyond to engage the consumer in the sustainability movement.
The BetterFedFoods Climate-Smart Premiums (BCSP) program is designed to shift the independent producer from a livelihood based on subsidies to one rewarded by premiums.
