Farm To Fork Across America: Julie’s Adventures With Bio-Nutrient Soil, A Sea-Crop Story

Julie Brothers shares her personal story of using Sea-Crop®.

So now, six months later, study complete, results tabulated, what did this bio-nutrient density study reveal, and what exactly does bio-nutrient dense soil imply?

Paradoxically, the health of just two feet of soil largely determines the quality of the world’s food. A hot new scientific frontier, the study of bio-nutrient dense soils is modeling this two feet and its impact on nutrient uptake. The premise is that a rich, healthy soil dramatically increases a crop’s nutrient content, while sustaining soil quality. That being said, the study results where astonishing.

The amendment used, Sea-Crop®, is a microbial stimulant derived from the mineral density flowing from mountain streams into oceans. Sea-Crop® is mined from this flow and from underwater volcanic sources rich in minerals and the basic elements for plant life. After desalinization, it is ready for use.

To note just a few of the significant increases found in all six crops: cauliflower, swiss chard, carrots, beets, fennel and spinach, the average increase in crop yield was 62%, protein increased 13%, Brix test increased 35% and Phenolics 10%.

Growing in Circles

Plantagon International’s new technology will provide enough water & food for everyone? Their proposed vertical farm in Sweden grows food on a moving spiral. By the time the plants get to the top, your produce is ready for picking. http://plantagon.com

Plantagon International is active in the sector urban agriculture and is a global innovation leader in vertical farming. Plantagon’s vertical greenhouse minimizes the need for energy, water and pesticides. The negative environmental impact of the greenhouses is very low, and since the products are delivered directly to consumers in the city, the transportation costs are also minimized. The concept is simple and appealing: daily fresh organic vegetables delivered daily directly to consumers. No middle hands, no yesterday’s food.
