About UsLearn more about SoilBiotics
SoilBiotics was founded in 2010 in Fairbury, IL with the purpose of providing a comprehensive line of non-toxic conventional and organic plant growth systems based on improving soil structure, reducing water usage, and increasing the plants ability to metabolize nutrients. Now based in new facilities near Kankakee, IL, SoilBiotics has quickly grown to become a leader in specialty inputs for commercial agriculture, commercial/residential gardening, turf/grasses and more. SoilBiotics maintains a highly trained and experienced sales team based throughout the United States, with qualified dealers serving growers in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
SoilBiotics Growth Systems, (Conventional and Organic), utilize naturally occurring humic matter or humates, which were formed through the chemical and biological humification of plant and animal matter over millions of years. Humates are recognized by many in the sustainable agriculture movement as one of the most productive inputs available to growers. They have the ability to chemically bond with nutrients in the soil for increased absorption by the plant. In addition, they increase the permeability of plant cells which has been shown to both increase nutrient uptake and decrease stress on plants throughout the growing season. The overall effect is substantially increased yields.
Additional services include the SoilBiotics Soil Testing Program, provided through GMS Laboratories in Cropsey, IL. This program provides a soil analysis that aids in determining pre-plant and side-dress fertilization requirements. It was created by GMS and SoilBiotics with certain criteria to provide an understanding of the crop production capabilities of each field in terms of salinity, soil type, water holding capacity, percolation, and much more!
SoilBiotics is a member of the Humic Products Trade Association (HPTA), Organic Certifiers, and The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), and supports local FFA efforts.
