WELCOME TO BIOACTIVE SOILS

RENEWABLE, PROFITABLE AND SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

We are successful farmers, business people, and agricultural consultants from diverse, but integrated backgrounds. It is our passion to take sustainable agriculture from a merely trendy catch phrase to a living, breathing product which renews depleted soils, making them more nutrient-dense And profitable. Successful collaborations are only possible when all parties are engaged, heading toward a common goal. We wish to form enduring relationships which maximise the agreed upon desired outcomes.

OUR GOAL

To improve the renewal, profitability and sustainability of complex farming operations through collaborative practice.

OUR VALUES

Our values include Honesty, Integrity, Collaboration, and Customisation.

OUR PRODUCT

The basis of our product is composed of New Zealand's high quality "fruits of the sea". Fish, Oysters, and Kina are cold-processed in our factory, forming the backbone of our solid land dressing, liquid follar dressing and supplement. These "backbone products" provide the raw organic material needed for the growth and proliferation of soil microbes, Billions of microbes inhabit each gram of healthy soil, affecting soil structure and fertility. These same soil microbes make the nutrients in the soil available to the plant, produce growth-stimulating hormones and boost the plant's immune system. Soils with higher microbial diversity exhibit higher yields and fewer plant diseases. We brew these microbes in our factory, adding them to our base products trace minerals are added based on independent herbage testing results and the requirements of the area to be dressed. We believe herbage testing is superior to soil testing as it gives an idea of how the plants are growing over time, like a video, as opposed to the snapshot represented by the soil test. The combination of sea-based products and the customised usage of microbiology and trace minerals ensure our dressings are ecologically friendly, unique and functional.
