Introduction

Introduction

 
Fertiliser products that consist of organic matter such as Dinofert, play an important role in the formation of a fertile soil. Organic matter is a natural source of plant nutrients which promotes a more active and larger microbial soil population. An increased population of soil organisms leads to more nitrogen in the soil and thus improves the plant's nutrient uptake combined with enhanced soil biology.
 
 
 
Organic material also provides the food source for soil organisms, such as worms, fungi and beneficial bacteria. These in turn provide a significant number of positive changes to soil structure and fertility of the soil. For example, these organisms aid in the breakdown of organic matter into humus, which acts by gluing the soil particles together and stabilising the soil, offering protection against the environmental impacts of wind and water erosion.
 
 
 
The addition of organic matter to your soil, and in turn, to your crop, increases the water absorption and retention of the soil. Organic matter can hold up to 20 times their weight in water and consequently less moisture is needed for your crops. This stands contrary to the long-term use of inorganic fertilisers which tend to cause precious water to leach out of the soil and can ‘lock up’ certain nutrients depending on the acidity or alkalinity of your soil type. 
 
 
 
Organic matter and Dinofert fertilisers, contains readily available Major nutrients and trace elements. All essential elements are of equal importance and while plants may require only a minimum amount of trace elements, these trace elements must be available for healthy plant growth.
Preparing your soils for any commercial enterprise is critical to yield and quality for the commercial markets. Dinofert Premium Organic Fertilisers increase the organic matter and overall health of your soils as well as ensuring the sustainability of your future crops. Enhancing soil biology enhances the life and well-being of your precious soils.
