MICROBES - A Huge Key to Soil Health Introducing, ARCHAEA
CHARACTERISTICS OF ARCHAEA
1. Archaea has been found to exist in extreme environments: a. Polar regions b. Volcanic sites, above and below sea level c. Hot springs d. Salt pans
2. Environmental parameters ( high, low, and optimal levels ) : a. Ph (acidic) range: 5.5 to 10.0: Adjust soil ph for crops grown. Adjust ph for different compost material being used. b. Temperature range: above freezing to 185 F. Optimal temperature depends on crop grown. On average 72 F is suitable. For composting above 160 F is desired. c. Moisture level: 10% to activate. Can fully function at near 100% moisture level. Follow normal crop requirements for moisture. Composting moisture can be as low as 20 %, no more than 50%. d. Food source: any organic material can be used as a food source. Any soil supplemental compounds can also be used.
3. Rate of growth : If the environmental parameters are met Archaea will exponentially grow once every 20 minutes.
4. Identifiable characteristics : a. Affinity for eating oil. Most pesticides are made from oil. Archaea will accelerate their decay. b. Extracts silica from rocks. Silica is important for plant cell structure. The remaining rock material will be easily ionized for root uptake. Continued use will increase soil depth. c. Stimulates the plants immune system. When proper growing conditions are met the plant will grow in a less stressful environment. When the proper nutrition is available for the plant the plants immune system will be enhanced. d. Enlarges root ball size. The microbes colonize primarily around the root ball of plants. As the root ball increases there will be an increase in root up take of available food source. e. Increases the flowering in plants. The Archaea has an unusually high amount of the element molybdenum. This is the element responsible for the flowering of plants. f. Increases crop yield. The combination of proper nutrition, available moisture, the elimination of pesticides and herbicides will allow the plant to grow to its genetic potential. You are not forcing the plant to produce more. You are allowing it to produce more. g. Decreases water usage. The high population of microbes in the soil will retain the moisture in the soil and in the root ball system. Therefore there is less evaporation. h. Decreases fertilizer usage. These microbes are classified as efficient mineralizers. They actually use less to produce more. i. Decreases seed germination time. All seeds once moistened have an incubation time before their roots protrude out from their protective layer. This is anywhere from 36 to 48 hours. After this time frame has elapsed the accelerated germination time will begin. If your particular seed has a very short germination time normally then you may not see this difference. But the accelerated growth will become evident as the plant progresses.
5. Precautions and warnings: a. Do not x-ray this product. It is alive and can be destroyed. There are companies who are authorized to ship living microbe products internationally. When the proper safety documentation accompanies these shipments there should be no difficulties to any country that belongs to the WTO. b. Do not freeze this product. The microbes may not die from freezing. But it will greatly reduce their viable cell count and increase the time for activity. c. Keep out of direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure will heat up this product in the packaging and cause evaporation. The maximum storage temperature is 120 F. The minimum moisture level for storage is about 1%. It will die below that. d. These microbes are classified as microaerophelic. They can exist in as little as one ppm of oxygen. Therefore they are aerobic microbes. e. These microbes are very aggressive. They will compete for the food source. Most other microorganisms will not survive in their matrix. The one main exception is the beneficial fungi that assist with soil fertility. Some of the specific plants that are the benefactor from these fungi are roses, mushrooms, potatoes. f. Do not use chlorinated water on these microbes. You should never drink chlorinated water that has not been filtered. The same applies to these microbes. An inline filter system or a bubbler system will eliminate this problem. For small watering projects you may use a sprayer nozzle on your hand help water hose. g. These microbes will not allow methane gas to be produced in a composting situation.
6. This product is non pathogenic, non flammable, non mutational : It is safe for shipment to anywhere in the world. There are so many different soil conditions, variety of crops, weather conditions, available water, available nutrients, and farming methods. It is impossible to create one single test for every farmer, composter, landscaper, and forestry agent. With the above information you should have no problems creating your own testing situation for your specific needs.
Archaea is a highly concentrated blend of beneficial natural microorganisms put together after years of research. Archaea has been proven to :
triple the growth rate,
decrease seed germination time by 2/3
reduce transplant shock
produce more blooms and increase crop yield.
Plants grown with Archaea exhibit healthier roots and increased disease and pest resistance. The microorganisms are primitive "Archaea" collected from salt pans, hot springs, and volcanic regions all over the world. They are hardy and capable of living in a wide range of environmental conditions. Also, due to their primitive nature they coalesce to work as a team, yielding a high efficiency ratio in the soil.
Archaea is necessary to breakdown the trace element organic compounds. These compounds are needed to initiate and maintain all plant and animal immune systems. Healthy plants and soils use less water, nutrients, and still produce more.
Archaea can be used for houseplants, home gardens, lawns, bushes, trees and flowers. Archaea is a great compost starter and septic tank treatment. It can be used to safely decompose a wide range of persistent organic pollutants and toxic compounds that have an otherwise low degree of biodegradability.
