Mineralization of organic matter
“The goal is to increase the solicitation of the soil’s microbial activity. Only that will give us a proper mineralization context. This process involves the transformation of organic matter such as crop residues, animal waste and organic fertilizers. For this to happen, there are two main microflora: first, microflora in charge of decomposition and, secondly, microfora in charge of assimilation in the rhizosphere,” Mr Benoit Le Rumeur, Technical Support Manager Plant Care, said at the event.
To boost the mineralization, it is necessary for the microflora to synthesize the enzymes needed for the transformation of the organic matter involved in this chain. Providing a mineral balance is essential for a correct biological reaction within the soil.
