Soils and substrates associated with denuded sites from construction,
mining, energy development and other land disturbing activities
are inherently lacking in organic matter, nutrients and
biological activity essential to sustainable vegetative establishment.
Ideally these sites would be covered with several inches
(centimeters) of rich fertile topsoil to help develop a reasonable
growing medium. However, there is simply not enough suitable
or reasonably priced topsoil to ameliorate inhospitable conditions
on every site.
Patent-pending ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) has
been designed as a topsoil alternative that accelerates the development
of depleted soils/substrates with low organic matter, low
nutrient levels and limited biological activity. ProGanics is not a
direct replacement for expensive topsoil, but provides an abundant
source of organic matter and soil building components to
quickly modify soil chemistry, initiate growth establishment and buildup of the uppermost “O”
and “A” soil horizons.
Unlike peat harvested from fragile wetlands, all components of the ProGanics Biotic Soil Media
blend are naturally derived and renewable, and engineered to optimize moisture retention, growth
and establishment of vegetation.
