Welcome back! In this chapter of the Sow, Grow, and Know series, we continue our exploration of Soileos, a groundbreaking product reshaping the agri-tech landscape (read the first post here). Let's dive into the heart of the Soileos story — the exclusive mode of action. Soileos's technological advancement lies in its innovative cellulose-based mode of action, which sets it apart from traditional fertilizers. By binding essential nutrients to cellulose fibres, Soileos creates a water-insoluble bond that acts as a protective shield. This unique design prevents nutrient loss through leaching or strong soil chelation, minimizing resource wastage and environmental degradation.
This provides sustained bioavailability of nutrients for plants by maximizing nutrient utilization (see image below). This combination of nutrient protection and controlled nutrient release makes Soileos a highly efficient and environmentally friendly crop nutrition solution.
What truly sets Soileos apart is its gradual nutrient release through microbial mineralization. Unlike the feast-and-famine cycle of traditional fertilizers, where nutrients are delivered in a sudden burst followed by a subsequent deficit, Soileos offers a different approach. As soil microbes break down the cellulose, nutrients are slowly released into the soil through microbial mineralization. By doing so, Soileos harnesses the power of soil microbes as natural nutrient regulators. These tiny soil workers break down the cellulose, and nutrients are released in a measured and consistent manner, ensuring a continuous feast of nourishment for the plants without the subsequent famine.

Reaping the Benefits of Bioavailability:
Soileos offers a holistic and fine-tuned nutrient delivery system that can enhance crop performance and soil health. By aligning the nutrient release with plant needs, Soileos ensures that plants receive the right balance of nutrients at the optimal time. This precision nourishment promotes healthier plant growth and significantly boosts crop performance.
Soileos nourishes plants and enriches soil health, making it a precious asset in agriculture. As soil microbes engage with Soileos and break down cellulose, their activity stimulates the soil ecosystem, promoting a vibrant, diverse, thriving microbial community. This leads to a more robust soil structure better equipped to support future crop cycles.
Soileos' distinct mode of action intertwines enhanced agricultural productivity with environmental preservation, illustrating that effective farming practices and ecological mindfulness can be simultaneously achieved. This environmental benefit is embodied in two key areas: water protection and carbon sequestration.
- Soileos addresses the environmental hazard of nutrient pollution in water systems. These traditional products rapidly dissolve in water, leading to nutrient leaching and runoff, contaminating water bodies and disrupting aquatic ecosystems. Soileos, on the other hand, with its cellulose-based technology, safeguards against such issues. The essential nutrients in Soileos are bound to cellulose fibres in a water-insoluble bond, preventing them from leaching or prematurely tying up in the soil. This revolutionary approach ensures that nutrients are gradually released into the soil, minimizing the risk of water contamination and significantly protecting our water resources.
- Soileos contributes significantly to carbon sequestration, a crucial strategy in combating climate change. This process assists in the reduction of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. As a result, the use of Soileos fosters a lower carbon footprint farming practice, contributing meaningfully to the global efforts against climate change.
Soileos is more than just a bioactive fertilizer - it's a sustainable solution for modern agriculture. Its unique mode of action not only enhances crop yields and soil health but also positively impacts our environment, underlining our commitment to responsible and sustainable farming. This commitment to sustainability and technological innovation makes Soileos a trailblazer in agri-tech.
