All Natural Soil Additive for Lawn and Garden

  • All Natural - Fee of chemicals
  • Safe Free of Plant and human pathogens
  • Easy application Just add a few granules near a seed or existing root system

RhizoChar is an all natural, solid form of compost/vermicast tea that conveniently delivers a diverse array of beneficial microbes to the soil - small charcoal granules inoculated with living micro-organisms, enriched substrates and food necessary for optimum soil health. (Vermicast tea is derived from worm castings.)

This formulation allows the microbes to survive harsh soil environments. The organisms are dormant until exposed to root exudates, water and warmth. Once exposed to these elements they begin their growth cycle, improving nutrient cycling and plant health.

This is living material with a shelf life of approximately one year. Store RhizoChar in a cool dry place until ready to use.

How It Works and Benefits
Over application of chemical fertilizers and pesticides along with harsh tillage of th soil deplete beneficial soil micro-organisms. RhizoChar helps replenish these important microbes by providing them on a carbon-based carrier to "seed" your soil near the plant root system called the "rhizosphere." A symbiotic relationship develops in this area between the plant root and the various organisms; each reeds off the others' waste.

  • Healthier plants Replenishes beneficial flora and fauna necessary for healthy roots and plants
  • Improved water and nutrient uptake Mycorrhizal fungi included in this mix grow hyphae that attach to plant roots and act like an extended root system providing nutrients and water to the plant
  • Increased nutrient cycling Specialized bacteria increase nitrogen and phosphorus availability
  • Increased plant growth/yield Field trials demonstrate improved growth and vigor for vegetables, turf, and field crops.
  • Natural pest repellent Microbe produced enzymes naturally repel some invertebrate pests

RhizoChar is Very Green!
One of the key benefits of a soil rich with beneficial micro-organisms is the ability of some of te organisms to fix carbon into the soil. Recent research has identified one substance called glomalin that is made by fungi contained in our product. Glomalin is a carbon sink that reduces total CO2 levels in the atmosphere. Scientists believe that glomalin is responsible for up to 1/3 of the carbon sequestered in the soil.

A Little Goes a Long Way
Each granule contains millions of micro-organisms along with starter nutrients. Field trials confirm that a contact method of planting (adding a few granules around a seed) is sufficient to begin the growth process around the roots.

Application Rates

Contact seeding: 1 oz. for 10 linear feet. About 20 lbs. per acre

Turf: 100 lbs per acre for normal use. 150 - 200 lbs / acre for heavily used and new growth areas.
