demonstrated a 20 fold increase of aerobic bacteria over the control.

A healthy soil has ratio of at least 10:1 aerobic bacteria to anerobic bacteria. The

treated plot had a ratio of 14:1. The control plot was approximately 1:1.

Wait…there’s more!

Pseudomonads are important in nutrient cycling assisting with phosphorous

availability. The treated plot had a Pseudomonads population 21,000 percent higher than

the control.

The Dramm plot also had a more diverse microbial population. Soil with diverse

microbial populations will be more likely to cope with disturbances and stress than those

with low diversities.

Accent Nature products include Drammatic® Fish as the microbe

food source and Soil Life in place of compost tea as an inoculant of diverse
