Nutritional Calories for the Soil Microbes
The building blocks of all life including the biota and fungi (mycorrhizae) of soil are amino acids, so in order to provide this nutritional caloric food we use protein from plants.
Amino acids are also part of the nitrogen budget of plants when the mycorrhizal fungi digest protein from other dead biota, insect exoskeletons, etc., and transport the now liquid free amino acids into the host plant.
This product is called Protein Crumblies.
Protein Crumblies is a vegetable source of protein built out of Amino Acids. Amino Acids are the building blocks of all Proteins and all life, essential for the construction of all life on Earth. Protein contains calories used by living creatures as energy, where every gram of protein contains 4 calories of energy. Within the molecular structure of Protein are the structures called Amino Acids and within the Amino Acid Structure is the part called the Amino which contains Nitrogen. We eat protein because we need Nitrogen just like plants need Nitrogen and the microbes of soil need Protein not only for the Nitrogen, but for the caloric energy.
Protein Crumblies provides the following benefits:
- Supports Soil Ecology by providing protein needed for the Soil Food Web.
- Builds microbial biomass
- Increases crop yields
- Improves drought tolerance
- Improves Carbon Sequestering of the Soil by growing root and microbe biomass.
- Improves food nutrient density
- Provides Amino Acids which can be used by plants for Nitrogen uptake.
- Unlike Nitrogen fertilizers, Vegetable Protein does not have a salt index.
- Can replace Salt Index based Nitrogen fertilizer and meets the USDA NOP
- Improves the crop/vegetation’s tolerance of environmental stress
