Soil Health and Crop Yield

crops

Microorganisms live in a world of chemical signals. They use small molecular weight compounds,  known as metabolites, to regulate the environment in which they live and control the function and  shape of much of the world’s biodiversity. These metabolites function as signalers to microbial  communities in the soil. 


BetterFedFoodsTM’ A+ is derived from Chlorella microalgae. A+ contains phyto-nutrients and metabolites that are expressed during the growth process of the microalgae, as well as bio-active compounds. The metabolites in A+ function as signalers to microbial communities in the soil causing changes in their diversity and abundance. A+ works with the microbes which are native to the soil to enhance their effectiveness. Because A+ enhances the communication between the soil microbes and the crop, the resulting microbial activity is tailored to each field and crop need. In addition, research has shown that A+ also benefits microbial inoculants by jump starting their impact on the soil and the crop.

These microbial communities help make key nutrients available to the crop to provide.

  • Enriched nutrient and water uptake

  • Enhanced plant and root growth

  • Induced microbial growth associated with healthier crops

  • Increased environmental stress tolerance

  • Improved yield Application of A+ will vary based on crop and geography. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation and directions for application.

What is Great A®?

Great A is a natural, organic and proprietary liquid soil booster produced from the cultivation of microalgae. It contains powerful metabolites that are formed during the growth process of the microalgae to support its own growth and health. These same phytonutrients are valuable for land plants as well. Great A is different from other algae products because it is free of any algae biomass, just the valuable metabolites remain after our gentle separation process.

How does it work?

When applied through drip irrigation or foliar spray, these metabolites stimulate the natural microbial activity in the soil, increasing the soil microbial count and diversity. This increase in beneficial microorganisms leads to improved soil quality, root growth, nutrient uptake by the plant and crop integrity.

What Are the Key Benefits of Great A?

  • Natural and organic

  • Contains no algae biomass

  • Applies easily through drip or foliar spray

  • Compatible in most tank mixes

  • Increases productivity 10 to 50%

  • Improves shelf life of some fruit by up to 100%

Great A Improved Yield By 4 To 15% In Corn Across 3 Trials In 2022

Assuming 5% yield improvement

  • Cost to farmer: $4/acre

  • Price of corn: $5.50/bushel

  • Average yield in bushels: 172/acre

  • 5% = 8.6 additional bushels/acre

Extra revenue = $47.30/acre

A+ Signature

What is A+?

A+ Soil Amendment is a unique product consisting of a combination of metabolites extracted from Chlorella vulgaris microalgae and microbes that fix nitrogen and solubilize phosphorus, potassium, and several other secondary and micronutrients.

The formulation is a patented proprietary source and the only one of its kind in the country. It is a metabolite-rich soil booster that enhances natural microbial activity in the soil. This activity helps to release, assimilate, solubilize, and make key nutrients available to the crop.

  • Enriched nutrient and water uptake

  • Enhanced plant and root growth

  • Induced microbial growth associated with healthier crops

  • Increased environmental stress tolerance

  • Improved yield

Haney tests using A+ Soil Amendment on crops and pastures have shown increases in availability of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K), as well as many other nutrients important to the growth and development of various plant species. The Haney tests have also show increases in the important Soil Health Score. Importantly A+ has repeatedly shown to increase organic matter in soil to increase water holding capacity and overall resiliency of the plant!

Testing with BeCrop shows that after two applications and 90 days the Fungi-Bacteria ratios changed from 1:294 to 1:89. Prior to application of the A+ the population of Arbuscular Mycorrhiza was undetectable, but after the A+ application the fungi was measurable, indicating that A+ created a healthy, hospitable environment for the fungi to grow and thrive.

“Chlorella Vulgaris enhances the rhizophagy cycle in bacteria, providing essential endophytes to move in and out of the plant.”
