We as humans should not second guess what nutrients are required at any particular stage of crop growth.
In a healthy living system, the plant’s roots will extract the necessary nutrients by communication with the plant through the magic of photosynthesis – effectively taking what is needed on a daily basis.
In return for nutrients the plant will dump carbon, in the form of glucose, into the root zone, encouraging the roots to extract more nutrients for the health of the plant.
This is a natural system that has never failed as long as the soil is a living, breathing ecosystem.
Per kilogram of healthy broadacre soil there should be more than three kilometres of beneficial fungal hyphae strands, along with many species of bacteria, to create a healthy rhizosphere for the production of a healthy root system.
YLAD Living Soils’ signature product, Germinate Plus, is a microbe friendly, carbon-based blend supplying soluble and slow release nutrients, including trace minerals, which produces plant roots with an active rhizosphere.
It is in this area that soluble nutrients are held tightly and sixty per cent of soil microbes live close to the roots.
These microbes use the glucose from photosynthesis for energy, supplying nutrients back to the plant in a balanced bio available manner.

The greater the microbial population in the rhizosphere, the greater the nutrient extraction by the plant.
Dressing the seed with plant hormones, enzymes and minerals, supplied by the liquid seed dressing, Seed Start is proven in independent trials to enhance germination and promote early vigour and improved plant health.
This is the first time in the plants life it starts to determine the final yield.
To ensure the plant has every opportunity to withstand drier than normal seasons, discuss your 2018 sowing program with YLAD Living Soils.
