Kobus's biggest consideration to use BlackGold enriched fertilizers was that healthy roots mean more productive trees.

Kobus se grootste oorweging om BlackGold verrykte kunsmis te gebruik, was dat gelukkige wortels ’n meer produktiewe boom beteken.

Why?

The traditional fertiliser concept is to feed the plant and not the micro-organisms in the root-zone. The importance of these rhizophilic microbes and the significant contribution to plant growth and overall yield is ignored by the traditional chemical orientated fertiliser manufacturers. This has led to a decline in soil fertility world-wide causing farmers to use more fertilisers to obtain the same results as in the past.

How?

To increase microbial growth in the root zone, conventional methods such as the addition of compost, green manures, cover crops or adding various forms of animal or bird manures can be used.

Although these methods form the basis of sustainable soil management and will all stimulate microbial growth in some way or another, it all requires a lot of additional input and effort. The ideal situation is to stimulate microbial growth in the root zone every time you fertilise.
