Better Organix liquid karma pack is a low phosphate system that relies on active biology to cycle phosphorous on demand, and at a rate set by our plants not us. Crucially we limit phosphate inputs at critical stages, but we dont negate phosphorous all together. Our system is based on active biology, we have low P products at either end of our system, this is quite deliberate and has a number of ecological decisions that support it. The lack of P at peak growth ends is exactly the time most P is being wasted in typical systems. 1. When we have under developed root systems. 2. When we are in very late bloom and plants have shut down many systems typical PCD in short day crops. Better Organix is committed to delivering safe, environmentally sound plant growth systems that allow us as growers to get the very best out of our plants, without damaging the local environment, water systems, soil ecology and ultimately human health. Our system begins with establishing sound bacterial and mycorrhizal colonies, these brilliant all natural workers don't like high P levels while they establish themselves. In order to realise P for our plants, we must 1st understand that only 15% of supplemental P, eg that which we add, is used by our plants. 80% of all plant ready P is realized via fungal and bacterial symbiosis. Phosphorous is a complex and unstable element. It occurs in soils in 3 states, Soluble P, Active P and Fixed P. It comes from decaying plant and animal matter and its generally found in the top layers of soil systems, hence it really is abundant. Its one of the nutrients that is self defeating when we add extra, esp at the wrong time. The more we add, the more fixed P we end up with, the greater amount of P we need to add to maintain the Soluble and Active Pools and so on forever and ever. Movement of P is slow, in the wild there is movement between the 3 pools of P, but movement to active from fixed happens at an incredibly slow rate. Fixed P is that which is unavailable to your plant. Any movement in the wild will be biological if the soil is live. We at Better Organix know a simple truth, there is plenty of P in the world, we do not need to continually add it, rather we need to be better at getting it from the abundant fixed pools all around us, in to the active and soluble systems, where we can benefit from its presence. At Better Organix, we manage P and plant health using a combination of Myco's and PSB safe liquid FPE'S, carbon sources, proteins, aminos, enzymes and not the traditional acidified minerals labeled organic. We can pretend that our added P isnt the problem, or we can as a community begin to take humble pie and understand we have much to learn. Quotes on nutrients versus biology from - Associate Professor Mohamed Hijri, from the department of biological sciences of the University of Montreal and Professor of Plant Pathology Matteo Lorito, from the University of Naples Mohamed Hijri: Less than 60% of applied fertilizers are actually used by the plants. Unused phosphorus and nitrogen can cause serious environmental problems. Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi act as an extension of root systems, increasing the surface area that is used for nutrient absorption by more than hundred-fold. Hijri’s Ted talk about ending the coming phosphorus crisis was viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. Matteo Lorito contributed to the American Academy of Microbiology report ‘How microbes can help feed the world’. It claims that ‘Improved understanding of plant-microbe interactions can increase crop productivity by 20% while reducing fertilizer and pesticide requirements by 20%, within 20 years.
