Â For most growers,Â harvest time signals the pinnacle of a long effort of hard work and financial investment towards a profitable agricultural operation.Â It is also the start to the challenge of restoring the soil to optimal nutrient levels for next yearâ€™s growing season.Â According to research at the University of Minnesota, there are at least 16 essential nutrients for healthy plant growth.Â Most of these essential nutrients are absorbed by crops and depleted at varying rates during the growing season which leaves the land lacking critical elements required for healthy crops, come next spring. WRTâ€™s (www.myaglife.com/wrtag) successful program prepares farms for healthy profits in the next growing season.
Each crop field has a different nutrient profile. Traditionally, growers use a simple acid test to analyze the nutrient levels without understanding the complete scope of their soilâ€™s post-harvest deficiencies.Â In most cases, this leads the grower to add too much fertilizer, rich in one set of nutrients while leaving the soil un-repaired in other nutrient categories.Â The result can be poor crop quality and an overall decrease in production.
The comprehensive approach developed by Soil and Agro-Expert, John Witzke, Founder of WRT (www.myaglife.com/wrtag) goes much further towards providing each individual grower with their own unique soil analysis.Â Going beyond the simple acid test, the WRT approach includes a â€œsaturated paste extractâ€ which is sent to a certified lab for in-depth analysis.Â The results of the analysis reveal an exact reading of bicarbonates, chlorides and other essential elements present in the soil so that the grower can accurately address what is needed to restore the soil to full growth potential.
As John Witzke definitively states, â€œWRT believes the soil is by far the most valuable and most important element of any growerâ€™s operation.Â By using the WRT approach to sampling and analysis, the soil will receive only the nutrients it needs, without the risk of over-fertilizing the land with chemicals it doesnâ€™t need.â€
The last step in the WRT approach is the implementation process.Â WRT handles each individual grower with an in-person, customized water and soil nutrient management plan.Â The results of the lab tests are reviewed and addressed and recommendations for accurate, comprehensive corrections are crafted to suit the particular needs of each grower.Â The Agro-Experts at WRT have incorporated a full range of soil renewal products designed by BIO SI, Baicor and the other scientifically tested products into their solution plan.Â BIO SIâ€™s product portfolio covers everything from organic soil inoculants that help restore soil naturally and ensure water absorption occurs more efficiently, to a stubble digestion formula that turns left over debris from harvest into reusable nutrients.
Combining the long established expertise and personalized guidance of the WRT approach with BIO SIâ€™s innovative, natural soil rejuvenation products, growers across Americaâ€™s Agro-industry should be taking advantage of the cutting edge advancements in soil restoration and reap the available benefits of a healthier crop field.Â The motto at WRT is to restore life to the soil and nutrition to foods by providing growers customized strategies and sound, sustainable solutions that enhance their own farms, orchards, and cropland.
